Old baltic pine boards lining the Cottage were originally from a pool room at the rear of an old Toorak mansion, demolished to make way for “development”. The Cottage is furnished with many timeless items discovered at antique dealers or sourced from restorers.

The old fire mantle surrounding the open fireplace came from an old cottage near Warnambool, Victoria, and was restored by a school teacher friend of our daughters.

French doors were purchased from the restorers barn in Castlemaine and are made from recycled timber doors out of an old local cottage.

You can relax after a long day touring, shopping or visiting the wineries in two comfy chairs on the back verandah. With views out over the paddocks towards the hills, it is an ideal spot for unwinding with a glass, mug or cup of your favorite beverage sitting on the table.

The wide front verandah enjoys the morning sun on those bright, cheery spring and autumn days. Imagine yourself there with a morning cup of tea or coffee, enjoying the fresh, clean air and gentle sunshine.
