'The Depot' is a truly unique living space owned by an Australian artist and her husband. It is one of Scone's best kept secrets;- the house is a converted army depot that was built in the 1940's,hence its name.
The depot has been created fusing colour, art and living through an eclectic array of paintings, antiques and interesting bespoke objects gathered from around the world and in particular from Buenos Aires, Argentina where the owners resided for many years.
The result is a cool bohemian chill out cluster of warm and inviting living spaces, surrounded by a lush and private parkland garden. Fruit trees,vegetable and herb gardens are sheltered beneath a canopy of oak, plane and jacaranda trees.
Aside from the art, colour and style of the owners other unique aspects of 'The Depot' are the massive living spaces, enormously high ceilings and garden facing aspect of the house away from the street, giving absolute privacy. Enticing eating stations and lounge spaces scatter the main,open plan areas with four enormous and spacious bedrooms in opposite ends of the house.
'The depot' is totally arresting, yet at the same time calming ,very engaging and welcoming;- as is the art. This is a very personal, special and creative space made to be loved and enjoyed.
