The estate had it's own bridge across the Yarra River and many buildings dotted the grounds. Some of the original buildings were destroyed by fire but the ‘Millgrove Mansion’ (as it is referred to by the locals) was untouched. The Servants Quarters, a long building with quirky and unique rooms still remains, along with the Old Barn, the ‘Firehouse,’ and the hidden spook cellar.
Things to do: The Yarra River, hiking and walking tracks that cover the area, the Upper Yarra Reservoir & Picnic Area, walk or ride the O'Shannessy Aqueduct Trail, cycle the Lilydale to Warburton Rail Trail, go to the Mountains - Mount Donna Buang Mountain range on our doorstep, quirky cafes and weekend markets, great cycling roads and paths, peace and quiet, wineries, golf and more.
(Not having to listen to other guests in the same building is a bonus!)
Busses run regularly 400 meters from our property. They are very easy to ride (we can point out the bus stop that sits beside the Yarra River).
We encourage guests to have as much fun as possible while they stay with us. But in the best interests of all of our guests loud noise should be kept to a minimum. Please no smoking inside the Villa.

We recently moved out to the Yarra Valley for a more peaceful and quiet life amidst the trees, mountains and rivers.
We have a one year old boy and both work part time in marketing and public relations.
We love to ride bikes on the trails and roads here in the countryside and up the mountains.
