Anselmo's Garden was born out of the owner's need to have a place for solace and requiescence at the end of a busy day as a doctor. How it was created is a reflection of Dr. Anselmo Tronco's temperament: unhurried, laid-back, and creative.
Stoneworks, plants, wood, and decors were chosen out of an impulse, and the result was an eclectic blend of the old and the contemporary. The design came out in early mornings when a cup of coffee blended very well with cigarettes.
As the master of the house shifted mood, the garden changed form as well. From lush and forest-like, Anselmo's Garden took a more refined form, inspired by the lines and shapes of bonsai plants, blending seamlessly with graceful structures and a lagoon-like pond.
Formerly a private garden, it is now open for those who would like to have an intimate place for family and friends during special occasions.
