A townhouse where you will find not just a
garden but a sanctuary – a world of flowers, pergolas of roses and wisteria and peace.
It is abundant in variety and colour and an example of how clever design can create a tranquil garden in a very small space.
The owners’ vision has taken a neglected
garden and returned it to its 1946 design of fruit trees, vegie patch and beautiful flowers, and ubiquitous garden shed. This plan also reflects the current growth of gardening for food, enjoyment and improving properties.
Wonderful beginnings for the garden to
flourish in the future.
Another town house using the space quite
differently. The street view is a mass of annuals and perennials framing a manicured lawn.
At the back are the edibles, fruit and citrus
trees, berries, vegetables, herbs and flowers all sitting easily side-by-side. Life-sized bronze by George Andrews waiting at the door.
Glenholme’s 1.5 acre garden surrounds
an Historic Places Trust registered villa and features 100 year old oak trees, a variety of maples, camellias, rhododendrons, hostas and an organic vegetable garden.
Landscaping features include a grass tennis court and a Japanese influenced rock swimming/spa pool area.
A passion for gardening is evident. Go
down the driveway to a semi-formal front
garden. Roses abound for the enthusiast.
The sweeping back garden blends trees,
seating areas and cool garden nooks to
A great place for a picnic.
It also has a museum which is full of yesteryear memorabilia.
A garden of rooms. Don’t stop at the front
gate. There is quite a surprise around
the back. A lovely water feature, a big
vegetable garden fruit trees, grapes and
hens, with plenty of colour in perennials
