Chestnut Hill Makeover / by Faith Michaels


We came to this house with grand ideas of a new fab terrace, firepit, walkway, driveway, deck and lighting! This glorious old Chestnut Hill home has great bones but needs a big update for a new, young family. The owners loved our ideas, but wanted to proceed slowly. Breaking a large project into sizable bites is a great way to go. The more time I spend on a property, I see how a family uses their landscape. We installed a beautiful meandering bluestone and granite pathway and brightened up the doorway with new plantings. Now on to phase two!
