Thorn Park by the vines is located on the edge of Seven Hill in the Clare Valley in South Australia.

David and Michael are consummate professionals when it comes to creating a superb environment that it totally luxurious and utterly tasteful. Their latest property Thorn Park by the vines manages to capture the essence of privacy and peace and has just the right amount of modernity and openness without ever intruding into the private spaces of the rooms. A late afternoon drink on their main deck looking out over their dam at sunset the view empitomises everything that the extraordinary landscape artist Sir Hans Heysen so cleverly captured on canvas in his superb landscapes.
