Fit for Kings and Queens of the mountain this grand old dame offers so much. Being one of the largest original houses in Derby she’s got plenty of sunlight and character.
Enjoy an apres ride drink with the view over Derby from the elevated veranda, dine on the two-tier deck in the garden and recount the day’s adventures in front of the fire in the sprawling lounge.
Open plan living and boho decor make this house glamourous enough to feel on holiday and comfortable enough to feel at home.
Poised on the slope of a hill, The Lazy Queen is surrounded by a lush garden and enough space to offer privacy from Main Street. The Queen was renovated and decorated with YOU in mind, so trust that it’s well-equipped for anything you get up to. From dealing with your muddy clothes when you’ve been out riding to straightening your hair after diving in the lake beside the floating sauna or staying home to relax and read a good book – we’ve got you covered.
The lounge room is decked out with big comfy couches. Light-filled windows face Derby’s iconic quarry slope, and high ceilings, and beautiful Tasmanian oak floorboards tell the story of its past as the elegant home of the town’s bank manager.
At night, crank up the new heat pump or gather around the log fire to share the day’s highlights and cast videos of them on the smart TV.
There’s room for everyone around the dining table. True to modern open-plan living, the dining room connects the lounge with the kitchen and creates a space for communal meals and sharing stories.
Huge glass doors open up to the deck, where black bamboo shelters from the wind while you soak up the last rays of sunlight. Create a BBQ sensation or just sit back and relax while watching the buzz of Main Street and the pretty view of the forested slope across the lake.
The kitchen is well-equipped and big enough to cook a proper meal in. A gas stovetop, oven, microwave, and extended benchtop space make it perfectly possible to enjoy at night with the team. Your caffeine fix is taken care of with an Expressatoria coffee pod machine.
All three bedrooms are decked out for your comfort with excellent mattresses, electric blankets, and hotel-quality linen.
Naturally, there’s plenty of room for your bike in the Queen’s stables. A neat wall-mounted storage system and secure lock-up will keep your bike safe, fully rested, and ready for tomorrow’s adventures. Should your bike need some TLC, there’s an outdoor wash station and an indoor grooming salon with tools and a bike stand. Conveniently, the bike stables also feature a basic laundry with a washer and dryer.
