Outside

"The Green House" stands well back from this tree lined road with the driveway passing through the front gardens and leading to the garage. These gardens are mature and lush giving a sense that you could be in the country rather than in town.

The principal gardens are extensive with rolling lawns and architectural shrubs and trees framing the most beautiful coastal views.

At the far end of the gardens there is a Cedar wood greenhouse which sits next to a productive kitchen garden and a number of fruit trees. There is even a pergola adorned in Grape vine. As you walk back towards the house borders heave with an abundance of summer perennials and the deep scent of a great garden.
