This site is NOT open to public.
Brief description of site
This is a Japanese style garden, laid out in around 1964-5 by a small team of gardeners from Japan led by Mr Kasamoto and the Chinese-Russian painter Viacheslav Atroshenko (1935-1994). The site was designed for Milton Grundy Esq, surrounding a weekend house completed in 1964 to designs by the architects Roy Stout and Patrick Litchfield.
Brief history of site
The land on which the New House and its surrounding garden were built, was bought by the barrister Milton Grundy in 1958. The pool at the New House was designed and built by a team of Japanese gardeners led by Mr Kasamoto and the garden was designed by Viacheslav Atroshenko and planted by him and Milton Grundy. A number of existing mature trees, including fir, cedar, oak and a prominent horse chestnut in the corner of the site were incorporated into the design in order to let the careful composition blend in with its natural surroundings.
