This minimalist garden adopts linear principles and is themed “green and white with a touch of red”. It features white petunia, white lilies and black velvet pelargonium, with the ambience of courtyards, gazebo and buxus hedging. This 1865 property holds a Heritage A listing and stands alongside the historical cluster known as Hen and Chickens. The protected oaks, ginkgo and pohutukawa add to the unique story.
