Why would you book me?

  • I am your perfect place for peace and quiet.


Is it your dream to escape to the country?  Even if it is only for a weekend?

Joie de Vivre is that dream escape to your own little piece of paradise with a quiet rural atmosphere and a picturesque 10-acre vista in Red Hill, in the heart of the peninsula's wine region.

Located down a quiet country lane with a tree-lined driveway and sunny northerly aspect, Joie de Vivre will capture your heart and revive your soul.

The 10 acres have plenty of spots to relax and unwind.  There are walks through orchards of olive trees, walnuts, macadamia, apples, pears, nectarines and citrus.  There is also a watercourse and spring-fed dam (all securely fenced) with a little jetty if you want to sit and ponder the meaning of life while watching the fishes swim by.

For the more active among us, there is a tennis court and a commercial-grade children's playground for the kids to be entertained for hours.

The property is located right next door to Main Ridge Estate and across from Main Ridge Dairy, two wonderful gourmet destinations that you don't even need to get in the car and drive to.  The vines for Main Ridge Estate are in fact at the back door of this property.

This brand new build is centred around the magnificent views of the property and the surrounds.  It has picture windows all on one side of the central living area to always take in the views.  Whether you are cooking, eating or relaxing you get to gaze at the scenery.

Living Areas

The living area is made up of an L- shaped large room with picture windows.  As you enter the property through a small entry you walk into the formal lounge with an elevated french cast iron fireplace as the centre of this relaxed space which is decorated in a French Provincial/Hamptons Style.  This cosy lounge is perfect to sit and relax with a glass of local Pinot and a good book or to engage in a wonderful conversation with friends and family.

The kitchen is made up of a huge island bench in the centre of the space again with those magnificent views.  The perfect space to cook and chat with kitchen stools where friends can keep you company.

At the end of this space is a dining table with sliding doors out to the deck and the BBQ Area.

The around the corner in the L shape is a second living area with large SMART TV and space to relax.  Here you will also find a perfect space to keep the kids entertained with toys and a huge wall painted with blackboard paint.
