Press Release posted 3/15/14 – Creative Arts Group’s 20th annual Art of the Garden tour will take place Sunday, April 13th from 10:30-4:30 pm. Four outstanding residential gardens in the San Marino/Pasadena area will be on display showcasing landscapes as divergent as the homes they adorn.
This year’s tour includes a gated French Regency estate which opens to a parterre garden, lined with 16-foot hedges. A rose arbor with elevated koi pond is situated on one side of the garden while lush, green pathways and 60-year-old grape vines lead to an infinity pool which mirrors the shape of the koi pond and overlooks a stunning view of the Arroyo. A three-story, California colonial home complete with pool house and a lovely, remodeled pool rests on two acres of sprawling gardens with breathtaking views. And a beautiful, two-story Spanish-style home built in 1929 boasts impeccable, manicured gardens in front while intricate, lattice-like brickwork lines the driveway, leading to an intimate entertaining area, including a cozy fire pit and Spanish tiled patio overlooking the pool.
Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 the day of the tour. For more information, call Creative Arts Group at (626) 355-8350 or visit us at 108 N. Baldwin Ave. in the foothill village of Sierra Madre.
