This solar earthen home caters for small workplace groups or small club groups, looking for a values aligned setting. When not catering to these conscious customers or volunteers, a city family uses it for their getaway place, and one live-in resident keeps the whole show on the road (with some help). Sheltered outdoor spaces sit in lush, productive gardens created over twenty years. Founded in ecological design and organic managment by Thereses Gilligan and Dominic Gilligan nee DaPos. The house is situated in a quiet double court, yet just twenty minute walk to the nearest trails, coast lake and safe beaches. Nearest cafe, and shops are a short fifteen minute trail walk . Centre town is another fifteen minutes walk. Full off-street parking for two vehicles (one mini bus). Off-kerb parking for one vehicle. (All pictures will be updated upon full re-launch in late 2022).
