This place is so beautiful and quiet, right in the heart of the city! Near the shops on Selwyn and Park Road Shopping Center, which is where one can get a bite to eat before or after.

Wonderful 2 hour meandering walk thru labyrinth of brick pathways lined with herb garden, rose garden , frog pond, and many water features. Tender history. Fascinating house to tour. Have gone back numerous times. Open limited schedule because manned by volunteers.
