Mt. Kisco, NY
This 1925 home in Mount Kisco is one of five designed and built by Lillian Greneker, whose works are now curated in Harvard's Arthur and Elizabeth Schlesinger Library on the History of Women in America. Her husband, C. P. Greneker, was then director of publicity for the Shubert Theater. This two-acre property has meandering woodchip trails, two streams, seven small bridges, and two "secret" gardens. It includes a natural fern garden and other beautiful perennial gardens, created by the owners, that contain Astilbe, roses, statuary, a kitchen stone garden, and other whimsical features. The home, on this undulating property, is enchanting.
Directions: From the Taconic Parkway North, take Exit 8 left onto Campfire Road, then right onto Route 100 N. After 3.5 miles, turn right onto Crow Hill Road. The property, #375, is 0.4 miles ahead on the right. Street parking is available across the street on Spring Meadows Road.
