HOME to the same family for 92 years, a historic Macedon Ranges property is sending a buzz through the top end of the market.
Priced at $2.4 million, Bullengarook Park is a 91.46ha landholding at 1539 Bacchus Marsh Rd, Bullengarook, 68km northwest of Melbourne.
Established in the mid 1800s and subdivided over the years, the original property once included the heritage-listed Tilley’s Hut, located nearby off Spottiswood Rd.
It is believed the hut was inhabited by an itinerant known as Tilley in the 1940s and was also used as a location site for a scene from the film The Man from Snowy River.

RT Edgar’s Rhys Nuttall said the country property at 1539 Bacchus Marsh Rd was attracting nationwide interest.
“The block is quite unique with a creek, dams and gullies,” he said.
“It backs on to forest and features a delightful garden.”
Mr Nuttall expected strong interest from Melbourne and interstate buyers.
“This is a chance to own a price of local history and to farm horses, sheep and cattle,” he said.
A cosy living area with an open fireplace.
Home to the Hobbs family since 1926, Bullengarook Park features a four-bedroom stone house built in the late 1800s.
It sits high on the ridge with views towards Melbourne, Geelong and the You Yangs.
Nestled behind a circular driveway and surrounded by European and native trees, the house is full of original period character.
High ceilings with exposed beams add character to the library.
The interior displays soaring ceilings, open fireplaces and ornate fittings.
A central hallway leads to four bedrooms, formal lounge and dining areas, a large library with bar, kitchen and meals area, plus an outdoor area with a farm outlook.
There is also a bathroom, study and laundry with access to a carport.
An original outbuilding.
With direct access to Pyrete forest and reserve, the property has dams, six main paddocks and a variety of outbuildings including old stables, milking and machinery sheds, cattle yards and crush, and a shearing shed.
“The property offers scope, flexibility and a way of life that sometimes is only dreamt of,” Mr Nuttall added.
