Bushland hideaway with Scandi-inspired styling

Property reviewed by Stephanie Mikkelsen

The stillness of Victoria’s Spa Country collides with the mod styling of Scandinavian interiors at Wood For The Trees in Hepburn Springs. This two-bedroom hideaway sits on a one-acre block and comes surrounded by trees and bushland, making it a peaceful sanctuary for city breaks and weekend getaways.

Wood For The Trees is bright, modern and warm. The interior’s Scandinavian look is fresh and welcoming, with dark blues and muted pinks, blonde timbers and cosy textiles. Striking artwork, feature lighting pendants, and a mix of contemporary and retro-style furniture are scattered throughout, too.

Guests enter through the laundry and kitchen – complete with Smeg fridge, in keeping with the Scandinavian theme – and walk into the generous lounge and dining space. Your eyes will caught by the vast wooden deck beyond the sliding doors and, depending on the weather, you first move might be to open these doors to allow a gentle breeze to fill the house. Or, in winter, guests can get straight to lighting the wood-burning fire. If you choose the latter, be quick to claim the corner perch of the L-shaped couch and settle in for the night with Netflix and Foxtel.

Of a sunny morning, breakfasts are best enjoyed al fresco at the round café tables where you can sip coffee and nibble on toast corners while reading a morning newspaper or staring out across the expansive view. Like the idea of having a lazy brunch out? The main road of Hepburn Springs is a leisurely 15-minute walk away. You can also stroll down the road to Hepburn Bathhouse and Spa.
