Bluegums Retreat, a well appointed bluestone house, set against a backdrop of native landscaping with countryside views and located a few minutes from the iconic Hepburn Bathhouse and Spa, is ideally positioned for your escape.

The space
The house is made out of bluestone and sandstone, built from an old bridge that was demolished in nearby Ballarat. Surrounding wide timber verandas overlooking the property that is set up for barbeques and entertaining.

The Ned Kelly wood firebox and gas fire warm the entire house and create a cozy and snug place for friends and family to spend time. Outside the old style swing seat and the hammock are great for curling up and reading a book, or taking an afternoon nap.

Most of the house construction is made from items, which have been recycled to save the environment.

The 3 bedroom, 2 bathrooms well appointed house is a wonderful retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city, and is lovely and peaceful with the sun rising and setting in full view of the main outlook from the house.

Fully refitted and refurnished over the last months, Bluegums Retreat provides a stylish and comfortable environment to unwind and relax.
Lie in bed at night and gaze at the stars in the heavens above through the moon window over the master bed.

The grounds have been recently re-landscaped with water friendly native planting sympathetic to the landscape. Look out in the garden for Henry the 10ft Emu and, little Bertie the Kiwi.
