On the outskirts of Meeniyan, this 1960s dairy farm has slowly evolved into an impressive design-led farmstay.

Interior designer Andrea Moore (Studio Moore) is behind the project, which turned three disused farm buildings into contemporary lodgings with Japanese and Scandinavian sensibilities.

Moore designed many of the furniture and fixtures (including bathtubs, lighting and hardware), and her veterinarian father Lindsay helped build them by hand. Additional pieces were custom-built locally.

The Cabin is a simple farm cottage that’s been transformed with locally sourced cypress, tactile concrete, raw brass, eucalyptus-green paint, smooth leather and cosy linen. The lean-to was converted into a bathroom with a deep wooden tub.

Each detail was meticulously chosen for aesthetics, function and comfort. There’s a full kitchen and small larder stocked with pantry staples, eggs courtesy of Ross Farm, and leafy additions harvested from the veggie patch.

The bedroom is inviting with InBed linen sheets, linen robes and slippers, and the lounge is set up for reclining with a book or simply soaking up the view. If you need more space, the alternate residence The Barn sleeps four and The Dairy sleeps six.

It’s a one-kilometre walk into town, or borrow a mountain bikes to take the Great Southern Rail Trail.
