If ever there were an example of being a good steward in the long term preservation of a home, it’s embodied in 20 Stone Gate and the family's ownership of this property for almost 90 years. Understated in its elegance and situated in a stunning garden setting, this 1926 Harrie T Lindeberg designed house is a smaller version of the tall-roofed French Renaissance style of both the nearby Wyldwoode estate and of the 1928 Onwentsia clubhouse. In recent years architecturally appropriate and historically sensitive improvements were designed by architect Tom Rajkovich with landscaping designed by Hoerr Schaudt Landscape Architects including a newer pool and related development sited to the southeast of the house.
