Set amongst beautiful private grounds of apple, peach, wattle and plum trees, only 1 minute stroll to stunning Lake Daylesford, and 5 minutes walk to the main street hub of Daylesford, Asterion (ruler of the stars) is a find for those seeking rest and relaxation in glorious spa town charm, comfort and style with all mod cons including good quality docking station, wide screen TV, dishwasher, washing/dryer combo, ducted heating, open fireplace and ultimate privacy for your spa retreat holiday away. If visiting with more than a couple, the bedrooms are located at either end of the house for privacy and time-out.

Polished floor boards throughout this stylish, 2 bedroom 1931 cottage, with open fireplace, ducted heating throughout, including three separate self-contained balconies for time out and contemplation. A large wooden kitchen table for writing, reading and entertaining. The kitchen opens through french doors onto a private mini orchard garden where the Sun sets over magnificent fruit and wattle trees with bird song.

Nestled next to Australian bush and Lake Daylesford itself, native bird watching in the garden is delightful and easy. Walk to Lake Daylesford at the end of the street or up to the main road, Vincent Street, for limitless local cuisine and lattes, and watch the world go by in this movie set- country town paradise.

And, of course, on a cloudless night, the star viewing from the backyard of Asterion is glorious!
