Private Brick Terrace

Red bricks are an easy way to add colour to a mostly-green yard.

Homeowners Philip Mitchell and Mark Narsansky returned this classic Chester, Nova Scotia home to its former glory so they could enjoy as a weekend home. Mark likes to garden on the reclaimed-brick terrace, which includes outdoor dining and living areas. An herb garden provides cooking essentials.
