The gardens are sympathetically landscaped and had stunning views. I was not as impressed with the house but I loved the modernist studio and the art deco railings and panels.

When the azaleas and camellias are out this is an amazing garden. It is also beautiful with the mist and the garden and little amphitheatre in winter. A beautiful large garden area to walk around... take a picnic with a camera or a drawing pad......More
