Other things to note
The Retreat started it's life as a working man's cottage in Tarraleah during the construction of the Hydroelectric Scheme in the 1930's. Transported to the property in the late 1990's, spent the next 20 years converted into a tractor shed. Two years ago my husband and I fell in love with and purchased this beautiful property, converting the tractor shed and creating a luxurious getaway for 2.
