Felons Corner by Van Diemen Rise.
90 acres of dark forest, lofty views and rolling meadows overshadowed by a brooding mountain-scape.
Out of the tree-line, a boutique cabin is worked into the fabric of the wilderness and walks the dangerous divide between hunting hideaway, industrial chic and unapologetic luxury.

The space
The game’s afoot.
The stage is set and it’s low-light and high-end.

Everything here is raw; from the aged timber floors to the Icelandic sheepskins. Up-cycled, exposed beams and windows from the existing dwelling have been carefully restored and curated to frame an intimate interior, with all corners considered.

Expansive French doors seduce the tree canopy right into the living space. Swing them wide in summer and enjoy the twilight cacophony of birdsong or keep the Tasmanian winter chill at bay within the circle of firelight from the wood-fire.

Exposed beams frame a lofty ceiling where, up a flight of bespoke stairs the mezzanine awaits to embrace you. Sink into leather, sip from crystal and laze in buttery-soft linen. Here, intimate encounters are encouraged and sleep ins are mandatory.

A fully equipped kitchen allows for the culinarily inspired and leads onto the large deck and outdoor dining area.

The east wing of the cabin houses a full laundry, bathroom with claw-foot bath and a lavishly appointed entertainment room where, we promise TV will be the last thing on your mind.

The light-filled master bedroom is a private space with French doors opening onto a view of the rolling grounds. Wake with the morning light and a pour-over coffee or spend the AM hours gently ensconced in linen and a good book.

Take a short stroll from the house to crest the top of the hill and get high on the panorama. Views of the Gog Range, Mount Claude and of course, stunning centrepiece of it all the gothic grey, mist hugged heights of Mount Roland.

End the evening with a cheeky goodnight in the outdoor deck-bath and watch the forest come darkly alive under a night sky un-adulterated by city lights.

Your kitchen amenities include large oven, gas stove top, Japanese pour-over kettle, toaster, full refrigerator (with freezer), pots, pans, oven trays and dishes.

Where you’ll be

Sheffield, Tasmania, Australia

The Sheffield region is termed the ‘gate-way to Cradle Mountain’ but it hides many more corners of beauty and discovery.

Felons Corner by Van Diemen Rise sits a mere 3minutes drive from the start of the Mount Roland trail climb, 7minutes from Wild Mersey bike trails, 30minutes from the culinary delight Tasmanian Food and Wine Conservatory to name just a few.

Contact your host for a curated list of little known but long remembered local discoveries.
