This property has a formal entrance, but the surprise happens through a side gate where one enters into a large tranquil garden space that is hidden behind a high fence.

This peaceful side garden has large mature trees that offer shade offset by colourful and coordinated planting underneath.

A large pond is an important part of this garden as is a gazebo amidst the greenery. A discrete sculpture enhances the peaceful feeling of the water and water plants that create a cooling oasis for a hot summer's day.

The large central lawn area gives a feeling of expansiveness not usual in suburban gardens and the deep garden beds flow around this area in a nonformal and relaxing way.

On the other side of the house there is a skillful plantings of Mediterranean plants in the elevated beds beside the driveway and paths, that provide plenty of pollination plants for the beehive nestled in the garden bed

A number of vegie boxes supply the house with summer vegetables and herbs, with numerous seating options to offer a shady reprieve from the sun or a sunny patch on a cooler day.

Some of the proceeds from this opening will be donated to Brighton Rotary.
