  • Description


    Hi my name is Sharyn I use to work in the dental industry. We have a lifestyle property which has a beautiful tree lined driveway. Some of our trees are 100 years old. We love the outdoors, cycle rides, walking on the beach, Skiing. We have a large flower garden and big veggie garden. Like to eat fresh food out of our garden a love of good food & wine. We are only 10 minutes from the sea, an hours drive from the mountains. Our neighbours are also lifestyle blocks. You will see and hear the deer roaming on the adjoining property.
    Our place is a slice of paradise being close to the city though in the country.
