Highfields, 99 Crooked Road, Romsey

Highfields

A jewel of the Macedon Ranges featuring an exquisite and imaginative all season's botanical oasis set on a versatile 14 acres with few parallels in country Victoria.

Totally secluded, the understated residence comprises 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 sitting rooms, dining room, huge rumpus room, plus there is a detached guest bedroom and bathroom. The state of the art 351 sqm stable complex will satisfy the most discerning buyer offering 5 stables, wash bay, tack room, bathroom facilities and ample additional rooms for further potential accommodation (STCA).

The serene garden was originally designed by Rick Eckersley (of Eckersley Garden Architecture) and features in Australian House & Garden: Great Australian Gardens. It beautifully compliments the fully tiled in-ground pool, outdoor entertaining area and granitic tennis court. Features include a stunning Box Elder canopied entrance driveway, sweeping lawns, gracious 100 year old pines and other mature exotic trees under planted with masses of bulb, perennial and annual varieties.

Substantial infrastructure includes a new power transformer and underground 3-phase supply, new aerobic wastewater treatment plant and grey water irrigation system. Ample water is supplied from the high volume bore supported by an ornamental rainbow trout stocked lake and small dam. The 370 tree olive grove currently produces in excess of 300 litres of superior quality extra virgin olive oil. Rich red volcanic soils are synonymous with the district with 4 paddocks, all with rolling rural vistas being ideally suitable for cattle, sheep or horses.

Highfields is a rare opportunity, which will deliver a superior quality of living only 50 minutes from Melbourne.
