The Barn // 3 Bedrooms // 3 Bathroom // Rustic Repurposed Barn
Historic country barn adapted for modern living. This 100-year-old countryside fixture has been revitalised and refurbished, bringing all the comforts of contemporary life to regional Victoria. 3 spacious bedrooms can sleep up to 8 guests, with 3 beautifully appointed bathrooms to match.
The Barn’s nondescript, weatherboard exterior hides a thoughtfully designed, rich in character interior unlike any other. A high ceiling of polished wood lends creates an atmosphere of warm magnificence. The open plan living and dining area is likely where guests will spend most of their time. A substantial gas log fire on one end of the room radiates warmth, heating the lounge. Plush leather couches and rustic wooden furniture blend seamlessly with contemporary art and eclectic sculptures.
The adjoining kitchen and dining areas are equally as stunning as the lounge. A wooden dining table is flanked by hand-crafted wicker chairs. The kitchen proper offers modern technology amidst a traditional aesthetic. Cloth hangings take the place of cabinet doors while pristine AGA appliances cater to every culinary need.
On the second level, guests will find the elegantly designed bedrooms. Stunning traditional furniture and beautiful artworks make every room a visual treat. The comfy king beds and modern bedspreads are a reminder of the home’s commitment to modern living. Ceiling fans, air conditioning and radiant floor heating ensure complete temperature control throughout the house, year-round.
Outside, the verdant garden with its outdoor setting invite guests to soak in the fresh country air, or even dine al fresco on warm summer nights. The Barn is a relic of regional Victorian history, rejuvenated and redesigned to fulfil the needs of the modern holidaymaker. The expansive property can be found in the vibrant centre of Daylesford, adjacent to the flourishing Wombat Hill Botanical Garden. The Barn is a fantastic home base from which guests will want to explore the Daylesford region.
