Sunlight on the garden

The home built for Van de Velde is an art deco gem sitting in delicate harmony with the formal gardens and perfectly positioned to take in sweeping views of the Jamison Valley.

Words to walk with:
From The Sunlight on the Garden by Louis MacNiece
“The sunlight on the garden
Hardens and grows cold,
We cannot cage the minute
Within its nets of gold;
When all is told
We cannot beg for pardon.

Our freedom as free lances
Advances towards its end;
The earth compels, upon it
Sonnets and birds descend;
And soon, my friend,
We shall have no time for dances.”
