3. Jane R. and Neil Ross – 501 Kenilworth Drive, Homewood, AL
Designed by: Jane Reed Ross, Landscape Architect – Goodwyn Mills Cawood
Maintained by: “Hands-on” homeowner, with seasonal help from Earthworks Landscape (who also installed the stonework).
Built in 1947, the Ross Cottage and its accompanying garden have continually evolved, but outdoor living space has always been immediately accessible to indoor rooms. Doors often stay comfortably open, inviting guests to move freely from the main rooms to the surprisingly-detailed courtyard garden nestled in the pedestrian-friendly community of Edgewood.
