Transforming a humble 100 year old farmers cottage into a graceful three-bedroom guest house required close collaboration with clients to ascertain their expectations on the balance between quality, ambience and aesthetics. Michelle Leslie Studio merges each of these considerations delivering them among an interior informed by soft linens, vintage timbers, hand crafted elements and harmonious notes of sleek, elegant design.

A magnificent backdrop of the surrounding natural environment is ever-present, framed verdant outlooks beyond expanses of glazing are complemented by interior accents of locally sourced stone.

Rich materials and premium native timbers, beautiful Turkish pots, custom-made furniture and a gas fireplace create the perfect guest retreat. Large picture windows reveal the stunning vista from a space filled with class and grace.
