The house is now divided into three generous living spaces, each with separate access, private bathroom and kitchenette. Each apartment has its own covered veranda and views into the surrounding gardens. The gardens are well maintained with old trees and extensive new plantings. Various fruit trees and vines produce good crops of fruit each year. Birds and bees are attracted to the garden; the Tui and other native birds can be seen and heard every day.
The house is well insulated and centrally heated with a total of nine hot water radiators throughout. The carpets are pure New Zealand wool with woolen underlay. The apartments are very warm in winter, with good ventilation and outdoor living in summer.
All the linen is pure cotton, down or wool. We try to use organic or eco products and recycle all waste.
