It’s been a busy month for Stacy Bass.
First, Gardens at First Light — her book on 12 exceptional gardens — was published.
Now the Wall Street Journal has turned its lens on the talented photographer’s home.
A real estate section “Inside Story” describes the waterside home’s initial attractions to Stacy and her husband Howard in 1996: the constantly changing landscape, and the fact that from the property they could see the home where her parents lived when her father died a year earlier.
It was a “nondescript,” 4,500-square-foot, 5-bedroom spec home. They offered $925,000, just below the asking price.
Since then they’ve done 4 renovations — including a gut one with Peter Cadoux Architects.
The WSJ piece offers details about every aspect — including, of course, Stacy’s 3 pocket gardens. Each features a unique sculpture, framed by boxwood hedges.
