A focal interest point for nature lovers is the vast amounts of exotic and uplifting greenery the property encompasses.

The inspiration behind the rear garden seems to be Claude Monet’s Water Lilies. The garden features a red bridge going over a lily pond and a melodious waterfall which looks like a real-life version of his paintings.
