ABOUT THE HOUSE.
Our large and comfortable house in Berry is on 2.5 acres.Originally part of a dairy farm located minutes from Berry village. The house is built of recycled bricks from an old country gaol. For two years it has been under renovation (probably we'll always be doing something!) but now are able to offer three large bedrooms, two lounge rooms, fireplace, pool, relaxing courtyards, large refractory dining table and dining area with frenchdoors opening out to sunny verandah or shady poolside areas for guests to enjoy. We have a small creek running thru the property with platypus, fresh eggs from our chickens, a peacock and peahen and sometimes even some little ones wandering around. We also share the house with friendly dog and a lazy cat.
We welcome you to share our place. We are open to new people, ideas and experiences. We aim to be helpful and friendly without intrusion.
