Hermit House Cottage near Mount Dandenong, only 35 km east of Melbourne is a secluded hideaway set in a 95-year-old botanical wonderland, with stately pines, oaks, beech trees, blooming wildflowers, dahlias, columbines camellias rhododendrons and azaleas. In former times the rhododendrons ran riot in the garden, theeir interlocking branches blazing pink, red and purple flowers closing over the long drive. When renovating and redecorating the cottage, we opened up the garden to let the sun filter into the house, but were careful to preserve its peace and seclusion.
Once inside there's no trace of the busy world beyond the garden.
