A lush retreat unfolds behind this elegant 1936 Tuxedo Park home. Thirty years in the making, gardenias, camellias, and boxwoods frame a serene pool area shaded by mature wax myrtles, palms and a cherry tree. Sculptures are interwoven across 1.5 acres, from a totem pole nestled in the shade to abstract figures watching over an English style walled garden, hedged with hydrangeas. Splendid 100-year-old gingkos and climbing roses line a side drive. The owners have collaborated with noted garden designers, including Ed Castro Landscape.
