Original features throughout include the craftsman style mantels, clawfoot tub, copper fitted toilet, meat safe, floor to ceiling pantry and coal range. Modern features are a recent added wet floor ensuite and guest room vanity. The deck off the kitchen leads to a sheltered BBQ area with wood fired cooking and areas for seating. Vine covered paths lead through the yard to a single mans hut used as a ventilated dark room equipped with water and power, chock house, gardens and a tree lined entrance to the wetland pond.
