Encaptured by the stunning views, undulating landscape and granite outcrops, Mary and Bede Gibson moved from their Middle Harbour home in Sydney 10 years ago with a vision of establishing an oasis of peace and tranquility where family and friends could enjoy the charm and fragrance of a country garden.
Using her art and fashion design background, Mary designed extensive gardens and walkways to envelop the home, utilising the natural contours and granite boulders of the land. A small orchard and large raised vegetable garden provides a year round supply of organic fruit, vegetables and preserves.
In 2013 a studio was completed to cater for special occasion events business meetings and workshops.
Mica Grange is close to Mt Alexander and offers many picturesque nature walks and an abundance of kangaroos.
