The old meets the new. The architecture that flows from from the origional homestead into the new living and kitchen area is simply flawless. I just cannot talk about this place highly enough but the spacious design and the panoramic views from inside and outside the property are amazing. Watching the sunset go down over the hills with a refreshment while a kangaroo hung around is what did it for me. I’ll be back for sure.
