THE LEWIS HOUSE AND GARDENS

Home of Lea Lewis

120 South Oak Lane

Sam Lewis’ vision for a French home with architectural gardens has come alive through his hard work and the efforts of his wife in his memory. Lewis trained as a registered forester and developed his appreciation for trees, shrubs and their use in designing outdoor spaces.

The Lewis Gardens are designed in patters and for visual effect. You can walk on designed paths bordered by boxwoods, enjoy the pebble ponds, meander through the walled rose garden with water features and magnolias, the labyrinth, lawn Anglaise and travel the beech tree lined drive. Tree lovers will also recognize Hornbeams, White Pines and Bald Cypress. Before you go inside, look up at the house’s Genoise brick decorations.

Then step into this French country house with its ten foot ceilings, Rumsford fireplaces, exquisite tile and other special details including mahogany doors, and limestone and quarter sewn white oak floors. Antiques, art, decorative paint finish walls and fascinating collectibles adorn every interesting square foot of the Lewis house.
