Historical miner’s cottage with gorgeous modern interior, nestled amongst almost one full acre of mature garden, only a two minute walk from the heart of Daylesford. Originally constructed in 1858, and accommodating up to 14 guests, York House is ideal for group getaways and corporate retreats.
Clean and spacious, York House’s interior is stylish while retaining a rustic feeling which helps it blend in with the area. The front living area features gorgeous, dark leather couches which provide a nice contrast to the light, plain walls. Carpeted and handsomely decorated, this common area is great for hanging out and watching T.V. The adjoining reading room, centred by a small table and chairs, is perfect for quiet relaxation and has plenty of natural light. A pair of doors also leads to the outdoor verandah if you’ve a mind to spend some time enjoying the garden.
The main living room shares an open-plan space with the dining room and kitchen. Again well-lit with natural light from the many windows and glass doors, this area forms the heart of York House. The country kitchen comes equipped with all the necessary conveniences, including a fridge, dishwasher and large island bench with ample storage space. Dark wood cabinets and light countertops give this kitchen a sleek feel without needing to compromise on functionality. Kick back on the soft, dark grey couches after dining together, or take advantage of the home’s outdoor areas.
York House also offers 7 elegant bedrooms. Boasting comfy beds, natural light, and an eclectic blend of modern and antique decorations, these rooms epitomise York House‘s utterly unique style. The residence’s 4 bathrooms are decorated and equipped to a similar standard. Guests can also enjoy complimentary toiletries and linen, ducted heating, air conditioning and free WiFi to make their stay as pleasant as possible.
Just outside, enclosed by garden, is a beautiful outdoor setting with several tables and a barbeque. Whether you’re enjoying a quiet breakfast, recreating together during the day, dining alfresco or unwinding in the evenings, the greenery of York House‘s private garden will be the linchpin of the experience. From the hanging vines to the bright flowers that pop amongst the leaves, this mature garden is sure to please the eye.
Being so close to the centre of Daylesford, it will be easy for guests to take advantage of the many restaurants, shops, wellness centres and cafés in the surrounding area.
