This past weekend our good friend Janet Enright, landscape designer extraordinaire, came up for a visit. As we walked around the property, she repeated, under her breath, “wow,” many, many times.
The property needs a lot of work, cleaning up and such, but it has lots of potential. The 4.3 acres are approximately one third grassy field and two thirds woods. The fences are a disaster. There is a garden area, with a deer fence, of sorts, and irrigation, but it hasn’t been tested yet so no idea what kind of shape it’s in. Very little is flat, but nothing is so steep as to make it unusable. The property is separated by a dry gully, the image to the left is the view up the gully from the bottom of the property, and there’s a spring, which is awesome, that was still flowing in August when we first viewed the property, even after the long stretch of drought we’ve experienced in California.
This is going to be so much fun.
