Please note that this property is bookable via enquiry only.

 

Overview

 

 

Established circa 1880, Hightor accommodates up to 12 guests with flexible bedding arrangements. The rooms are serviced by three bathrooms, two of which are en suites. From on high, lodgers will enjoy commanding views of Mount Franklin and the lights of Castlemaine by night. The grounds of the home were landscaped by the same designers who plotted Wombat Hill, Daylesford’s own botanic gardens, situated just across the road from Hightor.

 

 

The Space

 

 

This beautiful vacation home stands out for its tasteful design as much as its ideal location. The interior palette consists of rich browns, gentle blues and pristine whites. Stunning original artworks bring grey and charcoal tones to balance out every room. Unique, framed images adorn the walls, while fascinating sculptures perch atop mantles, desks and shelves. Baltic floorboards and a roaring fireplace exude cosiness and comfort. High ceilings along with large windows and French doors keep the spaces open and bright. The main lounge area is furnished with four plush, leather couches, illuminated by natural light, with a flat screen TV for entertainment.

 

            The kitchen comes fully equipped with all the necessary appliances, including a spectacular Falcon cast-iron oven/stove, befitting the heart of such a splendid property. Dine with views from either of two balconies that look out over the surrounding grounds. Relax and eat, with rolling grasses, magnificent trees and the splendour of country Victoria all around.

 

            Hightor’s six bedrooms offer one king bed each, all of which can be split into singles upon request. Ducted heating and air conditioning will ensure a comfortable temperature year-round.

 

Location

 

 

The house’s street frontage is kept private by a well-maintained hedge. Nearby, the Convent Gallery can be found, repurposed to house gorgeous works from both local and international artists. The town of Daylesford proper has plenty of its own galleries to offer, along with restaurants, bars, stores and wellness centres. Hightor is perfectly situated for those interested in a cultural tour of regional Victoria.

 

Holidaymakers looking to experience the culture of regional Victoria should look no further than Hightor, a historical fixture of Daylesford set in amongst some of the town’s most stunning features.
