Provenance:

Collection Creator:

Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Nindethana (Nantucket, Massachusetts)
United States of America -- Massachusetts -- Nantucket County -- Nantucket
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet and garden plan.
General:
The present owners purchased seven acres of land bordering native cranberry bogs under cultivation. The property was layered with clay and surrounded on two sides by a hardwood forest (unique on Nantucket). After completing the house construction, the owners surrounded the rear with an 8 foot deep pond landscaped with native bayberry and pine; and stocked the pond with koi. A 100x100 foot sunken garden with croquet court exists off the guest wing. This garden is surrounded by a wood lattice fence ending in an arched arbor walk entered through four moongates. Roses, perennials, annuals, and sculpted arborvitae and boxwood fill the borders and cover the fencing. A privet maze surrounds a Grandiflora magnolia outside the garden and leads to a swimming pool area. Terraces in random cut bluestone surround a dark granite pool. A native fern forest grows beneath tupelos in the nearby wetlands. The garden won the Hunnewell gold medal from the Massachusetts Horticultural Society for outstanding design on an estate over seven acres in 1993.
Persons associated with the property include: Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Robert (former owners, 1983-2000); Hoen Meier (landscape designer, 1983-1988); Edward Knowles (architect, 1983-1990); Leonard Campanale (gardener/designer, 1988-2003); and Larry Schuck (builder of arbor and fence).

Date:
[between 1914 and 1949?]
General:
Bruce Porter in 1905 designed New Place. William Crocker's 700 acre estate in Hillsborough was one of the earliest Italianate Gardens in California. A formal garden surrounded the house, designed by Lewis P. Hobart and there were park lands planted with pine and oak specimen trees. A balustrade gravel terrace overlooked a lawn with pools and jet fountains. A stone foot bridge crossed the natural canyon which runs through the property, which also had a palm garden, tree ferns and Russian Maples. Mrs. Crocker was a horticulturist and the seeds from the stone pines came from Hadrian's Villa.
New Place was purchased by the Burlingame Country Club in 1954 and still has notable garden features. Imported urns and planted pots decorate the house terrace and a sarcophagus, shown in early photographs, still remains on th south terrace. A birdbath in a small temple stands between two giant Sequoia in the north-eastern part of the garden. A cutting garden is maintained for decorating the club. Modern additions include putting green, croquet court, tennis courts, and a golf and tennis pro shop. In this picture, Irish Yews flank the stairs to the flower garden. This fountain was moved to Huntington Park, San Francisco. It is called Fountain of the Tortoises.
Historic plate number: "16."
Historic plate caption: "California."
