Garden's Sale Postponed
Posted by Charlie Golestani on Jul 27, 2012 - 5:53:40 PM

BEL AIR—The once uncertain fate of UCLA’s Carter Japanese Garden is a bit more secure after a Superior Court judge intervened to stop the sale of the garden Friday, July 27.

The judge granted a preliminary injunction against the sale of the Hannah Carter Japanese Garden and the mansion adjacent for which bids were scheduled to be opened on August 15.

In May, Carter’s family filed suit in an effort to halt the sale of the garden, which was gifted under the pretense that it would never be sold to a private entity.

But a separate Superior Court ruling blocked a hold on the sale. The more recent injunction is expected to allow the matter to be settled in a formal trial in the near future.

Former UC Board of Regents chair Edward Carter paid for the construction of the 1.5-acre garden in 1964, while the neighboring house was donated and later occupied till 2006 by Hannah Carter after her husband’s death.

But with rising maintenance costs and a marked drop in attendance, UCLA gave the go-ahead for the garden’s sale in March of this year. The university listed the garden at $5.7 million, with the house going for $9 million in February

Opponents of the sale objected to the university’s dispersion of pieces and equipment they claimed were instrument to the garden’s continued aesthetic appeal and survival, without safeguards guaranteed by the new owner for the garden’s benefit.
