Landscaping

The landscape design preserves centuries-old Valley Oak trees that surround the house, while adding elements of color, charm and texture common to a successful 19th century farmstead. Significant plantings include:

  • A single European Horn Beam tree stands in an island of Dragon Wing Begonias at the winery entrance
  • 80-year-old Sevillano Olive trees surround the estate
  • A forest of River Birch, Weeping Willow, Arbutis, Crimson Queen Japanese Maple and Green Lace Japanese Maple trees stands to the right of the farmhouse, and is traversed by undulating, natural bark pathways
  • A white picket fence with red climbing roses surrounds the house and a basket weave brick entry walk; the walk is lined with Iceberg Tree Roses and red rose arbors adorn the entrances; a collection of antique and heirloom roses compliment the rose gardens
  • 32-foot Canary Palm trees stand at the front and rear of the house
  • Crape Myrtle, Yellow Iris, Nikko Blue Hydrangea, assorted Lilacs, Viburnum, Rhododendron, Wisteria, Mexican Primrose, Ferns and Azaleas add color
  • Golden Aurora Fescue dotted with California Red Poppies and Royal Carpet Alyssum grow along two large paddocks that front the property and are surrounded by a white, three-rail fence
