In 1974, Sarah and Gary Milek created a lifestyle around plants and fine art, inspired by the natural beauty of the woodland plants and wildflowers that surround them. Sarah, an accomplished herbalist and horticulturist, draws on her background in art and dance to design lyrical floral displays throughout the grounds.A world-renowned painter, Gary studied art at Syracuse University, Boston Museum Art School and Rijks Museum in Amsterdam where he perfected the technique of egg tempera and gold leaf.
