Home to Permaculture pioneers, Ross and Jenny Mars, this is the home they carefully designed, constructed and planted for themselves, so you know it’s so much more than a garden. It’s an abundant living pantry and an insurance policy for the future. Chock full of a diverse mix of exotic, native and edible perennials, including 20+ varieties of heritage apple trees alone, this property is a rare find for one lucky buyer. It’s also the first built home in the Witchcliffe Ecovillage to come up for sale, albeit regretfully, due to an unfortunate change in family circumstances.

While devastated to be losing Ross and Jenny from our community, Village Homes Realty is thrilled to bring a property of this calibre to market as it perfectly embodies the Ecovillage sustainability ethos.
