Looking at this estate is like peering into the past, as trimmed hedges, topiaries and flowering planters inspire thoughts of Old World Europe. Grand archways and grass block pavers are fitting embellishments for the space and make a walk to the backyard feel like a royal experience.

Tree With Pumpkin Trim

This tree gets a cheerful, autumn-ready trim of tiny orange pumpkins.

Formal Garden Rich With Symmetry

To make the main entrance feel even more grand, landscape architect Harold Leidner layered the front yard with symmetrical plants. Thus, as guests cross the steps, they'll stroll past identical hedges, planters and ornamental grasses.

Mansion Entry With Fountain

A fountain bubbles merrily at the entry to this palatial home. For more curb appeal, accents of fruit and vegetables are pretty, unique decor for containers and the wide, front steps.

French Country Estate With Formal Garden

Standing in front of this elegant estate is like peering into the past, as trimmed hedges, blooming flowers and topiaries inspire thoughts of Old World France. A fountain centers the formal garden and carries the eye to the home's main entrance.

Mansion Entry With Fall Decor

This beautiful mansion is ready for fall with orange flowers and steps piled high with pumpkins and squash.

Arch and Swimming Pool

An arched opening beautifully frames this home's posh outdoor space and makes it feel as fun as discovering hidden treasure. A pool house sits at the far end of the patio.

Fire Pit Exudes French Country Style

A cushioned bench wraps around the fire pit, creating an intimate spot for gathering with friends. Meanwhile, the alternating powder blue and cobalt pillows nod to the home's French country style.

Dining Space With Dreamy Stone Archways

Stone archways frame views of the pool and cabana beyond, as well as invite cool breezes to filter inside this loggia. Meanwhile, a white table and chairs both visually lighten the room and allow for entertaining guests.

Outdoor Kitchen With Little Fountain

Stepping beneath the loggia's archways leads guests to a chic outdoor kitchen. Here, a custom table not only allows for dining beneath the stars, but also flows into two water fountains on either side.

Covered Porch and Poolhouse

A comfortable covered porch stretches the length of the pool cabana and is a favorite with guests.

Swing With Colorful Pillows

This swing and its pillows recall stylish oceanside retreats in bold, bright colors.

Backyard Boasts Private Pool, Lounge Area

Smooth stone pavers extend across the backyard, creating a clear path to the pool or lounge. Fire bowls, a cascading waterfall and built-in tanning beds add to the space's luxurious aesthetic.

Blue Planters With LED Lights

Unique LED-lit planters off the porte cochere are a magical addition, especially at night.

Planters, Fire Bowls Brighten Backyard

At night, illuminated pots, fire bowls and dramatic landscape lights transform the backyard into a visual wonder. Grass joints in the pool deck and open views of the sky further the sense of being in the countryside.

Pool With Blue Lighting

At night, the pool glows blue and lends an aura of intrigue to this luxurious outdoor space.

Vertical Garden

A synthetic green wall provides a dramatic vertical garden backdrop.

Loggia Connects Garage to Main House

A covered loggia connects the garage to the main house, as well as teases a view of the rear garden. Blue pottery decorates the breezeway and speaks to the same cobalt-colored tile that lines the pool and fountain.

Romantic Wrought Iron Gate Off Driveway

An iron gate adds to the home's Old World charm, marking the entrance to a porte-cochère and garage. With a floral design in the center, the piece is both raw and romantic.

Front Exterior With Pumpkins

Clipped hedges, orange blooms and collections of squash and pumpkins are ready to welcome fall.
