Quiet Retreat

A place of privacy and serenity.

The front and rear gardens of this corner property offer two distinct outdoor experiences. Densely planted paths on either side of the entrance pull you into the gardens and hide you from view when you arrive. In the rear garden the existing retaining walls were reconfigured to create a sunny courtyard where the owners enjoy reading and visiting with friends through many months of the year. The mood in the front garden is more contemplative: a meditation labyrinth and a bench beneath a tree invite quiet reflection.
