Seville Estate by Welcome to Here


Nestled into the landscape of the Yarra Valley, a popular getaway for Melbourne locals and international tourists alike, is the beautiful Seville Estate. Comprising a winery, restaurant and family homestead that was first built in the 1970s, the accommodation was recently revived by Leora Mendelson of Interior Architecture practice Welcome to Here. Offering a place to unwind in a stunning contemporary space overlooking the pool area, native gardens and the distant hills to the west, I reached out to Leora to find out a little more about this inspiring project.

Leora says that although there was no formal brief, there was a strong focus to ensure the outcome was in-line with the brand and history of Seville Estate. "My intention was to create a timeless, luxurious, calming and relaxed accommodation that felt like a combination of a retreat and home." Minimal but by no means sparse, Leora's focus on materials, texture, space and detailing can be seen throughout. Using natural materials, Leora says the emphasis was on keeping the integrity of the materials, while highlighting and enhancing their natural beauty.

Marrying the original wooden ceiling boards with white-washed brickwork and new timber joinery, Leora has created spaces that are layered with richness and warmth. Further texture has been added with stone bench tops and brushed brass tapware.

The furniture and cabinetry features locally made and sourced pieces including dining tables by Made by Morgan and bathroom cabinets by Simon Wightwick. These sit alongside classic design pieces including the String Shelving SystemMattiazzi Solo Dining Chairs, the Lantern Pendant by New Works and Offset Tables designed by Philippe Malouin for Resident

With the beautiful Seville Restaurant (also designed by Leora) on the estate, and enough space to accommodate up to eight people, this really would be a dream weekend getaway with friends and family!
