Carved from the earth at the dawn of the 19th century, the terraced gardens are one of a kind. From wisteria draped stone walls, to the serenity of the reflecting pond, as you traverse the 4.5-acres, you discover that each space is a room unto itself with special features to capture in your photos, or wow guests.
