270 Nettleton Hollow Road
This New England estate, which spans 54 acres just outside the quaint town of Washington, Connecticut, comes with a formal parterre garden that stuns. The elaborately-designed hedges surround a limestone fountain and sundial. It all makes for an impressive backyard for the classically-designed brick home, listed for $6.5 million.
40 Beverly Park
This insane Beverly Hills mega-mansion, designed in the French Chateau-style, sits on two acres of meticulously landscaped gardens and lawns. Hedges, flowers and trees surround the seemingly endless outdoor amenities, which includes a swimming pool, reflecting pool and tennis court. All that lush greenery is best enjoyed from the covered dining terrace. The whole shebang is priced at $39.995 million.
29 Wood Road
If you’re more interested in edible gardens, look no further than this Westchester County, New York, home that’s situated on four self-sustaining acres. Besides the formal parterre garden, you’ll find raised bed vegetable gardens, a greenhouse, a large strawberry garden and mature fruit orchards. This delicious garden getaway costs $2.85 million.
4455 Harris Trail NW
The elaborate gardens at this Atlanta, Georgia, estate were inspired by Versailles. Pathways wind between the curving hedges, while the massive in-ground pool looks out at perfectly-trimmed treetops. It’ll cost you $4.75 million to pretend like you’re royalty in such an esteemed green space.
15380 SW 248th St.
Perhaps this Homestead, Florida, property doesn’t boast a garden so much as it does an insane expanse of greenery and palm trees over 20 acres. Towering palms frame the main house, two log cabins, a tranquil lagoon with cascading waterfalls and two separate swimming pools. Oh, and don’t forget the five-acre lychee farm, plus 2.5 acres of avocado fields. It’s asking $10.9 million.
189 Further Lane
A shingle-style home in the Hamptons is surrounded by three acres of manicured lawns and gardens. While lush plantings frame the 55-foot heated pool — complete with a waterfall — as well as an in-ground hot tub, pathways and bridges lead you to quiet enclaves that feel closer to a secret garden. The property is asking $14.995 million.
774 Hollow Tree Ridge Road
A long, tree-lined drive leads you to this brick Georgian home in Darien, Connecticut, which has a backyard garden to die for. Flowers, shrubs and trees form in a circular pattern around a fountain, then the land opens up over six acres. The property, priced at $7.25 million, even includes its own orchard.
New York City Townhouses
Who says city homes can’t have amazing outdoor spaces? It’s possible — but it’s going to cost you. Two Upper East Side townhouses — asking price for the combined property is $24 million — are connected by a sprawling 74-foot, two-tiered landscaped garden with its own swimming pool. Paving makes this an ideal spot for outdoor partying, or just an escape from the frenzy of NYC outside.
13400-13450 Anderson Valley Way
The home in Boonville, California, has been owned for many years by the director of the San Francisco Botanical Garden. To no surprise, the sprawling yard is full of earthly delights, from cacti to a sculpture garden to raised planting beds. A deck from the humble abode overlooks the diverse variety of plantings. The price for this charming enclave complete with expert gardening? $1.349 million.
18 Ualei Place
Indoor and outdoor harmony is key at this modern Makena, Hawaii, home asking $8.75 million. So it’s no surprise that special attention was paid to tropical landscaping across the one-acre parcel, with flowers and palms surrounding the infinity edge pool, hot tub and waterfall. You never have to step foot outside the estate to feel lost in the Hawaiian wilderness.
