Builder, Richard Laughlin’s newest creation is a limestone rock home designed from a turn of the century Australian outback home with the decor of “Victorian Ranch”. Many of our guests have enjoyed Richard’s first creations, Das Jager and Anastasia. The aged metal roof on Diamond Bell is topped with a cupola. Lattice conceals the private front porch.
Inside this one room home is a wonderful queen-size bed with an extraordinarily unique Mission style head and footboard. An array of wonderful fabrics have been tastefully combined and layered to create an awesome duvet cover. To emphasize the bed, a red cloth is delicately draped on the wall behind the headboard using a large copper star and deer horns as accent pieces. In the middle of the room hanging from the glass cupola is a masterful chandelier adding that perfect touch of elegance to this rustic cabin. Natural wood ceilings are softened by the distinctive lavender walls. Limestone floors showcase an array of rugs including animal skins. The bathroom has a shower, and there is a fabulous antique vanity. The coffeebar has a microwave, small refrigerator and coffeemaker.
The large romantic whirlpool tub is surrounded by a collection of antique mirrors. Double doors lead to a “grouse” porch and courtyard. Cedar fencing surrounds the courtyard creating a true sense of privacy. As in Richard’s previous creations you will find an outdoor shower (not available in the Winter). There is also a charcoal grill.
Located only a few miles from Fredericksburg “in the bush” this romantic home is a “fair dinkum beaut”. As they say in Australia “give it a burl”, bring your “coldie” enjoy a “bludger” evening, and you will discover that your stay is “rapt”.
