Trade Secrets 2019: Good Dogs Farm
This property reflects a passion for the outdoors and a philosophy that most things are better when they are shared with friends, when simple pleasures are part of the plan, and when things aren’t taken too seriously. Here, good dogs romp and friends linger. Hand-built garden paths lead to numerous garden rooms, “secret” sitting areas, an outdoor shower and an outdoor sleeping room. An antique-marble & brick wood-burning bake oven is surrounded by a hedge that defines a pea-stone cooking courtyard. A handmade, rough-cedar “country Chippendale” fence surrounds a large vegetable/cutting garden where a crowded bat house towers above. Further out, horses and mini-donkeys graze next to the Housatonic river. The gardens are relaxed and imperfect, hand-wrought and ever-evolving.
