One of our favourite regions in Victoria to get away from it all and relax is Daylesford and Hepburn Springs, so we’re always excited whenever we discover brand new properties to add to collection. The area is well-visited and for good reason – with countless dining options in both local cafes and restaurants, boutique and market shopping at your fingertips, gorgeous natural beauty, and of course endless pampering and treatment options at the many day spas, the area is a firm favourite for a romantic getaway, family get-together or a girls weekend. With the township historically significant itself, read on to discover our three brand new grand and elegant houses who remember the yesteryear of Daylesford and Hepburn Springs.
A generously sized and recently-restored historic Victorian house, The Tiverton is the perfect sanctuary in which to gather family or friends – perhaps hosting a get-together barbecue on the cosy verandah. Being just a short walk from the main street of Daylesford and Lake Daylesford, you can also enjoy the close proximity of the shopping, dining and natural highlights of the town, whilst being able to retreat easily back into the haven of your private home-away-from-home. Once you’ve had your fill of exploring, you can tuck yourselves away in the library, share a night cooking together in the modern kitchen, or simply enjoy the quiet comfortable space of the 6 bedrooms and spa bath.
