The grounds of this estate sized lot- 1.64 acres are amazing! The goal of the landscape architect was to provide privacy for the estate as well as visually entertaining the owners and their guests with flowering plants throughout the growing season. A long driveway at the end of Montrose Lane from the cul-de-sac takes you to the circular driveway that surrounds a terraced area with formal planters. Bearing to the right before the circular driveway takes you to the garage. The beginning of the driveway has been planted for privacy on the west side and has natural woods on the east side. From the circular driveway down the property is bound by the Nicholas course on both sides A brick wall built just high enough to give privacy from the cart path of the golf course but not high enough to compromise the view of Howe Creek planted with ficus vine encloses the back yard. The formal circular garden area is repeated in the back yard but differently by taking advantage of the topography of the yard, creating stairs and walkways into a circular garden of terraced planting areas full of annuals, perennials and garden herbs. The swimming pool overlooks the gardens and Howe's Creek.
