Under the shade of a giant Sequoia tree, nestled in a beautiful established garden surrounded by neighboring vineyards and orchards you will find a beautiful rustic chic home. Orchard Keepers was originally 3 separate cottages dating back to the 1890′s & 1950′s, but is has now been lovingly restored and transformed into a beautiful four bedroom home and a separate workers cottage providing country chic accommodation for 10 people on 10 acres in the heart of Red Hill in Victoria, Australia.
Inside there are wood burning fireplaces, lovely linen sofas and beautiful vintage & antique furniture.
Chalk white walls, waxed floorboards, wood burning heater, queen size bed, Bedouin Societe linen, feather pillows, fully equipped kitchenette & bathroom. Beautifully decorated with linen sofa & provincial antiques. French doors opening to the surrounding garden and sea views.
