Gardens are a work of art and bring life and beauty to a home. I personally just visited Kykuit, the Rockefeller estate which exhibits the most amazing landscape architecture I have ever seen. It inspired me to think about the beautiful listings I have where the current owners have created their own outdoor work of art and how I can share their gardens in my blog. The following properties currently for sale feature blooming gardens that give the home vitality and splendor.
80 Whippoorwill Lake Rd is in the premier location of Whippoorwill in Chappaqua. This special home is located on a quiet cul-de-sac that is enveloped by nature. Walls of glass showcase exquisite gardens, fountains, and specimen trees for year round tranquility and magical appeal. Stone paths have been created to view the gardens and enjoy their splendor from different perspectives. The property is tiered and mother nature created many beautiful spaces to enjoy that are both sunny and shaded. The neighborhood has a lake for kayaking, nature walks and fishing.
Perennial gardens create the landscape backdrop for reservoir views at 16 Whippoorwill Rd in Armonk. The farm-to-table lifestyle embodied by the organic vegetable garden, raspberry bushes, potting shed, and significant post-and-beam horse barn is available and ready for the new owner’s enjoyment and entertainment. Located a mere 3 minutes from downtown Armonk’s gourmet groceries, lattes and bagels that rival NYC make this home convenient to town yet private.
If you have been inspired to enjoy spectacular gardens this summer, then consider attending Open Garden Days, hosted by the Garden Conservancy. Each summer, select hosts open their captivating gardens during a scheduled day (or several days) for self-guided tours. The upcoming Open Garden days in Westchester county are scheduled for July 21 and July 29. For locations and more information, click here.
Let me know in advance if you’re thinking of planning on attending either or both Garden Days. If you are yearning for your own private garden, I can schedule a tour of the homes featured above – or any other property you have your eye on.
