Hillview Dairy was, as its name suggests, a dairy originally built-in 1905. The owner Simone has done a wonderful job transforming the former shell into a warm inviting space using recycled elements and antiques giving this home a lived-in feel.
“Nestled on top of a small ridgeline, Hillview Dairy, 1887 overlooks the stunning Mt Tallebudgera, Currumbin Creek and Valley landscape.”
We arrived with the afternoon sun streaming through the living room, a bottle of Shiraz and a lovely note from Simone welcoming us to her home. I was also very excited to find a jar of marshmallows ready for toasting over the outdoor firepit.
Hillview is full of those small details to make you feel immediately at home. Stacks of books with titles you can happily immerse yourself in. Handcrafted pottery lining the shelves, which we gladly used for our cheese platter on the second night. Rugs, throws and cushions on every available space give it that real lived-in feel.
