Graceburn House is the on-site accommodation for acclaimed Red Hill restaurant Tedesca Osteria. And just like a relaxed long lunch at Tedesca, a stay at Graceburn is a totally rejuvenating experience that will whisk you away from your day-to-day.
That’s thanks to the setting, overlooking 27 acres of rolling Red Hill farmland. It’s also thanks to the building itself – a charmingly restored 1940s weatherboard cottage. But most of all, it’s down to restrained but opulent interiors by architect, designer and co-owner Patrick Ness. Rooms have brightly patterned wallpaper, gold velvet drapes and are filled with an assortment of antiques from Ness’ personal collection, but the space never feels cluttered or too busy. Instead, Graceburn feels lived in and homey, while still remaining decidedly luxurious.
Graceburn sleeps eight, with three double bedrooms and one double bunk, and comes with a large kitchen, two bathrooms and a laundry. Plus, the bar, which operates on an honour system, is stocked with cocktails from Byrdi and The Everleigh. Each stay includes eggs from the farm, housemade sourdough and condiments for breakfast.
An adjacent self-contained studio, The Glasshouse, sleeps two and can be added to your stay or booked individually for a private luxury getaway. While this cottage is smaller, with a kitchenette but no cooking facilities, its freestanding clawed bath, in a lush conservatory-style room overlooking the farmland, more than makes up for it.
