Originally inspired by Mies van der Rohe’s Farnsworth House, the design of Gabion Hill Glenlyon has taken a minimalist approach, allowing nature to take centre stage. Situated on 7 acres outside of Glenlyon in rural Victoria, it’s the perfect setting to escape the hustle and bustle.
Built and styled by builder and designer duo, owners Jeremy and Jeannie, the design profile is paired back and monochromatic, allowing the floor to ceiling windows and natural vistas to work their magic. The home has been named after the gabion retaining walls that clad the house which is designed to blend the home into the natural bush setting.
The home has been designed for relaxation. The open planned living area is the heart of the home and features a comfortable lounge area and gorgeous feature fireplace. It’s a great spot to enjoy relaxed evenings by the fire whilst looking out over the flood-lit bushland. For the budding chef, there’s an outdoor wood-fired oven. Spend a balmy evening relaxing on the deck, enjoying a tasty wood-fired pizza. Though, whilst you’re busy stoking the wood fire, you’ll find me relaxing in the sunken bathtub overlooking the bush.
With two double rooms and two bunk rooms there’s space for the entire family. If you need some additional space the owners also have a small hut next to the home that can be separately rented and accommodates 4 people. However rest assured, the property is all yours to enjoy.
Located in a peaceful bush setting, the home provides access to the Loddon State Forest. Spend your days out amongst nature and exploring the bush. When you’re ready to re-emerge, you’ll find you’re only 10 minutes away from the cafes, restaurants and boutiques of Daylesford. There will be no troubles locating a great cup of coffee and a fresh loaf of sourdough. Enjoy this special country retreat.
