About the property

A private, stylish, cottage in the perfect location, with rolling-hill views.

Winchester Rise is the perfect base from which to explore Wilson's Prom and surrounding beaches, inlets and forests. Situated in Foster, it is a private, stylish and relaxing place to stay with great views and many quirky touches.

Foster is South Gippsland's best kept secret. With it's great coffee, cafes and restaurants, golf course and mountain bike park, Foster is located twenty minutes from Wilson's Promontory, Waratah Bay and Port Welshpool. Winchester Rise is located on a rise on the edge of town in a quiet cul de sac, a short stroll to the centre. At your back door are beautiful bush walking tracks through old gold-mining country.

Winchester Rise is unique. It has been renovated by two artists/tradespeople with personal flair and attention to detail. There are two living areas, two beautiful bedrooms, a private garden and Alfresco area with native trees, a covered deck with great rural views, a luxurious bathroom, a modern cook's kitchen, and much more.

We look forward to making your trip a memorable one

About Grant Flather

We are both artists and own a unique art retail business in nearby Meeniyan called The Outer Space (We moved from Melbourne 17 years ago). We have renovated Winchester Rise with great care, thought and love. We wanted to create a welcoming, relaxing and stimulating place to stay - somewhere we would love to stay ourselves.

Grant Flather purchased this house in 2016

Why Grant Flather chose Foster

The location is perfect. Winchester Rise is located on a small rise on the edge of Foster in a quiet cul-de-sac. It affords beautiful views, and is very quiet, yet it is only a short walk to the centre of town. There is also beautiful native bush at the end of the road with walking trails to other parts of town. The house already had the perfect layout - open plan living areas at the front, bedrooms at the back. It took a lot of work, but we have realised our vision for the place very successfully, we think.

What makes this house unique

Quiet location close to all the amenities you need - bakeries, supermarkets, pub, cafes, restaurants, butcher, fishmonger, chemist, golf course, swimming pool, and mountain bike park.

Twenty minutes from the gates of the Prom as well as the rest of Prom country including Agnes Falls and Tarra Bulga National Park.

Uniquely decorated with vintage touches and original artwork, but with modern kitchen and superb bathroom.

Immaculately clean, tidy and had a very warm vibe

  • 5 of 5

We loved the attention to detail - the information provided and the little notes around the place to help find/operate things. All the amenities were provided and we loved the sunroom with the fireplace! Grant was very helpful and responsive from the time of booking to checking out. We couldn't have been happier with our stay. Definitely recommend!

Little Gem!

  • 5 of 5

The girls and I wanted to getaway for the long weekend. Grant and Helen’s place was just perfect! We throughly enjoyed our stay. Grant was great with his communication, he offered alternative for us to do because the weather wasn’t so great. Offered an early and late check-in. The house itself was clean, well presented, everything was perfectly layed out and all that we required was provided. We absolutely fell in love with the fire place too. The girls and I, will definitely have no troubles recommending this place to our friends and family. And would love to return again!
