Newton, MA

 

A beautiful, large Queen Anne’s Victorian, this house sits on a site with little existing landscape character.  The new owners committed to meeting the quality of the architecture in the landscape through creating gardens rooms for gathering, play, cars, and entry.  The landscape leading to the historic house front had been fenced off and ignored over previous decades, this renovation transforms the front slope and reconnects the property with the community.
