Lapito House is a contemporary renovation of an old stone farmhouse in Myponga on the Fleurieu Peninsula. The property spans over 116 acres and borders with the Heysen Trail and Myponga National Park. Just an hours drive out of Adelaide, it is the perfect escape for couples, families and friends who want to relax, enjoy and explore the Australian bush.
Both John and Yvonne and their three children planted around 4000 local eucalyptus and acacia trees around the property. Today, the land is in better condition in both built form and landscape than it has ever been.
Being designers, they wanted to create something unique, adding their own textiles, restored furniture and a collection of artwork to create the feel of a 'mini museum' of contemporary art and design. Although the interior of the property has been transformed, the original stonework of the exterior has been left untouched.
It is the perfect getaway to escape and unwind. Most importantly: pets are welcome.
