Our family holiday home has indoor and outdoor places for dining, entertaining or relaxing by the fire, with an outdoor barbeque area surrounded by a mature garden planted by June featuring rhododendrons, apple trees and vegie gardens planted by Merv and tended by daughter Pamela.
Enjoy the quaint ambience of 45 on Willington where the possibly of a peaceful getaway can come true. Originally built as a holiday and retirement home by June and Merv Coutts, with a combination of old and new recycled materials from Merv's days as a demolition expert, both spending many hours cleaning bricks for the feature double brick walls. Merv's father Alex Coutts' picture is on the wall and flagons and glass bottles are from the family Whittinghams Brewery in Invercargill (closed when prohibition came into force).
