Uccello Lane – Early days

We moved into Uccello Lane in 2012 – it was a mudbrick house on a lane that led to the Yarra River – with a garden that was very natural and overgrown but all the hard landscaping and rock work had been done.

Every room had floor length windows so you really felt like you were at one with the outside.

For the winter there was a conservatory to sit in and catch the winter sun.
It had been a good winter so the flowing lawns looked lush – just as well since our first summer here was long and dry.

The first thing we noticed were the birds – they were every where so that is why we decided to name this wonderful landscape Uccello Lane – Italian for Bird.
