There is something surprisingly modest about olive trees given their noble history and legendary reputation. A symbol of abundance, glory and peace, the olive is undeniably one the most celebrated fruits of all time.
Only after long, elaborate curing processes and marinating do olives acquire their exquisite taste. How this wondrous alchemy - on a par with the transformation of grapes into wine or barley into whiskey - was discovered must contribute in part to the mystery and allure of the olive.
31 Horrocks Street has been cultivated into a sophisticated contemporary home optimising light, privacy and stylish living spaces. Like the allure of the olive trees that greet you in the curated gardens, experiencing this noble home is captivating.
This remarkable residence is located in a premium elevated position on a quiet street and boasts panoramic views of Isaacs Ridge.
