Artwork includes abstract, folk, textiles and sculptures. Water views from a home on 3 sides disremember Indigo Lake and a James River, and endless gardens cover some-more than dual acres with walking trails in a park-like setting. A four-level pool with wooden overpass is surrounded by plantings of azaleas, dogwoods, camellias, magnolias and rhododendrons.
