Miramar: The Historic “Hastings House”, An Artist’s Garden

Decades before Coastside artist Linda Montalto Patterson and her classical musician husband, Richard, bought the historic “Hastings House” in Miramar, cows and a cantankerous bull grazed on the neighbor’s land. At that time eveyrbody had an outhouse and the one nearest the bull was outfitted with a window so that whoever was using the outhouse would know it was safe to come out.

The cows and the bulls are gone and Linda has tamed the land, turning it into a garden paradise by the sea. Here’s a peek at one of the most beautiful gardens i’ve ever seen. And, by the way, the Hastings House is a favorite place for garden weddings. Talk about creating memories,,,
