RURAL RETREAT IN A PRIVATE COUNTRY PROPERTY
The property is secluded with established trees and gardens giving you and your family total privacy. The property is also conveniently positioned in central Red Hill, allowing easy access to restaurants, wineries, orchards, olive groves, horse riding, hiking trails and cafes.
Stay at Cloudland and indulge in rural life to create your own memories with good company, fresh food and fine wine.
Along a country road in the middle of lush hinterland lies a country house with Red Hill history.
Mr. and Mrs. Jarman visited Red Hill in the early 1900s from Devon, England to find land to plant an apple orchard. They found rich soil in Red Hill and planted their orchards and built their family home in 1921. The home was named Devonia and was the central part of the original Devon Farm estate, the largest apple orchard on the Mornington Peninsula which spread along Mornington Flinders Road from Noels Gallery to Ten Minutes by Tractor. These restaurants were once homes to their children.
Today, the home is called Cloudland and retains its original Craftsman style architecture and established gardens and has also been lovingly renovated over the years. The tractor shed has been converted to a games room, the horse stable is now a cottage and the gardens now include a swimming pool, cubby house/playground, farm paddocks, vegetable garden, rose arbor with rural views and more.
The house has 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a renovated kitchen, large entertainment space and two separate living spaces with fireplaces. The house retains its original architectural features including high decorative ceilings, fireplaces and leadlight windows with plenty of natural light.
Enter the home and you'll find the "fireside" sitting room with large open fireplace, library, sofas with windows that look out onto the front garden and fountain.

Leading from the entertainment space to the outdoors is a covered terrace with an outdoor dining setting for 10 guests and a BBQ which overlooks the rear lawn, garden out to the rural views across the valley.
Cloudland has bright cream interior and an eclectic mix of antique and modern furniture from New York, Asia and Australia. Some walls house ornate mirrors and the light fixtures include original lamps, Italian Murano glass chandeliers and sconces along with a chandelier dubbed the Russian Wedding Cake made by a local artist.
