Worshippers of formal gardens will be in heaven, and even casual nature lovers will adore the 210 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. Early spring is particularly beautiful, when the tulips and daffodils are in bloom. Step inside the property's gorgeous, Charles II-style 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.
