Sited on 1800 meters of land backing onto Dogstream Reserve and forest. Surrounded by native bird song, you'll feel relaxed the minute you walk through the door.

Very private sunny section with two outside dining areas, and a great spot for when it gets too hot. The two living areas can be divided off to allow separate spaces. Wonderful views over forest reserve, large wonderland of mature trees for the children to make huts and run free . Access to 'Dog Stream Reserve' and Forest cycle and walking tracks from the bottom of the garden.
