Great vision has seen the Glazebrooks create an amazing haven amongst the bush. Clever planting has seen them utilising the various aspects of the block, investing in new plants each year that are very well suited to the area. Natural regeneration is now taking place and native fauna has increased as the wetland habitat has improved. The majority of the wetland is protected under a QEII National Trust covenant and has an ongoing wetland restoration project.

Amazing clean water flows through the wetland from the spring source. The Glazebrooks have a well-designed home, complete with triple glazing, on an elevated site that fits in with the surrounding landscape.
