One word – lush.

Sitting 50m back from a busy main road, it’s hard to believe that after walking through the front gate you have suddenly been transported to Bali. Once inside, you realise just how much of a tropical oasis you’ve entered into. Leading up to the front door is access to the pool, finished in a jade coloured tile which references the surrounding greenery, palms and overgrown grasses. If you look to your left there’s a bubbling water feature nestled amongst the ferns. To your right, giant clumps of mixed Gingers and Heliconia’s.

The dense planting in this garden therefore really helps to balance the hard and soft materials. This property features luxury additions like a viewing window into the pool from the movie theatre room, an infinity pool edge, tennis court and fire place; all spaced far enough apart so they command their own presence.
