Just an hour from Melbourne’s CBD and nestled in the hills above the famous Yarra Valley is this stunning, designer renovated, eco-friendly home. With crisp white walls, lime-washed floors, retro features, a massive chef’s kitchen, and breathtaking views, it's certainly a gorgeous place to relax and unwind.
The house features three enormous, light-filled bedrooms all with BIRs.The master suite includes a king bed, a walk-in robe with laundry chute, and an ensuite with stunning views. The second light-filled bedroom features a queen bed and leander cot. The third large bedroom features a separate single bed plus a bunk bed with a single on top and double underneath. There is also a single day bed (with inner-spring mattress) in the toy/games space, and a spare floor mattress if required. A re-conditioned, 100 year old claw foot bath takes pride of place in the enormous vintage-style bathroom.
A 3.7 metre long gleaming white state-of-the-art bench-top, a top of the line European 6 burner stove, and a walk-in larder are highlights of the chef’s kitchen. The spacious open plan living, dining and kitchen area feature high ceilings, a wood burning heater, double glazing, and roof, wall and floor insulation ensuring you’re warm and cozy even when it snows.
The established garden features plenty of herbs, mature fruit trees and bursts into colour every spring. And the many chestnut trees make autumn spectacular!
Sitting at the end of a quiet country lane, the house capitalises on the breathtaking views across neighbouring farmland to Mt St Leonards. June/July is lambing season in Kinglake, and the neighbouring property usually welcomes over 200 newborn lambs. Sit by the fire and enjoy spectacular moon rises. Watch the hot air balloons appear through the dawn mist framed perfectly by the enormous double-glazed windows. In summer, open the huge screened, bi-fold doors to capture the cooling southerly breezes. Or hang out on the vast, wrap-around decks (there's a BBQ and outdoor settings).
IMPORTANT: This website doesn't allow us to include a kids stay free option. So the base price of the house includes 2 adults and all kids under 18. ie. so even if you are a family of 8 - mama, papa and 6 kids - you only pay the base rate. If you are a group of adults please note that there is an additional nightly charge of $45 per person after the first 2 adults. :)
LINEN: To try and keep accomodation costs down we don't normally supply linen. However, if you're coming from out of town, or if it's inconvenient for you to bring your own, we can supply all linen for a reasonable extra charge (from $45 per stay depending on the number in your party).
Our home reflects our passion for both the natural environment and for intelligent, beautiful design. It features solar power, rainwater tanks, a septic system, green design features (including a mudroom airlock and living, green wall), and zero VOC finishes. Our environmental care also extends to the cleaning products we use. And our home is filled with ‘retro’ and pre-loved fixtures and furnishings to further minimise our impact on the planet.
