Snowhill Road, Gisborne

Patrick helped to develop plans for this new homestead, designed by Andy Coltart, and cut into a hillside site.  Earthworks extend a level circular lawn right around the house and provided a well-defined outline to the garden.  Smaller beds around the building along with a courtyard and pool area are well contained and fairly formal.  The wider gardens handle level change by wrapping around the level lawn and provide for informal plantings well clear of the new home.  The house elevation and clear straightforward setting enables wide sweeping views over the surrounding and distant landscape.
