Herald Sun - Property - - FRONT PAGE -

YOUNG gun de­vel­oper Nick Beck and wife Jo are sell­ing their his­toric coun­try es­tate at Mt Mace­don.

The couple bought the property, known as Der­ri­weit, for $2.8 mil­lion in Au­gust 2013, two months be­fore sell­ing their three-level fam­ily home in Brighton for $3.82 mil­lion.

The es­tate is one of the old­est in the re­gion, built in 1873 by pas­toral­ist Charles Ryan, whose el­dest child was renowned botan­i­cal il­lus­tra­tor El­lis Rowan.

Only a small part of the orig­i­nal home re­mains as the guest wing but it has been com­bined seam­lessly with an el­e­gant res­i­dence built in 2007. The home now in­cludes eight bed­rooms, five bath­rooms, a games room, me­dia room, cel­lar and a tur­ret that con­tains stairs lead­ing to four up­stairs bed­rooms, in­clud­ing the main with a stun­ning en­suite and large walk-in robe.

It sits on 1ha of botanic gar­dens and has lovely views over the val­ley and to the city sky­line from its el­e­vated po­si­tion 650m above sea level.

Unique Es­tates agents Ja­nine Lum and Ni­co­lette van Wi­jn­gaar­den are han­dling the pri­vate sale, with price expectations $3.75 mil­lion-plus.
