Originally built as a hill station in 1905 and recently renovated to a high standard.

This home has been in the same family for 30 years and has never before been offered as a holiday rental.

Just over an hours drive from Melbourne and a 2 minute drive into Healesville's town centre.

Set in magnificent grounds of approximately 6 acres, a heady blend of ancient trees, lawns with azaleas, rhododendrons and camellias to name a few. Out the back citrus trees and herbs.

High on its own hill with total privacy.

Within these grounds there is ample space to lose your friends for an hour or so in a quiet corner, read or just take in the mountain ranges and valleys in the near distance.

Summer outdoors revolves around the swimming in the solar heated pool and tennis court or perhaps a game of croquet...but be warned the bumps in the lawn will give everyone an even chance.

The home is sprawling, somewhat grand with a touch of the eclectic.

The original ballroom, now a living space opens via the french doors onto a party sized northern verandah shaded by wisteria and enhanced by both heating and 'Raffles' styled fans.

You will not want to leave it, and it will no doubt be the centre of your time at Amani peace, with its gardenia or jasmine scents depending on the season.

The rest of the house will not disappoint with the library, tvs in two separate areas, cd and a record player in the living area, 3 open fire places with a well stocked woodbox, hydronic heating throughout and the games room for adults or children.

The large country kitchen has a new double Smeg oven and there is a Nespresso machine with pods to get you started.

There are 3 double bedrooms, the games room with 2 single beds if needed and 2 1/2 bathrooms.

The house is suitable for couples, families or groups.

The house is on single level with two steps into the house if wheelchair access required and there is plenty of parking around the back.

No pets on furniture or beds. Also note property is not fenced.

Please also note we supply all towels and bed linen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ~ Perfect Easter Weekend Getaway ~ After spending the most perfect Easter long weekend in this ideal location with friends, we can now see why this property is aptly named 'Amani House' because it truly is peaceful. Tucked away on the hilltop, surrounded by nature and so close to all the Yarra Valley has to offer. We had guests from London staying with us and this was the perfect place to base ourselves to showcase the beautiful Melbourne countryside. They loved spotting the crimson rosella's in the japanese maple trees, playing tennis/foosball, retiring by the fireplace at night with a glass of red or G&T, relaxing in the library with a book. Wonderful record collection, firewood well stocked, grounds well maintained. Hopefully we will have the pleasure of returning one day in the near future. I can highly recommend a stay here to anyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blissful Retreat! An extremely beautiful grand old, home tastefully decorated with antiques, books and modern art. Everything is provided for a wonderful stay... even a record player with great records!! The house, grounds, tennis court and swimming pool are very well maintained. We had a great time ... so lucky to get the experience & a house like this on Stayz!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely perfect! A bunch of friends and I stayed for the weekend and we felt at home immediately and couldn't believe how beautiful the house and gardens were. We were welcomed with some lovely fresh food hampers which was a nice a surprise. We had a hit of tennis, a swim in the pool, and wine and cheese on the front deck, it was a perfect weekend! Thank you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful Holiday Break We are a family of five adults who stayed at Amani House for 7 nights over December/January. The property is located near the main Healesville area, but secluded on a mountain with an established garden providing lots of privacy. There are three large bedrooms. We used the pool and tennis court during our stay and loved having our meals on the properties verandah. Overall, we had a great stay and enjoyed the rustic charms of Amani House. We would recommend it to anyone exploring the Yarra Valley.
