Heatherlie...

I'm not sure if this has already been posted but this is a stunningly beautiful Provincial style guest cottage in Historic Maldon, Victoria (the centre of the goldfields) Australia.
Heatherlie was featured in this months Country Homes Ideas magazine - Owners Robyn and Ian Slattery have made extensive renovations to the pretty circa - 1880's cottage which features a classic bullnose verandah, open fireplaces with slate hearths and floors polished in Baltic pine. The main house has three bedrooms and two bathrooms that can accommodate up to three couple, so it's great for a group of friends looking for a quiet break. All rooms boast soft comfortable queen-size beds and luxurious white linen, while the bathrooms have deep claw-foot baths and stylish Crabtree & Evelyn products.





Guh....I'm swooning at it's neutral colour palette, earthy textures, warmth and comfortability.


This is exactly the kind of place I could see myself relax and unwind whether a romantic trip for two or with 4 of my closest friends :)

It's all about the details isn't it? :)




^^ I love eet!









Winter is approaching and so is my need to get away from the city. What a fabulous find. Thank you CHI!!

What a gorgeous place to stay for a weekend getaway! Maldon has always been on my 'to do' list of places to visit...I have no excuse now!

Stunning!

julia said...

so pretty.. can't you just feel the spring breeze coming through those windows. I am obsessed with the floors-- wide planked pine(?) and brick?! and the color palate is to die for. Also I just love the large glass panes on the doors. Sigh...I feel I should be sipping some fresh homemade lemonaid with mint while strolling through these rooms.... Meanwhile, currently, it's snowing here in NYC!

Lovely lovely lovely to have you back in blogland!
Maldon is a fabulous little town with the most incredible lace and linen shop on the main street. Expensive but oh so beautiful French linens and laces to drool over. Worth a trip for that alone - I just wish I could remember the name....

Great post Anna, I have not yet seen this house. I love it. I also wanted to share with you my antiquing post I did last week. You allowed me to journey with you in Sydney while looking for some good junk, I want to return the favor. Thanks for sharing and have a great day. Heidi

Hi Anna!
It was great to hear from you the other day.
So nice to see your posts! Love that green sink base with the vessel sink on top. I think turning a piece of furniture into a sink base looks so much more interesting than just your average cabinet.
