Squirrel Hall is a surprisingly witty garden, formally designed on a tiny village lot of less than one acre. The central axis is defined by an allée of sixteen hornbeams with two secret niches. The garden is organized into a series of rooms with features usually reserved for large estates. The front lawn is enclosed by shrubs and an asparagus bed.
A boxwood walkway leads to the front door as well as through an antique gate to the sunken garden, across the gravel and up the steps to a pavilion terrace and dining courtyard. Walk a few more steps up to the allée. The apiary is to the east, the petite orchard to the west, and a border of peonies is enclosed by a collection of hydrangea and other shrubs to the north. Two English terra-cotta chimneys mark the entrance to a secret woodland stroll garden featuring hemlocks, shade-loving perennials and shrubs, and a bungalow.
