I wrote about Clove Brook Farm on numerous occasions. An Architectural Digest article from a few years back featuring the freshly renovated interiors of an 18th-century Greek revival farmhouse in Millbrook, New York started a cult-like following among design lovers around the world. Its talented owner, potter, ceramicist and award-winning gardener Christopher Spitzmiller has created a special place and has been tirelessly working each year to add to its beauty.?
With help from celebrity gardener P. Allen Smith, fellow design and horticultural royalty Bunny Williams, as well as friend Martha Stewart, Spitzmiller has designed flower gardens worthy of awe. This fall, the Garden Conservancy included Spitzmiller’s gardens on their tour list and hundreds of garden enthusiasts wondered in. I’m guessing they had a hard time leaving. Complete with a dove cote, a pond and pool house, his gardens now grow award-winning dahlias and hydrangeas, while his poultry? have won several medals in local shows. To our delight, Veranda’s holiday issue takes us on a tour of this charming place, all dressed up in winter attire. The following images are from Veranda. Enjoy!
