STORY

Robyn and Lindsay Moore purchased the land in 2000. Originally the property was part of a local disused dairy farm, the buildings were dilapidated, falling down and unused. 

It was Lindsay’s ambitious idea to transform the property into boutique accommodation to preserve some of the local agricultural architecture of the dairy region, and provide a unique architectural experience for people to come, stay and experience South Gippsland. It was also an opportunity for a ‘project’.

Daughter Andrea, was responsible for designing the unique architecture and aesthetic of the property.

The Cabin was built in the 70’s and was the first part of the project to be completed in 2017. Planning for the Barn and Dairy began 2016, with construction beginning in 2017 and completed around September 2019.

The larger part of the project, renovating the Barn and Dairy began with footprint of the existing buildings. Minimal additions, window openings and outlooks were designed with private views and separate access, so they could be used individually or all together.

Each of the spaces has its own aesthetic/ identity largely defined by a restrained materials palette. Although each project is different, there is also an underlying design language that flows through them all.

The nature of the project required the design to be resourceful, by applying somewhat ordinary materials in different ways.  The project is very honest and raw, everything that is added is considered, authentic and handcrafted.

We designed and made as much as we could with local materials and utilised our combined skills in the timber and steel work as much as possible. 

From the steel doors, through to the furniture, kitchens, baths, basins, furniture, light fittings and hardware.

Ross Farm is a place to unwind and for contemplation. It’s about taking in the outlooks, the natural light falling into the space, the breeze through the window openings, the natural materials and textures, aroma from the timber, the atmosphere and the ethos of one (or two) good chairs… everything that has been added has some meaning for us. 

We are really proud of what we have achieved and hope you truly enjoy the experience. 

For every stay at Ross Farm, a donation is made to cancer research and support in memory of our dearly beloved wife, mum and gran, Robyn Moore. Missed everyday. A true inspiration to us all.
