Listen to the land. Garden stewards and custodians stand at the portal of happiness.
One hour from Melbourne, you will find the perfect weekend retreat to escape the relentless hustle of city life. A cleansing ritual, the makeover of this 1960’s cottage and garden offered the owners an opportunity to return this property, overrun by blackberries and possums, to a much loved weekender encouraging a relaxed and simple lifestyle.
With a desire to spend weekends nurturing an organic kitchen garden, harvesting heirloom fruits and sun kissed vegetables, the owners priority with this garden design was to host casual meals in a simple home of eclectic furnishings that flows easily to an equally eclectic garden of old fashioned seasonal treasures and contemporary naturalist drifts.
