Burr-wood is set on 2 and a half acres, with developed gardens surrounded by the native bush of the lower Kaimai Ranges. In an elevated situation, we overlook a panorama of land, sea, harbour, and islands from the top of Waihi Beach out to the East Cape. The views are truly spectacular.
The garden consists of four levels with a short gentle slope between each. The house level has cottage-style gardens and a fully functional potager. The 2nd level, has long perennial rose beds (mostly David Austin), shrubs and trees - a park-like setting. The 3rd level has a series has a newly developed water feature and a series of small ponds set within a garden edge and surrounded by an expanse of lawns and a Dogwood and Bromeliad grove. The 4th and last level is devoted to natives that don't grow naturally in our area, some rare (complete with a 58-metre golf hole!). Walk along that level and return to the top through the Hosta Walk, just one of several options that mean you can return a different way than you came. The garden is tranquil and romantic, with each level bounded by native bush giving continuity and birdlife. Once within the grounds, it is like stepping into another world, the only sounds you hear are the native birds and insects as they visit the abundance of blooming flora. This is a garden for all seasons with so much to see and enjoy. There is seating on every level.
Garden Size: 2.5 acres allow at least an hour for your visit.
