Our First Review

Christine Davenport

Review left by Christine Davenport

Recently, I was privileged to be the first visitor at Sedona Summer’s newly certified Art Gallery, Museum, Gift Shop & Gardens on Shady Drive in Harwich, MA. I was completely charmed, finding it to be a colorful, magical place chock full of not only a variety of art forms, but also items of whimsy that lead one to dream. Sedona is gracious and welcoming, and I felt like I could spend days exploring her treasures.
The outdoor space is extraordinary, a work in progress, planned for roaming or as a venue for casual or more sophisticated lunches or dinners, weddings, celebrations, and for parties of all kinds.
In addition, I returned to this incredible space at Sedona’s invitation to “pour paint,” an unforgettable experience guided by a very skilled & patient Sedona.
A visit to this amazing place for guests of all ages is not to be missed! I give it 5+ stars!

Oh Christine, you are too gracious. 
Thank you for this lovely review. 
It was a treasure for me to meet you and to have you be the one to tour the Museum, officially, for the first time!
The "pour painting" was fun, wasn't it? I am glad you had fun trying this way of painting. You were a natural, and you created your first masterpieces!

Dear friends,

These are some basic details about my property at 15 Shady Drive in East Harwich, MA 02645. Please kindly refer to which ones you might include

in any letter you may compose.

I would like to be registered as a place of interest for the community. I hope that my property will be noticed as if it is like a home of historical

value but as an artist’s home with a garden and gallery. My home has been a place where a stranger will drive by, and when I am outside, they

will stop to ask questions and ask to see more. They are interested in learning more about the person, me, who lives there.

Please consider assisting my endeavor with your opinion.

BASIC FACTS:

I was the designer and the general contractor back in 1999. The home was completed for occupancy in January of 2000.

Since then I have continually created art inside and outside.

Inside the home, there is a unique walkway of flagstone and beach stones from Nauset Beach. There is tong and groove wood trim as well as
ship-lap ceilings. There is a one-of-a-kind, two-deck,

custom stairway with vaulted ceiling and balcony living space. There are six beams to giver

the home warmth and a country look. The dining table, breakfast bar, and divider shelf are made of slices of raw tree trunk with exterior tree remaining on the edges that are finished in thick, high gloss polyurethane. All of the floors are of wide white pine, also finished with high gloss gloss polyurethane.

A side door and an upstairs window have stained glass.

There are three bedrooms and two baths. A garage, two stories, and a greenhouse areattached.

As for the outside, many art pieces have been created. There is a nine-foot Native American Chef, a seven-foot sea serpent, three spiral metal 
sculptures,  and a stockade fence with colorful

glass marbles inserted into the pickets for a sparkling effect when the sun shines through.  And

that is just a few of the highlights of art to enjoy!

There are numerous plants and flowers for every season. It is a home with art and gardens throughout. This is a garden of paths with cozy sitting 
areas at every bend. There are lands featured, too.

There is castle land, fairyland, Zenland, and Indian lands. There are outdoor rooms, so to s

peak. There is the Greek room, the black room, and a retreat tent. There is also an arboretum covered with three types of grapes. This arboretum covers a long table that seats 12 people comfortably.

At night the home and gardens are saturated with thousands of colorful lights of all varieties.

At one entry point into the garden, there is a purple gate and trellis welcoming you. Then there is the 25-foot-long Feng Shui, and artsy pathway that continues to bring you along.

Another entry point is the "Rosy Path" flanked by two, three-foot-tall, faux strawberry ice cream cones.

It truly is a magical place that everyone should come and see.
