We invite you to come and explore our back yard and gardens here at 10 Fitch, which is beautiful in every season from spring when everything is fresh, green, and new with red buds adding a burst of color in vibrant shades of pink and rose, into summer as the perennial beds come alive with a rainbow of colors and textures, and our Koi; Buttercup, Lemon Drop, Sunset, Princess, Nemo, Oreo, Buddy, Angel, Hershey, Lucky, Coffee, Groucho, & Lipstick swim happily beneath the shade of the water lilies in the pond, and then in Autumn frost sparkles on everything in the early morning sunlight as it filters through the bright gold, yellow, and crimson trees overlooking the back of the property and finally, their naked branches in winter cast long, dark shadows across the pure white blanket of glittering snow.

The Secret Garden at the back of the property was landscaped by a Cornell University student in the 1920s and is a favorite spot for deer and our two resident ground hogs, Chubby & Chunky. Stretching the length of the house and facing the Secret Garden, our veranda & deck overlook the Koi pond and are the perfect place for breakfast on warm summer mornings or to just sit and relax any time of day.

In the spring, fall, and on cooler summer nights the fire pit in the center of the veranda is often lit and is a great spot to gather and socialize over a glass of wine or mug of hot cocoa.
