Entranceway-A Sense Of Anticipation

In looking over THE ENTRANCE TO THE FIRST HOUSE Richard comments that many times a house of this size and a garden of this size has a grand overpowering entrance. But, this one is simple. And, that was by design. Hunton likes gardens to unfold, he likes to build mystery. The surprises come later. But he wants it to be interesting at the same time, he wants it to be unfolding and revealing as time goes on, or as the stroll through the garden goes on. Richard sees that here, he can't even see the house from the entrance. Again, that was by design. Hunton wanted the house to be revealed at the end of the drive, as opposed to seeing it as one drives up. It was purposeful in this garden. And, it creates a sense of anticipation. As the guys entered from the street Richard noticed the entrance which was cozy, it was intimate but as he enters the view is incredible. In Maui they're fortunate to have spectacular views from the slopes of Haleakala. As one is looking down at the coast one sees, what is called, the Isthmus and then the West Maui Mountains, then Lana'i and other Islands such as Molokai. This all makes a stunningly beautiful backdrop for an exciting garden.
