Waratah has a story to tell. It was in the early 1980’s that the Smith family of 7 decided to leave their home in Sydney to move to Coffs Harbour. At the time the family of were living in the Blue Mountains and operated a successful nursery and landscaping business in the village of Lawson. Brian & Margaret dreamed of a sea change with the opportunity to enjoy warmer weather and a more relaxed lifestyle. They purchased a 5-acre property in Bonville and commenced plans to build their new home.
With their background in horticulture and landscaping Brian and Margaret could see the enormous potential of this land. Their vision was of a botanical garden including many exotics from around the world. A mountain vista would provide the perfect backdrop to this majestic estate. Their legacy is preserved in a most beautiful garden with mature trees, shrubs and many fruiting species. The layout incorporating formal garden beds, fruit tree orchard, vegetable garden, serpentine drive and hedges, provides many private spots to sit and reflect on a good life surrounded by natural beauty. The gardens are home and sanctuary to many native birds and amphibians.
This lovely property now awaits the next chapter to, be written by its next owners…
