A bohemian escape only 45 minutes from the city! Our one bedroom villa has a pool, banquet room, bedroom retreat, library and gardens that sing of the seasons. A place to wander. A magical sanctuary for those who see the world with artful eyes.
House designed buy McLashen and Everest
Even before you cross the threshold, Ttekceba Villa is a total experience unlike any other Dandenong Ranges accommodation. Whether you are looking for a romantic weekend getaway, wedding night accommodation, or simply a few days escape from citylife, Ttekceba is a place of fascinating beauty and exotic inspiration. Instead of just a cosy cottage in the Dandenongs, you can indulge yourself in a sublimely spacious self-contained villa, presented in a worldly yet distinctly personal style, complete with swimming pool.
Romantics, artists, lovers of beauty and nature, find treasured experiences in this very unique country hideaway. Far reaching views over rolling hills to lakes and bays can be seen from the dining room and the garden. Yet the contemporary, architect-designed villa is barely visible amidst a glorious garden of indigenous and European plants.
Like a gallery, the house is designed as a subdued backdrop for an explosion of creative expression, in this case, the owner's wonderful collection of mementos and furniture from her European ancestral homes and a life full of travel.
Greenery inside and out, mirrors and glass, confuse the boundaries in this deliberately sensory space. Where no curtains obstruct the view.

A fully equipped kitchen is waiting for you to cook up a storm.

Altre cose da evidenziare
The owner, Veronika, has a love of animals as well as plants. Sadly the most exotic of her animals, a white peacock (above) was a victim of foxes some years ago.
A flock of Egyptian and Chinese geese patrol the grounds in stately fashion. An abundance of more typical feathered friends stop in on their travels, including wood ducks, spoon bills, herons, rosellas, cockatoos, kookaburras, the list goes on...
Several miniature shetland ponies call Ttekceba home and enjoy grazing through the garden when allowed.With 400 arces of pristine bush on one side, it's no surprise that native visitors appear quite regularly. Eastern Grey kangaroos and the smaller wallabies can visit at dusk, while echidnas, wombats and possums may be seen from time to time. Unwelcome guests to roses and citrus trees are a family of 5 deer.
The powerful owl a nocturnal visiter on the roof sometimes scars guests with its loud footprints, being the the largest of Australian owl with 65 cm in hight and a wing span of 4 feet
There are no curtains but a 3 m wall around the bedroom for your privacy
