The house is set amidst splendid woods and farmland and is approached from the Frederick Road through a mile of woods.

The garden is directly back of the house and follows the original simple form of the first lay-out of the ground. The flowers have bloomed year after year in the same square beds which form a hollow square in the center of the lawn, directly on line with the door of the house. The openings of the squares are flanked by superb box trees. There are traces of a wide brick walk which once led from the house straight through the garden.
