About our home

Our glorious home sits on a hill in the Yarra Valley wine region, one hour from Melbourne. The house overlooks the bustling town of Healesville with views from every room to the mountain ranges. It is set in one acre of gardens mixing beautiful exotic plants such as rhododendrons, azaleas and roses; as well as many native plants that attract the bright parrots, possums and occasional kangaroos. There are two double bedrooms, both with ensuites. An open plan kitchen, dining and living area opens out to an external terrace area with BBQ. There is a study with wifi internet and a music room. The house is all on one level and can be entered from the double carport.

Where is it?


Buzzy restaurants
There are many award winning wineries in the Yarra Valley with excellent restaurants. We recommend Giant Steps and The Olive Tree tapas in the main street or Zonzos and Locale at De Bortoli.
Cool bars
The nearby town of Healesville (3kms) has many hotels and bars incluing several that have excellent live music on a regular basis. We suggest the Grind 'n' Groove and Healesville Hotel.
Cozy cafés
Too many cafes to mention. Rest assured you will be spoilt for choice. Start with Healesville Harvest and Eludae in the main street.
Retail therapy
The town of Healesville has many funky shops, several local markets, including art and craft and weekly organic farmers market. Lilydale is 20 minutes away with commercial shopping centres, the huge Easland shopping centre is 30 minutes away and Melbourne easily visited by car, coach or train.
Bit of culture
TarraWarra Museum of Art is a stunning art gallery that hosted the Archibald portrait prize exhibition amongst others. There are lots of local artists studios to visit as well as artisan markets, organic farmers market and trash and treasure type markets. The Healesville Memo Hall hosts a state of the art movie theatre with art house and mainstream movies as well as a regular menu of top class theatre, comedy roadshow and musical performances.
Walks in the park
Nearby Badgers Weir Picnic Ground and Maroondah Dam will have you sitting in the shade of the tall trees and chatting to the brightly coloured birdlife.
Spot of exercise
Zoos Victoria's Healesville Sanctuary Zoo is internationally renowned and you can easily spend a day there. Bushwalking, rail trails, national parks, nearby snowfields, mountain climbs and the Dandenong Ranges. Several golf courses in the area.
Day tripping
You can easily do a day trip to Melbourne for the excellent shopping available there. You can drive up the magestic Black Spur and visit picturesque Marysville or the nearby Dandenongs.
