Woodvale c1860

Without peer, this landmark property being offered for sale for the 3rd time in its history, provides the very best of country living. The grand Victorian homestead sits proudly amongst stunning grounds and rich farmland at the foothills of Mount Macedon, with breathtaking views from every room.

The land was selected in the 1840s by the Barker Family with the earliest buildings dating back to the 1860s. The Victorian homestead was built in 1884 and has recently undergone a transformation under the guidance of heritage architect Bruce Trethowan. Whilst paying homage to the past, today it is undoubtedly one of the finest homes in country Victoria. At the heart of the home is the grand central living room with breathtaking garden and district views and with a marble mantle and Cheminees Phillippe fireplace as its focal point.

The garden, although structured, appears effortless as it flows from garden rooms, courtyards and opened grassed areas and, in the best country house style, transitions seamlessly into the wider landscape. It was developed from a masterplan in 2005 and will continue to develop over time to be enjoyed for generations to come.

The totally independent manager's residence provides the opportunity for options as does the multiple shedding which includes the original stone barn and, quite possibly, the next project. There are 14 paddocks all with water, electric fencing and cattle yards supporting the current cattle operation. There is excellent water with no less than 3 bores pumping into tanks and then reticulated throughout the property and gardens.

Woodvale is located 5 minutes from the Woodend village centre and only 50 minutes from Melbourne CBD.

Land size: 51.60 Hectares.
