Welcome to # 23 Lenox Place, a grand Edwardian-style home designed by renowned architect Guy Mariner. Built in 1904, the three-story house features restrained elements that were, at the time of construction, a major deviation from the over-opulent Beaux Arts period that was coming to an end. Along a private street in a coveted neighborhood, No. 23 is one of twenty-three homes that were built between the years of 1903 and 1906. Its most recent owners, Dr. Coy and Rachel Fitch, made this their home for the last quarter of a century, where entertained friends and family, as well as gathered with colleagues and community leaders to raise money for civic causes that were important to them. Now, take a deep breath and enjoy your step back in time, while each designer brings you aesthetically to the present.

Masson brought to horticulture more than 400 species of South African plants such as the king protea, geranium, cineraria, calla lily, bird of paradise, red-hot-poker, Agapanthus and Amaryllis belladonna. He deserves many thanks for his contributions to our garden world!
