Point of Interest Details

Directions

My husband and I purchased the property around 9 years ago from a long time resident of Shelter Harbor. The Petersons had many gardens, fruit trees, veggies and flowers. Although a mature property it was tired and overgrown. Our vision was to update, modernize and bring a fresh look to the inside and out. Simple classical lines with a bit of fun. We kept the dilapidated chicken coop and turned into a little fun space.

There are many planted areas each with a different feeling. I love mixing old and new. We planted more fruit trees to create an orchard on the side lawn. Being a summer resident bring challenges with timing and seasons. The wildlife also is a deterrent to planting the variety I would like. On the upper back lawn we like to set up a volleyball net for games with family and friends and the lower lawn is for Bocce, a family favorite. Will Soto put in the fountain and boxwoods and maintains the yard very well and I am grateful.
