TO PEAR-FECTION BY CHERYL HAMMER
A formally clipped bay hedge and conifers reflect the garden owner’s penchant for Mediterranean plants.
A garden is a very personal space and none more than at “Findon House” where the grounds have evolved to cater for at least three family generations, a life long passion for dance and an ever growing love of gardening. Daphne
surrounded by a deciduous pear orchard as a hindrance to her garden, but has instead embraced the backdrop and created magnificent European style grounds full of spectacular rooms and features. The outdoor spaces at the Turnbull’s property at Ardmona in the Goulburn Valley, have developed over the past 37 years to cater for a family of four children and now grandchildren, Daphne’s ballet students and a number of open days for charities and public functions. Orchardist, Ross Turnbull and his then young English born wife, moved onto the orchard in 1971 so Ross could be closer to his work. By Daphne’s own admission, the garden has not always been a passion or first priority but as her interest in the garden grew so too did the breathtaking spaces that now embrace the family home. Early on the decision was made to maintain a large lawn area with shady trees at the back of the home, which soon became the children’s main playground, where many a cricket and football match has been played.
â€œThe front garden was quite small at that stage and easy to manage but gradually I developed an interest in roses and began introducing them into the garden with perennials,â€? Daphne says. Today, the rambling garden over more than three hectares boasts thousands of roses in many different shades of red, orange, pink and white. â€œRoss says he doesnâ€™t want to know how many there are as he is usually the one to prune them,â€? Daphne laughs. The dainty soft mauve tones of â€˜Blue Moonâ€™- chosen because it is her fatherâ€™s favorite - is matched with lavender and other softly colored perennials in the back garden, where low box hedging has been introduced to give some structure to the otherwise free flowing style of planting. A timber alcove seat built at the back of a large bird aviary is the perfect spot to enjoy a view to the bottom of the lawn where a channel provides a natural water feature and helps blend the garden with the surrounding pear trees.

“This is where my love of dance and my creativity in the garden come together,” Daphne says. Symmetrically placed cypress trees tower over this part of the property. A formally clipped bay hedge and conifers reflect the garden owner’s penchant for Mediterranean plants. “I introduced the cypress after a trip to the south of France and Italy. I recognised that the Mediterranean style plants could fit into my garden. “My interest in plants tend to come in waves but I like the European style. I think it best suits the fact we live in a deciduous pear orchard”. With that said Australian natives have not been ignored and a stand of gum trees line the front perimeter of the property and native shrubs such as wystringia and grevillia are thriving around a pond. A striking 10 year old Ginko tree, a Tulip tree and silver birches also feature. Outside the large east facing kitchen windows a sand pit has been dismantled to make way for a paved herb and vegetable garden providing peppers, artichokes, eggplant and silverbeet as well as sage, basil and parsley. Oak trees are a favorite and in the front garden a majestic specimen grown from an acorn takes pride of place. From here you are drawn through a set of large wrought iron gates to a space created specifically for ballet and dance performances. A path leading to a raised paved patio acts as an entrance to the oval ampitheatre. A pebble filled ‘river’ flows through the lawn and is another example of the amazing attention to detail. Daphne is a world renowned ballet teacher and has hosted a number of performances by her students here, as well as the annual Opera in the Orchard as part of the SheppARTon Festival.
The Turnbull’s gardener of 26 years, Rocky Costa, is always involved in the choice and structure of plants and working closely with Daphne, Rocky has recently built a stone thyme seat and laid patchwork paving at the entrance of a striking tiled water feature, summer house and ornate iron arbor, all built for a family wedding two years ago. It is hard to believe this lavish part of the property was under orchard 12 months prior. And according to the garden lovers it won’t end there. Daphne, Rocky and Rocky’s daughter Louise Costa, of Design by Nature, will all work on the next major addition to the garden. A swimming pool was put in 25 years ago and has been fenced in by climbing roses and drought tolerant plants, but plans are afoot to expand the yard from the pool to the north to add another large area of garden. “We are still working on finer details of the design but it will be different to the rest of the garden. “I just love being creative,” Daphne sighs.

Dairymaid to Developer
BY RHONDA SUTTON
Whilst researching the history of the quaint home, Homescapeâ€™s Rhonda Sutton uncovered the remarkable story of Anne Callaghan and her journey from dairymaid to property developer.
Th This his is hom me, e once owne ned d by b tthe he C Cal alla lagh ghan n ffam amily and now fa aithfully restor ored, r , rema main ns a le lega ga acy y tto o ou ourr ea early pi pion onee e ring wom om men.
A home in central Echuca is the legacy of a pioneering woman who narrowly escaped death from a spear and, perhaps more dangerously, took on the famous Henry Hopwood and won. Old newspaper articles about the house, which was built in 1902, indicated it was owned by Miss Alice Callaghan, on a huge parcel of land in her name. This seemed unusual for the time. Further research has revealed the intriguing story of the Callaghan family and, in particular, Aliceâ€™s mother Anne. Anne migrated to Australia from Ireland in 1840, at the age of 18, with her older sister Jane. Anne married
Hugh Callaghan and Jane married Thomas Mitchell.
The couples worked hard to make a life in the new colony. The two sisters and their husbands were droving cattle when Anne was attacked by aborigines. In the 1850s Anne, Jane and their husbands arrived in Echuca, in its first decade of European settlement. The men bought extensive property in central Echuca at its initial land sales.
Despite owning a pub, Hugh enjoyed drinking at other bars, including the Bridge Hotel, owned by Echuca’s founder and entrepreneur, Henry Hopwood. In 1858 Anne went to court to complain about her husband’s continual state of intoxication. She successfully convinced the court to prevent Henry Hopwood or anyone else from providing liquor to Hugh Callaghan for one year. The feisty Irishwoman obviously irritated exconvict Henry Hopwood, who was charged with using indecent and insulting language to Anne Callaghan in a public place. The last of Anne’s eight children, Alice, was born 3 months after Hugh’s death in 1862. His estate was worth 300 pounds. Anne continued running the Royal Hotel and overseeing Hugh’s carrying business. She had a team of horses and won first prize for a draught gelding at the 1863 show.
The next year, free to
purchase property in her own right, she began buying more land. Anne owned a large area of land opposite St Mary’s Church which she leased as livery stables and saleyard. Anne Callaghan became one of Echuca’s first land developers, building numerous rental properties,

style residence, on part of her mother’s land.
The owners have enjoyed uncovering the original features of â€˜Callaghan Houseâ€™.
In 1881 the Riverine Herald described Anne as one of Echuca’s most important oldest settlers, but she wasn’t the only woman in the town’s early history to prove herself equal to the men. Mrs Hatfield and Mrs Simonds took over their late husbands’ hairdressing and chemist businesses.
Eliza Sutton actively
engaged in public debate about issues concerning the town. After George Sutton died in 1878 his wife Eliza continued to run their business very successfully, with Sutton’s bakery remaining in the family for many years and still operating in Echuca today.
When Anne Callaghan passed away in 1899 her estate
was valued at over 2600 pounds. She had multiplied the family’s assets considerably through hard work and a rather frugal existence, living with her children in a modest residence in High Street, near the site of the current CWA hall. Mrs Callaghan would have been a ‘notable pioneer’ had the term not been reserved for men only. Anne left most of her property to her two unmarried daughters, Alice and Rose. In 1902 Alice Callaghan continued in her mother’s footsteps, organizing the construction of a substantial home in Queen Anne style on some of the land her mother owned. It featured a turret and flagpole, cost 1400 pounds to build and remains a lasting legacy to the Callaghan women. A Riverine Herald article of the time described the home as an ‘ornament to the borough’, with the kitchen, pantry and cellar ‘replete with every convenience in the shape of shelves, hot water arrangements etc.’
Alice rented this house to Dr Kelly for use as a residence and consulting rooms. It was the first property in Echuca to have a telephone, with a line running from the Post Office nearby. By the time Alice passed away in 1924 she had increased the value of the Callaghan estate to over 23,000 pounds.
In accordance with her mother’s
instructions, a considerable sum was given to charity, including St Vincent’s hospital, a Bendigo orphanage, St Mary’s and the Brigidine Convent in Echuca. The story of the Callaghan women and their connection to the home began to gradually disappear. For many years Dr Ahern used the house for a family residence and consulting rooms. Over the decades the ornate features of the house were slowly hidden by dropped ceilings, partitions and cupboards. The current owners, Gerardine and Paul Jarman, bought the building in 2004. The original, richly hued Minton hall tiles were clues of treasures to be discovered.
Bathroom before renovation
‘I believe this home was destined to be ours. My grandparents owned an old house and never moved. I loved the idea of that,’ explains Gerardine.
The couple’s first job was to uncover the original features of the once elegant residence. In the first days of renovation they were thrilled to uncover intricate plaster ceilings in the front rooms: intricate eucalyptus

leaf patterning indicated a new found appreciation of Australian flora following federation. Through research, early photos and detective work, Gerardine and Paul have faithfully returned the home to its former glory. ‘We’ve never built or renovated before so found the process very exciting. We’ve employed others to do much of the skilled work.’ A Bendigo tradesmen in his 70s spent over three months restoring the tuck pointed brick work and repairing the plaster work. The original rear verandah had been removed and was rebuilt.
At Snooze we have a comprehensive rage of bedroom furniture and expert staff that can help you find exactly what you need for a good night sleep. Isn’t it time to sleep well...
A striking feature of the home is its turret which once boasted a flagpole.
This may be reinstated in the
future. Entry to the home is via a large entrance hall, once used as access to the consulting rooms on the right, which are now blocked off for rented office space. To the left of the front door are the study and a magnificent octagonal bay window looking onto the cottage garden.

Paul and Gerardine are justifiably proud of the job they’ve done. ‘We love living in the middle of town. It’s fun talking to people passing by and we’ve plenty of space to grow with our children,’ says Gerardine. The backyard is huge and includes the original stables. It has a beautiful view of the adjacent church. Appropriately, the Jarmans have now chosen to name their home Callaghan House. Their sensitive renovation of this magnificent residence has brought to light the remarkable story of Anne Callaghan and her daughter– pioneers who helped shape the town of Echuca we love today. [hs]

The hall ceilings are lined with kauri pine. To the right of the hall are the children’s and master bedrooms. To the left is the living area and kitchen, with access to the laundry. With Paul’s background in hospitality, this home is set up for entertaining. The kitchen has easy access to the outdoor entertaining area outside and the adjacent living room. The pantry/utility area is conveniently located beside the kitchen, out of view. The renovation has been cleverly designed. There have been no major structural changes and the integrity of the building has been retained. The residence has a feeling of spaciousness due to ceilings which are over fourteen foot high. Often it’s difficult to include an ensuite in older homes but the amalgamation of hallway space and an adjacent room enabled the creation of a good sized master bedroom, with walkin-robe, shower and toilet.

IT CAN BE FUN Welcome to Travel with Kidz ...
Travel with Kidz specialises in family holidays worldwide.
A D V E N T U R E
Travel with Kidz consultants provide detailed itineraries, prepaid accommodation, car hire, transfers, passes and excellent recommendations for making your family holiday a success. We invite you to share our passion for travelling. With the right knowledge travelling with children will create a lifetime of memories for the whole family. The experience of seeing, touching, smelling and meeting the different cultures around the world becomes a reality. Ride in a gondola, dance with the Maasai, play volleyball with the Fijians, snorkel with nemo on the Reef, eat chocolate crepes on the Champs Elysees or swim with the dolphins in Hawaii. Text books teach history and TV shows are visual, though nothing beats sharing the real thing with your family. Travelscene @ lyn mcnaught is proud to have Travel with kidz as one of their specialist divisions.
