Worshipers of formal gardens will be in heaven, and even casual nature lovers will adore the 160 landscaped and blooming acres of the former Phipps estate. Stroll among the wildflower-filled nooks, lilac-laden walkways, wide-open lawns, formal rose gardens, and meticulously maintained ponds -- all in a constantly changing display of seasonal colors. Step inside the property's gorgeous, Charles II-style three-story mansion furnished with fine English antiques and decorative arts; it's virtually unchanged from when the Phipps family lived here in the early 20th century.
