A luxury home that has just hit the market in Mt Macedon has attracted Australia-wide attention.
The six-bedroom house at 768 Mt Macedon Rd was one of the most viewed homes on property website realestate.com.au from February 21-28.
Priced at $4-$4.4 million, the property named Lindenbury is nestled within the Golden Mile of grand garden estates with stunning country views.
Abercromby’s agent Jock Langley said the home had generated phenomenal interest from buyers throughout Australia and overseas.
“We have been run off out feet,” Mr Langley said.
“The email inquiry has been enormous.”
The property was a rare find and the owners’ pride and joy.
“It is one out of the box and has been painstakingly renovated from the ground up by the owners with spectacular results,” he said.
Originally built in 1984 by one of Victoria’s early settler families, the French provincial-style house is hidden behind imposing iron and bluestone gates.
A white gravel drive winds through lawns beneath century-old European trees toward the house, passing parterre gardens on the way.
The home has a modern designer kitchen plus multiple living and dining areas including a spacious lounge room with a marble fireplace and a conservatory.
“This is a stunning glass room that draws the garden into the house,” Mr Langley said.
There are numerous bedrooms in the house and above the double garage. The indulgent main bedroom sprawls on a private floor with an ensuite, walk-in wardrobe and french doors to a Juliet balcony.
The property is beautifully landscaped with English and native trees, and features a dry stone-walled courtyard plus an extensive outdoor entertainment area with a pool and pool house.
The grounds are bordered by Willimigongon Creek and include gravelled paths through bowers to nooks and retreats shaded by towering trees.
“The property is reminiscent of a resort,” Mr Langley said.
“And would be ideal as a permanent home or a weekender.”
Near village shops, the property is an hour’s drive to the Melbourne CBD and 25 minutes to Tullamarine International Airport.
The owners were moving overseas for employment purposes.
