Burlington, Vermont

Henry Holt, the publisher built this Georgian Revival style mansion as a summer home in the late 1890‘s. Holt was the founder of the publishing empire known today as Holt, Rhinehart and Winston. Frederick Law Olmsted the renowned landscape architect came to Burlington to make a topographic survey of the land and to design the site master plan. After years of neglect our client purchased the estate in 1997 to renovate for their private full-time residence. The challenge was to integrate the proposed program requirements into the underlying integrity of the original plan. New site elements to be incorporated included a new formal entry drive, auto court, service entrance, breakfast terrace, large formal terrace for entertaining, cutting garden, as well as a new swimming pool and terrace.

Also a nice design for the retaining walls, but I'm guessing this type of stuff is quite expensive.
