At the Park

Nestled on a hill overlooking Shame Pond and The Grist Mill is a stately Victorian house  built in 1888 named “Bendora”.  Benjamin Bartley and his wife Theodora , the original owners of this home, combined parts of their first names to name their beautiful estate. Asiatic Lilies, Daylilies, Casablanca Lilies, Dahlias, Rose of Sharon, Rhododendrons and Hydrangeas planted in a well-defined border welcome you to the property.  At the end of the driveway, a stone fence frames Rose and Hydrangea bushes. Looking upward, the lawn continues to expand upon its own park- like feel with stately evergreens, conifers and Holly bushes planted in abundance around the landscape. The exquisite wrap-around porch with surrounding flowers and beds of Roses and Hydrangeas create an environment of respite and calm away from the bustling village of yesteryear.
