What the owner has loved about living in this beautiful home:
'My daughters have created their own fairy garden out the side of the home and leave notes for the fairies to read. Many lovely afternoons have been spent collecting twigs and pebbles for the fairies.'
'I LOVE my shower, on sunny days I like to open up the door onto the garden and it feels like I’m on holiday!'
'My husband and I were married in the front garden. It was around this time of year and the roses were out. We suspended freesias all around the Verandah, so the smell of freesias mixed with roses always reminds me of that special time'.
