Perfectly positioned for peace and privacy, the home is tucked discreetly down an 800m driveway. Terraced lawns and three acres of pristine ancient bush come alive with native bird song on fine days. The effect is instantly calming. Complete with all modern conveniences, the interior of this residence exudes a charming old-world feel.

The spacious guest bedroom available and offered here, with its own ensuite bathroom, makes for a cosy retreat.

Solid timber floors and a large wood burner warm the large dining area. The open-plan space also embraces a beautiful, traditional-style kitchen with a generous butler's pantry. High, sarked, Cape Cod-style ceilings create a wonderful sense of space in the living areas. The feeling is enhanced by big bi-fold windows that open to magnificent views of the surrounding lush, native greenery.

    We loved this accommodation - just sorry we couldn't have stayed longer to relax a bit and really enjoy the property. Judy and Mike were excellent hosts and provided excellent accommodation. The room was just beautiful, very clean and very relaxing. Everything we needed was there. The room provided was part of their house with it's own bathroom and separate library/TV room to relax in. Thank you very much for having us and providing a serene haven for our busy weekend. Very much appreciated.
