A retreat sheltered by mountains and vines

Healesville is an idyllic town home to artisan producers and antique markets, award-winning wineries and restaurants, craft brewers and boutique beauties. And nestled amid its forested mountains and gnarling vines, you’ll find Furmston House – a gorgeous retreat with a gourmet twist.

Furmston House is set up high to provide sweeping views of the distant ranges and nearby farmlands. A mix of industrial and Nordic pieces creates a striking interior style – think Eames-esque designs met with raw timbers and metals, feature wallpapers against fresh greens, and native bouquets in every room. Laze on the lounge amongst a pile of screen-printed cushions, a tribute to the crafty nature of the town (in fact you’ll likely find these wares in shops along the main strip). The living room takes in the surrounds through its double French doors, which depending on the season you’ll want to pull back and let cool air float through, or keep closed and enjoy sun streaming in. There’s a kitchen complete with cast-iron cookware, chef’s knives and Riedel wine glasses, which means entertaining is a must. And with chocolatiers, fromageries, the property’s Kitchen & Butcher, and the Healesville Hotel on your doorstep, you’ll definitely be inspired. Host a swanky dinner party, and then camp-out in front of the wood fire for late night chats over wine.

For something more intimate, Furmston Studio is ideal for couples wanting to explore Healesville’s cute cafes, shops and restaurants. This stay is completely separate from Furmston House, with its own entrance, a plush king-sized bed, a sitting room and a small private deck – everything you could want of a weekend escape a ‘deux.

Positioned just back from Healesville’s hub, this home gives you the option to do it all, or nothing at all. Enjoy a restful weekend unwinding, or take on all of the activities, spending days meeting winemakers and sampling their wares, and nights indulging at an array of restaurants. Whatever you decide to do, Healesville is a charming spot you’ll want to return to again and again, and this is a wonderful base with ties to the area’s foodie hotspots.
