Gardens, but no grass, in Port Washington
A 1973 contemporary home in Port Washington, on the market for $995,000, boasts Japanese gardens covering the entire property. Jorge Carias Barrera of J.C. Landscaping in Port Washington designed the 99-by-98-foot parcel without a blade of grass.
The interior of the house was modified with an Asian aesthetic. The master bedroom, which showcases a custom-made, built-in beechwood king-size bed with wall shelving, is separated from the living room by a shoji screen-influenced glass block wall. A small Japanese garden was placed underneath the skylight in the corner of one of the home’s 3.5 baths.
Other features include three bedrooms, an eat-in kitchen, a granite and beechwood fireplace in the living room, wood floors throughout, an attached, two-car garage plus a backyard deck. It also comes with beach rights.
