Visit a spectacular garden way above the Hudson River in Upper Grandview, NY. Make your way up the long driveway and arrive at the house and gardens. Giant rhododendrons hug the house and stands of ornamental grasses sway in every direction. In summer, you’ll see big swaths of hydrangeas and black-eyed Susan’s dotting the many perennial beds. Butterfly bushes with purple blooms and lots and lots of roses-mostly crimson, with a few pink ones dotting the beds here and there. A wonderfully inviting 50-by-20 foot swimming pool with a separate spa pool surrounded by gardens designed by Matt Horn. Also visit the folly, a whimsical, ornamental structure on the grounds. Don’t miss the dreamy outdoor kitchen with dramatic views of the Tappan Zee Bridge and on a clear day, the Manhattan skyline if you turn southward.
