The landscaping of this French neoclassical home reinforces its sense of European grandeur. While the front, with boxwood parterres and topiaries, imparts a formal bearing, the design relaxes in the back, with a focus on outdoor living. The pool and terrace are shaped in a quatrefoil and the area is framed by plantings, including English-style perennial borders, and the large-scale fire pit is set amid a geometric scheme.  Along the periphery, a small herb and edible garden features raspberry bushes, blueberry and blackberry patches, and an array of fruit trees.
