Perhaps Mount Sharon’s crowning glory is its setting, with panoramic view of the Blue Ridge Mountains and the coastal plain, its numerous 250 year old tulip poplar trees, and its ten+ acres of gardens of national and international renown. The gardens, created by the present owners with highly-respected landscape architect Charles J. Stick, feature numerous fountains, pergolas, gazebo, pavilions, and garden statuary, as well as formal and informal gardens inspired by the great gardens of England, France, and Italy. A 20’ by 50’ pool with automatic cover is equipped for year-round use. The gardens have been featured in more than a dozen magazines, newspapers, and books, and have been visited by horticultural, conservation, and preservation groups from throughout the world.
