Farm Retreat

This 400-acre project enhanced the property’s function as a rural farm and accommodated the needs of a young family. As Prime Consultant since 2004, Shadley Associates first created the site master plan and since then has provided full landscape architecture services from design through construction for multiple phases of construction.

Projects have included the installation of a signature entry drive with ornamental farm gates, total renovation and expansion of an abandoned circa-1890 farmhouse, a new guest house, a new swimming pool and pool pavilion, the reconstruction of several farm outbuildings, the reconfiguration and enlargement of the farm’s pond, the realignment of various roads, changes to paddocks and fields, over a half mile of new board fencing, and extensive selective forest clearing and reforestation for strategic viewshed management; all of which improved the farm’s agricultural, wildlife habitat and aesthetic opportunities.
