Dear Richard and Jenny,

I've listed some points that we have noted over the past 18 months.


  • The aspect is good for the morning sun.
  • The house has a wonderful open space
  • An amazing colour palette and decor
  • I love the tiles - off white, easy clean
  • The front verandah, courtyard and gardens compliment the simplicity of the house design
  • The floors and bathrooms are easy to clean and care for
  • The kitchen area is a lovely colour and it has a good sized bench
  • Interesting feature wall with well designed lighting to highlight
  • Colour scheme - great for interior design and accommodates colour ascents in my furniture
  • Front veranda - simply pine - pleasing to the eye
  • We love the bagged brick - brick rendering and soft use of colours, easy on the eye
  • Complementing courtyard walls and side fence
  • Great to have height in the garage


Back courtyard wall is magnificent - reflects the changing colours of the day, colours are likened to a persian rug in afternoon and dusk the garden - easy to care for and plants that have faired well in dry conditions - low maintenance and mass planting, this planting is minimalist - not traditional, certainly modern but still has lots of appeal. The garden has had a real response to environmental factors. Subtle toning of blended native and all drought tolerant plants. A great place to commune with nature and enjoy the quiet things of life.

Gumtree homes have given us not a house but a home. Our eight children love visiting us and we instantly felt the home reflects our personality. We don't feel like we have had a run-of-the-mill home built, we feel like it is an individual design and complements the environment and bush surrounds. We are forever grateful for my mother, Mrs O'Malley's choice in two Gumtree Homes, from you.
