Thoughtful features of the original dairy have been retained throughout The Dairy's bedroom, with exposed timber beams along the walls and roofline of this light and spacious room. A comfortable queen bed awaits guests, while a desk nook, flatscreen TV, air conditioning, and a large antique timber wardrobe complete the space. The bedroom also connects to one of the verandahs, allowing you to lie in bed and take in the views.
The Dairy's bespoke bathroom mixes contemporary design with historic architecture in a gorgeous blend of styles. The original timber weatherboard floor-to-ceiling wall features prominently in this old-meets-new bathroom. The shower is a real stunner, tiled in large distinctive Italian black lava tiles with bronze fittings completing the look. The vanity is a restored vintage piece thoughtfully complemented by modern bronze tapware and a milky cement sink. The bathroom also includes louver windows, allowing for an abundance of natural light and fresh air to enter.
A washing machine is hidden away in cabinetry outside on the verandah.
The Dairy is surrounded by lush countryside on all sides, with a peaceful fire pit to enjoy the evenings. Along the property's verandah you'll find comfortable seating to sit back with a wine or morning coffee and enjoy the view, while a sizable dining table is positioned near the BBQ area.
