Berries, vegies, herbs, fruit and flowers for you to pick from the garden (Seasonal, but for example includes strawberries from November to May).

Real open fire places - efficient super hot Rumford design (plus electric heating).

The house itself is a gorgeous antique.  Rooms glow with the polish of wide cedar doorways, black wood and cedar joinery, blackwood floors and Baltic-pine panelling.Separate lounge room , sitting room and dining room.  Space to spread out, work from home. A big deep clawfoot bath stands upon a warm underfloor heated bathroom floor.
