GARDEN TOUR DESCRIPTIONS

12-5pm for Ticket Holders at $100 and Above

 

Garden of Dr. Richard Axel, East Hampton.  This Georgica garden, originally owned by the art dealer Ben Heller and masterfully tended by Ray Smith both then and now, is filled with magnificent, old specimen trees that are like an art collection in and of themselves, reminiscent of Alfonso Ossorio’s conifer collection at The Creeks.  Among the specimens are numerous large, unusual conifers, both weeping and otherwise, ancient twisted Japanese maples and beeches and a cathedral grouping at one boundary with a needle-carpeted woodland walk beneath.

 

Darby Lane Garden, East Hampton.  Located on the site of the grand old “Spencecliff” estate, this garden still has a magnificent Italianate stone grotto dating back to the 1920s, complete with terraces and a temple of Diana above.  A new studio/guest house on the hill above the grotto, with a pebble-filled courtyard, looks down on the other side onto a kitchen and cutting garden and orchard that puts one in mind of the Italian countryside.  Exuberant pots and contemporary sculpture are throughout.

 

The following three gardens are all located on a small private lane off Further Lane in East Hampton:

 

Garden of Calista and Ira Washburn This is a gardener's garden created and tended by its owners for more than 35 years.  A three-story-high espaliered pear tree, lathe house with wonderful play of light and shade, perennial and mixed borders offer a contemporary take on the domestic architecture of the 1737 homestead at the heart of their home.

 

Garden of Lalitte Scott Smith.  A passion for alpine plants and rock gardens was the vision that drove Lalitte Scott Smith, the propagator, and her late husband Howell Scott, the designer, when they moved to Further Lane in the mid-1990s.  Their rock garden, under the dappled light of clumps of native shads, is unique on the East End.  Magnificent specimen trees grace the front lawn, while perennial borders in the rear balance the rock garden.   

 

Garden of Stefanie and Fred Shuman.  Located at the end of the lane, visitors to this property are greeted by the original 1810 Hayground windmill that gives the street its name.  The home, on the crest of the second dune, overlooks the dunes and ocean.  The plantings facing the ocean are deliberately kept low so as not to compete with the view.  Looking upward from the pool area at the base of the hill gives the sensation of climbing out of a steep, wooded gorge, emphasized by a simple white bridge overhead.  Designer Jane Lapin of Wainscott Farms worked in close collaboration with the owner.

 

Garden of Sandy and Steve Perlbinder, Sagaponack.  Designed by Chris LaGuardia, this dramatic oceanfront property in Sagaponack has a classic modernist feel.  An early Norman Jaffe beach house built by the owners in the late 1960s, with a more recent addition designed by their son-in-law, sits back from the ocean on a simulated dune planted with beach grass.  Other features include a two-acre pond, grassy meadows and screens of shadblows limbed up high.  House and landscape together are a minimalist masterpiece.

 

Garden of Ian Gazes and Serge Krawiecki, East Hampton.  Located on Skimhampton Road, this garden is shielded from the world outside by tall trees and shrubs that create a wholly separate, enchanted world within.  Designed by Craig Socia, key features of the garden include a twig-style child’s playhouse right out of a fairy tale, a European-feeling entry courtyard and a serene park-like expanse behind the house with glorious perennial borders.
