  • About the 28th Street House — Dumbarton Oaks
    warm the new residence looked upon her first visit in 1943 The outdoor space was given over to Beatrix Farrand with the expectation that she would create a sense of privacy and seclusion from the busy intersection of Q and 28 th Streets Farrand recommended the construction of brick walls no higher than 6 feet around the perimeter of the backyard In the front she recommended low brick walls just tall enough to keep the Blisses pet dogs from scampering away In the yard Farrand modified a pre existing design by Rose Greely Her new plan for the garden included an open space for entertaining for which she chose gravel instead of grass In the 1940s Mildred Bliss and Beatrix Farrand wrote a number of letters discussing projects for the backyard including a gazebo an arbor and potential spaces for Ping Pong and lawn tennis After Farrand s retirement Ruth Havey consulted on projects at the Bliss residence Most designs that Farrand carried out in the garden at 28 th Street no longer exist At some point a garage and adjoining building were erected along the south wall of the house filling in the space where Farrand planted low borders
