Description

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.

And kids under 18 stay free. So even if you are a family of 8 - mama, papa and 6 kids - you only pay the base rate.

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 vintage fold-out couch in the sleeping zone of the house that comfortably accommodates one child. And a single day bed with inner-spring mattress in the toy/games space. 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.

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.

Environmentally Friendly

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.

Family/kid Friendly

We are a family with young children so we understand kid-friendly accommodation. Our space includes: a gorgeous leander cot and all bedding; change table; high chair; block-out blinds in all bedrooms, double-glazing, screens and heaters in all bedrooms; kiddy toilet seats available; huge bath; plenty of toys; enclosed deck space; amazing 'magic farawy tree' cubby house; trampoline; heaps of lambs, goats, alpacas and horses all within walking distance. Kids stay for free.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tranquil, restorative and beautifully designed. We had a truly wonderful time in this beautiful home. It has the most wonderful views, is well laid out and perfect for a family to have solace and communal time. The wildlife is wonderful too as is the proximity to Melbourne. Bron was so warm and helpful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful We had a fantastic stay at the White House. It was middle of winter and the fire kept the whole house warm! We weren't cold once! The kids loved the huge bath, hand feeding parrots on the deck and exploring the property, we loved the kitchen, comfy beds and sitting in the dark with the fire going and a glass of wine. Would definitely stay again. Great communication with owner as well.
