    We are a couple with a 10 year old daughter. We moved from Wellington to a beautiful villa on 25 acres in Carterton. It has established fruit trees and vegetable garden. We love animals and have a few horses, cattle and sheep, a pony for our daughter, 2 cats, 2 dogs and some hens. We also have a pool which is usually used from October to April.
