Oliver Ranch is a singularly personal and endlessly engaging experience.
In 1985, documentary filmmaker Pamela Page and husband Igor Jozsa, an architect with more than 40 years experience in high-end residential projects, moved into a cottage on their eight-acre property in Bethel. The cottage was on the small side, and they decided that the barn on the property, built in 1890, would make an ideal living space.
Most gardens typically suffer from the late-summer doldrums, but September usually ushers in a new lease on life. Early fall is an ideal time to plant varieties that will add lasting interest and take your gardens well past the first deep frost.
It’s safe to say that most modernist architects prefer to see their residential creations anchored on flat planes of grassy lawn, but landscape designers often have additional ideas that can enrich a project further.
With corn as “high as an elephant’s eye,” it’s time to start thinking about cool-weather, edible crops, even if all you can bear to maintain is a beat-up whiskey barrel (perfect for arugula, by the way). “My favorites this time of year are the classics,” says April Gonzales, a Southampton-based garden designer who tends a sizable vegetable patch at her home.
In the late 1970s, when Walter Channing first laid eyes on some property along Scuttle Hole Road in Bridgehampton, it reminded him of a large farm that had backed up to his family home in Dover, Massachusetts. As a little boy, he would explore the fields and climb the trees on his neighbor’s land, always thinking of it as a giant playground. The prospect of re-creating this childhood wonderland on the East End of Long Island was compelling, and he began to acquire acreage in a very deliberate way.
