Kingsport Formal Gardens
Set on a pristine lot within the old neighborhoods of Kingsport, this old family home was in need of an update inside and out. A new addition to the house was sited to minimize the change in appearance from the street, while creating an intimate kitchen courtyard for the new owners to enjoy as their main exterior living space. An existing formal courtyard was planned to be refreshed with new plantings. The master bedroom suite features a low stone wall that separates it from the main lawn and living spaces. Within the private garden of the master suite, a knot garden and rose garden provide quiet reflecting spaces for the owners. A bluestone terrace runs the length of the rear garden, connecting several interior spaces with the main lawn.
