1670 Pickles This rustic house and garden have been featured in numerous TV programs, books, magazines and calendars. Surrounded by towering woodlands, the mature ornamental garden cascades into a small valley, extensively terraced with local sandstone. Clipped boxwood and other evergreen shrubs provide all-season interest. Combined with many exuberant roses, drought-tolerant grasses, perennials and ground-covers, they create a big but low-maintenance garden that requires little watering. The whimsical small house within the garden is owner-built from largely recycled and hand-hewn materials. A large vegetable garden and fruit trees give a year-round supply of organic produce.
