Set in the Strathbogie Ranges, amid some of the biggest horse studs in Victoria, Garners is a stunning 86-acre property 90 minutes from the heart of Melbourne and just off the Hume Highway.
It boasts an award-winning 4-star James Halliday Shiraz vineyard of 4.5 acres watered by a large 5-acre lake. There’s also a fully-fledged fruit orchard and, if that isn’t impressive enough, the property also features 120 olive trees which produce gold medal extra virgin olive oil.
The impressive property also features five fully fenced paddocks, all with water. The Garners property also includes a nine megalitre water licence from its underground bore. The dam feeds the property by pumping water to an enormous underground storage tank, which is then fed off to various areas of the property.
Facilities include steel cattle yards and a double-bay, concrete floored machinery shed with an open double bay annex. The property also includes a swimming pool and a tennis court for your leisurely needs.
In terms of the house, Garners showcases a large two-story home built from locally quarried stone and fitted extensively with imported slate tiles on the roof and finished with Italian stone flooring throughout the house.
The house comprises four bedrooms, four bathrooms and a stunning large kitchen with a walk-in butler’s pantry.
The kitchen is finished with solid terrazzo benches, and features a new self-cleaning electric oven, gas cooktops and an inbuilt fridge/freezer.
The large downstairs guest bedroom includes a marble en suite and double French doors leading to the garden. The remaining three bedrooms are located upstairs and also feature en suites, making this property truly lavish.
The extra-large family room provides stunning views of the lake and hills beyond, and the property’s landscaped gardens which are surrounded by beautifully handcrafted stone walls. French doors spill out onto the bluestone decks which surround the house.
Terrazzo benches also decorate the roomy laundry that lead to the house’s theatre room and study.
Properties like this don’t come cheap, but what’s better than drinking your own wine?
