The Heights Heritage House and Garden

The last owner of The Heights, Louis Whyte, enjoyed surfing and collecting cars. Visit the stables and see his 1957 Daimler parked there!

He and his wife, a keen gardener, renovated the house in the 1930s. Stroll the gardens and relish their beauty, a tribute to both Marnie Whyte and the Ibbotsons, the original owners.
