Garden designer Paul Bangay has listed the Stonefields estate, between Kyneton and Daylesford, with c$8-$8.8 million price hopes.
The 20.23 hectare holding at 20 Belty Drive, Denver, includes a four bedroom Tuscan themed residence with Stuart Rattle interiors and two studios – one fit out as a guesthouse, the other, an office.
A dramatic main garden spreading 1.6 hectares, with over a thousand plants and a hilltop pool, has been the subject of a book, Stonefields by the Seasons.
Much of the balance of the property is used for farming including cattle grazing.
Mr Bangay paid $320,000 for the land in 2004; with sale proceeds he intends to develop another estate in the Daylesford/Macedon Ranges region (story continues below).
Forbes’ Michael Gibson and Robert Fletcher are the agents.
Denver is about 100 kilometres north west of Melbourne.
Also this week, the Hepburn Shire Council controversially listed Daylesford’s c1928 The Rex cinema, after abandoning plans to turn it into a mixed-use community services based project with offices it would occupy.
