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?
