Excitingly, the impressive garden was designed by painter and sculptor, Josie Martin, who just so happens to be the owner of the house. She created a unique outdoor experience full of little pathways, intimate hidden garden rooms, murals, flowers and vegetables, intentional views of the sea and so much more.
