A delightful one acre Mediterranean style garden designed around three main axis. A series of garden rooms are delineated by plantings including Leighton Greens, Pyrus Manchurian Pears and Westwoods, Italian pencil pines, Smaragds and Flowering Cherries. Hedging plants such as English Box, Lonicera Nitida and Pileata, Green Pillar Pittosporum and Princess of Wales have also been well-utilised in the design. Structural elements reflect the owners’ interest in Italy and France and include two sand-stone terraces, a columned arbour, an archway and sunken garden, a courtyard, a loggia with kitchen, open fire, wood fired pizza oven and finally a two storey round tower with belfry – the red tower reflected in the garden’s name.
Visit the Tour Rouge website for more information about the garden.
Directions: heading east on the King’s Hwy, 1km after the Captains Flat turnoff, turn left into Weetalibah Road, then first right into Meadows Lane.
