New Hepburn Treehouse a magical “haven in the hills”

Early this year, Australian actor Hannah Fredericksen decided to purchase her very own slice of heaven nestled in the hills of Hepburn Springs.

Performing six nights a week as part of Harry Potter & The Cursed Child (for those well-acquainted with the production, her roles include Moaning Myrtle, Polly Chapman, Fleur and Lily Potter Snr) she was seeking her own magical space where she could escape the hustle and bustle of city life and reconnect with nature.

‘I think having this beautiful refuge is game-changing for me in that it gives me a space to properly recharge, which does wonders for creativity,’ Hannah says.

‘There is something about arriving in the air out there that really forces you to slow down.’

Aptly dubbed The Hepburn Treehouse, Hannah made her newly-adopted home into an accommodation offering at the end of July, allowing travellers to also find repose within its walls.

‘I figured if I couldn’t be out there enjoying it myself, someone else should,’ she says. ‘I always wanted the space to be an escape for both me and others.

‘I think we all need a chance to run away from the city after the past two years and I couldn’t think of a better spot to take a breath.’

Peacefully tucked away in the hills and with Hepburn’s finest food and wine at your fingertips, Hannah describes The Treehouse as her ‘haven in the hills’.

Boasting floor-to-ceiling walls, a spa bath overlooking the lush outdoor landscape, and soaring A-frame ceilings, the home combines mid-century design with that of a Swiss-style chalet – creating a stay that is calm, rejuvenating and truly mesmerising.

‘My vision was a warm and inviting space which satisfied the eyes and the heart. Somewhere you felt relaxed and comfortable enough to sit on the couch in front of the fire with your feet up and a glass of wine in-hand, but also appreciate those finer comforts,’ Hannah says.

‘I’ll definitely be escaping out there between acting jobs and I’m really excited that I get to share it with other special guests too.’
