Driving into ‘Shirley’ there is a sense of intrigue, with its tree-lined driveway opening into a lush garden, an oasis with its expansive lawns, mature trees and spectacular private lake.
‘Shirley’ extends over six acres of garden, offering sweeping views of the Monaro Plains. The garden ties in to the landscape with magnificent trees extending out into the paddocks.
Nurtured by three generations of passionate gardeners, John and Sally-Ann Cottle have continued to enhance the splendid grounds. Paul Bangay (one of Australia’s leading landscape designers) has been integral to re-designing the garden – incorporating John and Sally-Ann’s love of European design.
A garden that invites you to explore, it will take hours to imbue with its formal parterres, ponds and water features and pathways leading to secluded areas.
