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 Noels Gallery to Ten Minutes by Tractor. These restaurants were once homes to 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. The tractor shed has been 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 garden, rose arbor with rural views and more. ** Living Zones ** The house has 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a renovated kitchen, 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.

Leading from the entertainment space to the outdoors is a covered terrace with an outdoor dining setting for 10 guests and a BBQ which overlooks the rear lawn, a garden out to the rural views across the valley. Cloudland has 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.
