A truly authentic escape, Mapledurham is a large home designed to capture the essence of modern country life.
Designed by alumni from the renowned JCB Architects and built by award-winning luxury builder ACS Builders, the design gives a subtle nod to rural New England style homes and features gabled roofline and dormer windows and seamlessly incorporates all the modern luxuries that you would expect in an indulgent getaway.
Interiors are befitting a relaxed but stylish country retreat, living areas combine modern open spaces for socialising with plenty of cosy warm nooks for curling up. Furniture is oversized with a focus on sophisticated comfort. Large timber double doors open to the wrap-around verandas draw in the picturesque natural surrounds over the farmland of Newlyn.
A double-height void with an impressive 6m high ceiling houses the main living area. This handsome room features doors that access the deck, a large L shaped couch, TV, and 1m wood fireplace, perfect for every season. Wide planked French oak floorboards flow from this space into the kitchen and dining areas.
The large and beautiful kitchen features a freestanding SMEG oven, heaps of bench space including a 3m island, a butlers pantry, and timeless aged brass tapware, perfect for entertaining in style.
All four bedrooms are generous and have lovely vistas and ample hanging space for longer stays. The master bedroom is a truly private realm and features a TV, walk-in robe, and ensuite with a double shower and freestanding stone bath. 100% wool looped carpet flows from the bedrooms and into the moody snug, where you can retreat to when the kids have gone to bed, or you want to retire to enjoy a movie or ‘me’ time with a good book and a glass of wine.
There is plenty to do in and about Daylesford, Creswick, or Ballarat, but really there is not much need to leave the house. With a stocked fridge and pantry, you really can bunker down and enjoy the space of the home. Days spent in the living area huddled on the couch by the roaring fire are the perfect antidote to stress and our busy lives. Afternoons cooking feasts in the expansive and social kitchen are effortless here.
When entering the property, you feel transported to a peaceful and slower pace of life. Views of gently rolling hills for miles around are calming to the senses and allow you to unwind into your perfect getaway.
