Age.... House built in 1890 2 eyes and a nose facing east. Altered in 1973.
John and Penny came here in 1936 to a mass of trees willow prunus pines and macrocarpas all to within 3 meters of the house,all had to be cleared and in doing so they completely exposed to the wind ...nothing between them and the southern Alps! It takes at least a generation to have shelter again.
