Any great home transcends its time and Sky High is such a home. An iconic piece of architecture, designed and built by local award winning builders Josh & Tik White of Spa Country Builders. Sky High is located on top of a ridge of 50 acres, directly in front of Mt Franklin, with dramatic views of the surrounding hills, farmland and bushland. Mt Franklin is a well known landmark known widely for it’s mineral water as well as its vicinity to Daylesford, which was recently voted the most popular small town weekend destination in Australia.
This is a space for wellness and rejuvenation. With 360 deg panoramic views, you can simply come to enjoy the uniqueness of this property with friends and family in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. Or dive a little deeper and use this stunning location and horizon views to contemplate a bigger vision for your life whilst using the ample space to bring in yoga or meditation practitioners or other wellness modalities to help guide you along the way. The home intimately engages with its context and climate, drawing on local traditions with the stone walls featured in the Mt Franklin district used in the living area and master bedroom.
Alternatively consider a special corporate mid week or weekend retreat. Sky High is perfect to host corporate groups and use as a motivational stay. An incredible 3.3m central dining table perfect for corporate meetings is made from an old tenpin bowling alley consisting of American maple timber. Work and relaxation can blend for an incredible stay.
The arrival point is via a central courtyard hub around which the other rooms radiate, including 4 king-size bedrooms with king split beds for flexible bedding arrangements that effortlessly cater to groups of friends, couples or families. European Oak and floor to ceiling windows with those breathtaking views will have you staying in bed gazing into the distance. A freestanding bath in the master and three exquisite bathrooms and a powder room cater to groups of eight.
The position of the living dining area with the centrepiece kitchen and stone fireplace, captures to full advantage the inspiring sunrises and equally breathtaking sunsets that create a dynamic play of light and colour over the idyllic landscape. The sculpted, hand forged finishes are all at work here: polished concrete hyper floor, concrete kitchen bench tops, bespoke, curved glass skylight and designer sink and tapware all combine to create a memorable space fro you to gather no matter what the occasion or journey.
You may never want to leave, and why not! Stay in and enjoy the wellness the space and facilities provided together with the ideal location. Long meandering or brisk walks up to Mt Franklin, returning for a dip in the saltwater plunge pool, following an afternoon of massage, yoga or meditation. Or you may simply want to enjoy the stunning kitchen, the fireplace, and a glass of wine and movie marathons! However should you want to utilise the space as well as explore the region, Daylesford, Castlemaine and all the villages and hamlets that surround are a stones throw away.
