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, up a hidden path behind the house is a rhododendron and camellia walk. The 2nd level, has long perennial rose beds (mostly David Austin), shrubs and trees - a park-like setting. The 3rd level has a series of small ponds surrounded by a garden and a newly planted Dogwood and Bromeliad drift. The 4th and last level is devoted to natives that don't grow naturally in our area, some rare. Walk along that level and return to the top through the Hosta Walk, just one of several options which mean you can return a different way than what 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.
Garden Size: 2.5 acres allow at least an hour for your visit.
