AUGUSTA'S HOME AT THE GROVE - FINAL SELECTION


I have seven homes created by Cierra Anatine, owner of  KISMET.   I love them all and have used them on my private land for several years.

I decided to place the Ashthorne Manor on my property at The Grove and give it a comfortable, European makeover.  I added the garden conservatory on the side as opposed to the original location at the back.

The landscaping is in a state of disarray, but I'm hoping it will be completed by Thanksgiving.

Today i'm showing the grand view.  You are welcome to visit - it is a Work in Progress!
