Brookby Garden and Fountain

Jeffrey Sytsma - 2006

The porch at the end of the south wing appears the same as when Brookby was built. Two niches on the wall of the porch hold statues. The fountain, with three nymphs at the base, spouts water which overflows into the pool below which is surrounded by flowers. The air conditioner in the second floor window is a modern addition. Shutters that were white in earlier photos have been painted black.
