Property reviewed by Stephanie Mikkelsen

From the outside, Green Retreat Passive House has the look of a 21st-century barn; clad with Silvertop Ash and solar panels. Yet rather than hiding hay bales, this retreat in Hepburn Springs comprises a modern two-bedroom escape fitted out with polished concrete floors, exposed lighting pendants and sleek surfaces. Beneath its shiny finishes are a slew of eco-friendly extras: triple-glazed German windows, smart climate control, a 9-star energy rating and a rain tank.

Green Retreat Passive House is made for two couples or a small family to share. The king bedrooms are mirror images of one another; both with an open ensuite with a spa bath. Each bedroom also has its own TV, giving guests the chance to put their feet up and watch a movie if the TV in the main living room is currently occupied by another of your group. Happily, the lounge’s sofa is only steps from the benches of the galley-style kitchen so top ups of popcorn, pretzels or another glass of wine are never too far away.

Outside, guests can soak up the sun’s rays by perching themselves in a strategic position beneath a timber pergola. This serene spot may become a go-to for a few minutes’ morning mediation, afternoon drinks or some quiet time. If you are keen to see Hepburn Springs, the town’s scene of casual cafes and restaurants is within walking distance. Those with ears that prick at the mention of ‘pampering’ can book in for a treatment at one of the famed mineral springs spas.

Green Retreat Passive House can be booked in conjunction with Greenlands to cater for up to 10 guests.
