The Homestead at Lake Hayes Living

Dating back over 100 years, The Homestead at Lake Hayes has maintained its historical integrity while also finding new life as a luxurious holiday home for the modern age. The interiors are endlessly elegant and the outdoor areas don’t pale in comparison, with facilities ranging from a life-size chess board to a private pool and from a petanque court to a floating fireplace.

Living Room

The living room is a beautiful white themed space which gives elegant nods to the property’s historical roots while still maintaining a smart modern look. The room is furnished with sleek sofas arranged around a woodburning fireplace, with the room lit up by an exquisite modern light fixture. A vintage grand piano adds even more elegance to the space. There’s also a more relaxed living area with a white sofa, a fireplace and a flatscreen TV. The villa also features a stately library room with stacked bookshelves and a work desk perfect for catching up on some emails.

Dining Room

True to the villa’s sprawling layout, the property offers multiple dining areas to choose from. The living room is fluidly adjoined by the villa’s kitchen which is followed by a relaxed dining area furnished with a beautiful marble top dining table surrounded by eight blush pink chairs. There is another dining area in the covered, connecting area between the villa’s two pavilions, flanked by a walk-in wine cellar and a glowing fireplace.

Garden

The villa’s rambling grounds offer ample opportunity for drinking in the spectacular views and enjoying the great outdoors. Enjoy a dip in the villa’s private pool, followed by a game of chess on the property’s human sized chess board. Before settling in for a round of drinks in the outdoor lounge with its stunning floating fireplace, why not challenge the whole group for a round of petanque on the villa’s own group?
