In 1879 a young school teacher arrived at Samaria, purchased land, built a house (‘Drumrosie’), married and raised seven children.
He and his wife developed a beautiful garden, and some of their trees — including two magnificent oaks, an Atlantic cedar, a spectacular lemon-scented gum and a cypress — remain as central features in the current garden, part of which is now a 2.6
Tucked away against the slopes of Mount Samaria, the garden has benefited from the love and attention of a number of owners over the years. Purchased 10 years ago by the current owners, the garden has been revitalised and nurtured with new plantings.
The many garden beds include Australian natives, rare plants, perennials, roses and succulents. There are feature stone terraces, an attractive pond area and a potager vegetable garden.
Subtle landscaping, rock walls, meandering paths and lawn areas offset the colourful garden beds, while the sheltered position ensures protection from storms and frosts.
