Lush, green and totally yours: Shearer’s Hill is a retreat on the fringe of Victoria’s Yarra Valley that gives its guests their own piece of this stunning region. The views across rolling hills and farmlands seem endless, so it’s little wonder why you’ll find yourself gravitating towards one of the verandah-perched outdoor seats. Soon enough, you’ll imagine yourself sitting here with a cup of coffee, your favourite tea blend or maybe a glass of wine – poured from a bottle picked up in the nearby Yarra Valley, of course.
Shearer’s Hill is the just the kind of house that you want when headed away with the family or a group of friends. Three of the bedrooms have queen beds, and a fourth bedroom has two sets of bunks – the natural go-to for kids or young-at-heart adults. Two bathrooms eliminate long lines for morning showers, unless someone snaps up the master bathroom and its freestanding clawfoot bathtub first.
The free-flowing floorplan of Shearer’s Hill means your companions will tend to congregate in the central living space, dining room and kitchen. Each space is a draw in itself; reclining on the lounge’s leather sofas, feasting on a spread at the 10-seater dining table, pottering about the huge kitchen, pouring drinks and putting the finishing touches on dishes. Musicians can tinkle the keys on the corner-tucked piano, or book-lovers can thumb through the pages of one of the novels sitting pretty in the case in the separate library room.
One must-have experience while you’re here is dining in the Shearer’s Shed, the original shearing shed from the property’s former farming life. This rustic space has a barbecue, open fire, bar and running water.
