The superb Lockington Gardens by the The Man of Maples

On a busy tourist route from Lower Wilmot to Back Road, is this recognised landmark, 'Lockington Garden', on 3.838 hectares with 1.21 hectares; (approx 3 acres) extensively crafted into a flourishing garden of grace and beauty. The ever flowing Braddons Creek with its double waterfall splits the property into two different styles; one side is natural bush with walking tracks,the other a glorious garden with residence and sheds. Planted throughout are many rare and valuable Conifers, Japanese Maples, Rhododendrons and deciduous azaleas plus arrangements of selective bulbs. The garden has been a lifelong love and passion, through the hybridizing of Rhododendrons; with only 132 varieties out of the 200 planted having names, leaving over 60 plus varieties of other Rhododendrons present for new owners to name. Many of the Rhododendrons have been named after people, such as 'Elissa' and 'Peggy Charlotte'. The collection of some 300 Japanese Maples, 5 varieties, (some weeping) vary in age and sizes, some are nearing 50 years, extend throughout the garden.There are 200 Conifers (some Junipers) throughout, 75 of which are rare collectables of different size and ages. The annual rainfall of some 1450mm (57 inches) is nature's way in this area and is sufficient with no further watering required. The main residence is centrally located within the garden, the dwelling consists of a kitchen, dining, living, double bedroom and ensuite; there is also a laundry with a verandah around the home, providing accessibility to all areas. The home is heated by a free standing Saxon wood heater centrally placed and a Mitsubishi inverter for those cool winter evenings.The kitchen, dining and living areas are open plan.The interior walls and ceiling are insulated. Water is pumped from the creek and stored in two concrete 5,000 gallon tanks; one for the home,the additional is a back up. There is a bungalow, glass house and a double garage with workshop all within walking distance from the home. For the enthusiastic gardener the hard work is completed, requiring only a caretaker or someone who wishes to take this project to the next level. Perhaps those looking for an exhibition garden could build tea rooms, or accommodation (STCA) as there is ample of room for expansion. Property Code: 329
