Wistaria-twirled terraces of sun-dappled stone...
...rustic pergolas of salt-patterned timber...
...would you like to linger here for the afternoon,
with a glass of Pinot Grigio, a nibble of local cheese
and a good book?
Flinders is a little seaside town on the Mornington Peninsula,
much loved by Melbournians as a nearby coastal farming area,
where the rich soils & high rainfall are perfect for vineyards,
cattle & horse studs,
So in an area which grows Mediterranean plants oh so easily,
this garden is positively flourishing.
Being high on the hills above the Bass Coast,
the winds down here can be tenacious
(which I adore, actually)
but creating a central courtyard provides a sheltered retreat.
The house is set amongst 31 acres of rolling green hills,
And from every window...that view...always that amazing view...
A rather idyllic setting for a small farm,
don't you think?
A heavenly rural spot, yet one and a half hours from Melbourne.
Would you like to live here?
