The Chestnut Hill Retreat is a beautiful residence located minutes from Boston.  The entry drive leads to a radiant heated granite courtyard.  The porphyry stone sets were individually hand laid in a multiple fan pattern. 


The plunge pool doubles as both a decorative element and a usable spa.  The landscape walls were constructed of split faced Connecticut granite and capped with complimentary Atlantic Green granite.  Perrenial gardens border the lawn and house areas.  Landscape Architecture by Morgan Wheelock, Inc.
