Spacious gardens surround the Ann and Carlton Manzano's 1800s farmhouse and are well-integrated with the sloping topography near the house and the surrounding woodlands beyond. Near the house, the pool area is surrounded with lush, tropical plantings, while the steep slopes behind the house are planted with a dense mix of perennials, shrubs and ground covers. Be sure to visit the barn that houses the art studio – Carlton is a plein aire artist and dozens of his paintings are on display in the barn, which he built himself using a style that matches the era of their historic farmhouse. Carlton's whimsical sculptures made of natural wood pieces can be found along the woodland edge and paths.
NOTE: This garden was featured on an Open Days Garden Tour and is not open to the public at other times.
