Nestled in the heart of Daylesford, Florence is the ultimate getaway pad for anyone looking for fun and relaxation in a stylish and classic modern country home with all the creature comforts you could dream of.
An entertainer’s house, Florence features so much. A four-person ‘Hot Rocks’ sauna, solar heated plunge pool*, and saltwater spa with Hydrotherapy Massage Jets. Beautiful silver travertine tiles surround the area, It’s classic and resort-like by day, but the life of the party by night with feature lighting to the pool spa and outdoor entertaining area. To have all this with privacy and stunning garden vistas is very unique in Daylesford, it really is just what the doctor ordered!
The open plan kitchen, living, and dining areas flow effortlessly to the outdoor zones. Open the house right up in the warmer months, or retreat inwards when it gets cooler to the large comfy couch and enjoy a glass of wine, and a movie in front of the large fireplace.
Almost every detail at Florence has been customised and sourced for the property. Custom Italian linen drapes for the window furnishings not only highlights the garden views but gives a homely feel to the interiors which are layered in texture and earthy tones.
Beautiful oversized cotton and velvet comforters on the beds from New Zealand for that extra cosy and plush feeling. A custom-designed American Oak barn style baby gate has become a feature for the living space too, separating this from the rest of the house which is handy for those that have small children.
Natural materials flow throughout with linens and cotton, adding to the beautiful chunky textured woollen rugs and throws, tribal styling elements, leather, timber, and rattan.
The Catherine Martin “La Palma” wallpaper in the living and dining space is a real feature and brings not only colour and zoning to the big space but a sense of liveliness with the tropical motifs.
The master suite looks out onto the pool zone and entertaining area. It feels like your own private day spa with direct access to the deck area via the huge French doors off the bedroom.
There is a huge T.V, with Netflix, a fab sound system, and a hidden cupboard full of board games for your use.
We cannot think of anything better than relaxing by the pool, after a sauna with a glass of wine dabbling in a board game with friends. We would highly recommend Florence to anyone looking for a super fun weekend away!
*The pool is heated via the Solar Heating when the weather is warm and Sunny (upwards of 22 Degrees Celsius).
