If you have the urge to explore the region, you have so many sensational options starting right outside the gate - the Black Spur, the Acheron Way, Marysville, Cathedral Range, Yarra Valley to name a few. At the same time Chestnut Glade is completely satisfying as a relaxing and romantic hideaway with a crackling fire, a spa with views and tranquil seclusion.

Property Description:
The 20-acre property is planted with over 400 chestnut trees on 10 acres, with another 10 acres of bush. Nearby Mt Dom Dom looms large on the edge of the mountain backdrop to the orchard. Although part of the Great Dividing Range, this area is known unofficially as the Mystic Mountains.

The cottages, named after chestnut varieties, have the unique orchard setting all to themselves. The architecture is distinctly contemporary with great emphasis on space and light.

The two bedroom Lucenti Cottage (pictured above and right) has a large bay window area at the front and a raised deck with the barbecue. The lounge space, with its big solid couch, has the benefit of the bay window outlook as well as the focal brick fireplace. The dining and kitchen areas are part of the same open floor plan. Polished floors, colourful modern art and sleek, timber and glass furniture contribute to the contemporary feel. The luxury bathroom is a statement in modern aesthetics, with floor lighting through pebbles around the stylish vanity unit. The corner spa has picture windows to the outside and slim venetian blinds to adjust the aperture as desired.

The one bedroom Nanking Cottage has a distinctive oriental theme and features green walls. The furniture and decor is a mix of elegant modern style, traditional Asian items, and 'east meets west' fusion. The spa overlooks a Japanese courtyard garden.
