This is the jewel in the crown From the moment you drive up the magnificent drive, this hexagonal glass house takes in the breathtaking views. High ceiling, glass walls, no close neighbours, river walks, huge pool, close to wineries. A paradise.
This is a unique property built by a well-known meditation teacher as a healing retreat. Completely isolated, it is a hexagon with glass walls and a cellar. The property is 40 acres and set in the Little Yarra Valley offshoot of the Upper Yarra Valley. Our house is located on a high island of the valley with views that stunn. We have approx 700 metres of Little Yarra River frontage with several acres of rain-forest wet sclerophyll. There is also a pine forest and walks everywhere. We even have an old gold mine
The house is made from wood, much of which was originally cut from the property. I like to think it is a bit 'African Safari', it is the perfect excuse to escape the city and enjoy a more peaceful way of life.
Why is our house unique?
Everyone who comes to the house adores it. They gasp at the views, revel in the serenity and marvel at the connection to nature. We have 270 kangaroos on the lawn and wombats by the pool at night as well as two resident kangaroos
In addition to staying at our lovely house, we also provide the following so you can really enjoy your stay:
- A pet kangaroo always a winner
- A magnificnet horizon pool setting with barbecue
- There is 4G accessible from the property for those who need it
- A walk-in pantry with all of the basic cooking condiments including locally produced olive oil, salt/pepper, spices, herbs, flour, sugar, tea, coffee etc.
- Bread-maker, slow-cooker, juicer.
- Double Liebherr fridge
- Completely renovated
- Our water is all natural from the tank. The pressure and supply is excellent
Our house has three large bedrooms with 3 queen beds. We do have extra mattresses if required and can comfortably sleep 8, but state 6.
The master bedroom looks out over the valley and is truly a beauty to behold. The other bedrooms look over the garden. The kangaroos come onto the lawn in the morning and you can watch the clouds pass up the valley and even see snow on Donna Buang on the colder days.
The house is fully centrally heated.
Our pool is huge. It is nearly 25 metres long and 10 feet deep to mix my measures at the deep end.
The deck around the pool is massive and enough to hold a ballroom dancing competition please don't
Modern laundry with all the amenities.
