This is a 20-year-old garden sloping toward and overlooking Cayuga Lake. The two-acre property is sheltered by a dense border of conifers, ornamental trees, and flowering bushes. Perennial beds, flowering bushes, and a thyme garden welcome visitors to the front of the house. The south side features an herb garden, which terraces toward a pergola supporting wisteria, and a vegetable garden. The backyard is lined by a mixed border of cottage gardens filled with perennials, annuals, and flowering shrubs. A winding path leads toward a secret garden with Asian influences and featuring a waterfall, small pond, and patio.
