** RURAL RETREAT IN A PRIVATE COUNTRY PROPERTY **
The property is secluded with established trees and gardens giving you and your family total privacy. The property is also conveniently positioned in central Red Hill, allowing easy access to restaurants, wineries, orchards, olive groves, horse riding, hiking trails, and cafes.
Stay at Cloudland and indulge in rural life to create your own memories with good company, fresh food, and fine wine.
** History **
Along a country road in the middle of lush hinterland lies a country house with Red Hill history.
Mr. and Mrs. Jarman visited Red Hill in the early 1900s from Devon, England to find land to plant an apple orchard. They found rich soil in Red Hill and planted their orchards and built their family home in 1921. The home was named Devonia and was the central part of the original Devon Farm estate, the largest apple orchard on the Mornington Peninsula which spread along Mornington Flinders Road from Tedesca restaurant to Ten Minutes by Tractor. These restaurants were once homes to their children. (These restaurants were once homes and cool stores for their children)
Today, the home is called Cloudland and retains its original Craftsman-style architecture and established gardens and has also been lovingly renovated over the years. A large verandah/deck wraps around the house, the tractor shed is converted to a games room, the horse stable is now a cottage and the gardens now include a swimming pool, cubby house/playground, farm paddocks, vegetable/herb garden, rose arbor with rural views, and more.
** Living Zones **
The house has 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a renovated kitchen with a new walk-in farm pantry, a large entertainment space, and two separate living spaces with fireplaces. The house retains its original architectural features including high decorative ceilings, fireplaces, and leadlight windows with plenty of natural light.
Enter the home and you'll find the "fireside" sitting room with a large open fireplace, library, sofas with windows that look out onto the front garden and fountain.
** Bed and Bath **
Bedroom 1 - King Bed
Bedroom 2 - Queen Bed
Bedroom 3 - Queen Bed and Single Bed
Bedroom 4 - 1 x Set of Bunks + 2 x small children's single beds with access to the courtyard and games room
There are 3 bathrooms - en-suite with double rain showers; guest bathroom with rain shower and built-in laundry; guest bathroom with shower and claw foot bathtub. The en-suite bathroom and guest bathroom have been fully renovated. (Current photos do not reflect this, updated images available on request).
Down the hallway is a well-equipped kitchen and bar with an open plan living and dining room, with a table seating for up to 12 guests. This large entertaining space has recycled local timber floorboards, beamed ceilings, fireplace, Smart TV, and windows on every side with views of the gardens and valley.
Leading from the entertainment space to the outdoors is a covered terrace with an outdoor dining setting for 10 guests and a BBQ that overlooks the rear lawn, a garden out to the rural views across the valley.
Cloudland has a bright cream interior and an eclectic mix of antique and modern furniture from New York, Asia, and Australia. Some walls house ornate mirrors and the light fixtures include original lamps, Italian Murano glass chandeliers, and sconces along with a chandelier dubbed the Russian Wedding Cake made by a local artist.
The modern touches include ducted and zoned heating and cooling, a renovated kitchen complete with stainless steel workbenches, a marble bar benchtop, and a large open plan living space with sofas and a fireplace.
There is something special to experience everywhere you wander throughout this picturesque property!
