One of the oldest properties in Hogsback,
rich in history
The original thatched homestead, inspired by the shape of a horseshoe was built in the 1950’s. The original owner hailed from Scotland near St. Andrews and named the property after an old castle ruin nearby called Dunaverty.
The rather dilapidated house was bought in 2005 and lovingly restored. It was utilised as a happy residential home until a tragic moment in 2013 when it was destroyed by a fire. The ruins have been brought back to life by establishing a beautiful rose nursery, uniquely designed in the shape of a rose bloom. A large variety of rose bushes are available for sale to the public.
In addition, a prosthetic business has been established on the property offering rehabilitation services within tranquil surroundings.
