A Creative Overhaul

Originally the farm was part of a larger property, Coringa Station. Our place being one of the Lands & Survey blocks that was sub-divided off during the 1980’s – a simple managers house. The previous owner planted gums and wattles, some which still exist. The Lands & Survey small, standard, brick house has had a major re-vamp. Richard used his creative and resourceful streak to overhaul the house to suit our family growing up. The young garden is currently embedding itself around the recently established home and trees.

Clean cut views to the nor’west are favoured ahead of shelter. The large useable family lawn for active teenage children links the main home to the Shearer’s Quarters (Airbnb holiday accommodation). The home was built to blend in with the natural elements and setting. The future intention is for completed garden to be park-like and simple.

People who stay here, share that they enjoy the peace and tranquility that the property provides and the way the house nestles itself into its surroundings and the delightful morning birdsong.
