Introducing the contemporary edge of urban cool into a relaxed country landscape.

Property reviewed by Stephanie Mikkelsen on Monday, March 13, 2017

Perched on an award-winning olive grove, Villa Rochford is a bespoke two-bedroom villa that introduces the contemporary edge of urban cool into a relaxed country landscape. The Villa sits on Rochford Hall, a beautiful rural property with a strong history and a location that makes it the gateway to the Tasman Peninsula.

Villa Rochford is a beauty and will have discerning design-savants nodding in appreciation. Clad in Tasmanian Oak and boasting exposed concrete floors, reclaimed timber features and high ceilings, the villa manages to tread the line between industrial chic and snug hideaway. Two bedrooms look like they have been pulled straight from the pages of an upscale interiors magazine and come complete with sleek styling; luxe linens and a black-tiled ensuite will make you wish you could take them home with you. The ensuites also feature dreamy walk-in showers and beautiful local toiletry products.

On your first morning, tear yourself away from the comfy confines of your bed – but not before you spend five minutes working up the will to do so – and pad out to the sleek kitchen. If you’re lucky, your partner or one of your travelling companions will have already made a start on preparing the gourmet breakfast provisions. If you’re the first up however, the perfume of sizzling bacon and frying eggs will soon lull your friends or family out of their slumber.

Spark the villa’s corner combustion heater early on cool mornings and allow the gentle heat to fill the space as you sip a coffee or steaming mug of tea. You might flip through the detailed compendium, which covers to-dos and must-sees in the area, or pick up a novel or autobiography from the stack of books.

When you’re fed, watered and ready for the day, venture out to discover the beauty of the Tasman Peninsula. There are walks and tracks aplenty, as well as gorgeous lookout points, picnic spots and photo-worthy sights. Those keen to play explorer could head up towards the East Coast, or take the ferry from Triabunna to Maria Island. The heritage streetscapes and waterfront of Hobart are less than an hours’ drive away, and historic Port Arthur is also within easy reach.
