Walnut Street Modern Restoration
Location: Brookline, MA
Status: Construction 2022-2023
This historic home in the heart of Pill Hill is currently in construction renovating the landscape to create various garden spaces supporting the outdoor lifestyle of its owners. A small, heated pool provides space to swim and train year-round adjacent to the restorative rock garden with new fieldstone walls, fountain and lush plantings. A pergola, kitchen and lounge area anchor the opposite side of the property with a custom water feature and fire table. The landscape at the historic front of the house is enhanced by extending the stone walls that match the original building, re-introducing the historic front stairs and providing native plant material throughout the property bringing this important parcel to a new standard of modern outdoor living within an historic context.
