Take an unforgettable journey to yesteryear at beautiful Harrow, a private home and a grand residence. This charming homestead was once the centre of a small village with a collection of outbuildings, workers cottages and a school. Harrow is still very much a working property today.
The rambling picturesque gardens cover 10 acres featuring a 50 metre rose arbour, waterlily-filled lake, extensive garden beds, fascinating trees and shrubs and a fish pond. Robert Ramsay, the English owner, had the impressive home constructed in the 1870s mainly of hoop pine and red cedar with large rooms and an arched hallway of polished pine and cedar panelling. The home covers 100 square metres with wide verandahs on three sides. You can imagine the original residents sitting on the verandah with a cup of tea (or something stronger) on a warm afternoon as they enjoy a fresh, cool breeze.
COST: $10 per person (Devonshire teas also available for $5)
