About Burkleigh House
Burkleigh House is a 62 year old home which has been substantially altered in the light of its newfound role as a first class guest house. The front fašade has been wrapped in a large sunny veranda which is ideal for sundowners as it looks over the bustle of the city from an austere elevation, with views of mature trees, an acre of gardens and a sparkling pool.
Guests are welcome to indulge in the seclusion of several spots where they are able to read or view the bird life which have also made Burkleigh House their home.
