The clean country air beckons from this pristine French-inspired homestead in the hills near Melbourne, only an hour’s drive from the CBD and 10 minutes from the charming Victorian hamlet of Woodend.

Home to many beautiful rock formations and waterfalls, including the famous Hanging Rock, as well as stunning hillside wineries, the area offers a premium rural lifestyle opportunity.

Set across more than 27 acres, this idyllic property is comprised of two residences and plenty of luxurious amenities.

The authenticity of ‘Hawthorne Farm’ is evident upon entrance; antique French oak doors with Italian-made Pitella handles and reclaimed antique terracotta tiles from Lyon greet you. Moving through the house, symmetrically laid-out open-plan living, dining and kitchen areas include French Cheminee Philippe fireplaces.

These main living areas connect to large studies with verandah access and enormous main bedrooms with luxuriant ensuite facilities. The main bathroom is furnished with Belgium tiles and an antique vanity and tapware from Perrin & Rowe and Brodware.

The ambience is rich with class and sophistication from the European oak floorboards to the exposed beams. French doors open out to the front verandah and bi-folds lead out onto al frescos under vine covered pergolas capturing views of the manicured gardens and the substantial parcel of fertile land the property sits on.

Rolling green grass surrounded by magnificent gardens lead to the Campaspe River on one side and to a French Parterre vegetable garden and permaculture food forest on the other. Sustainable living is the idea here, and the property also includes an orchard and a chicken coop.

A 5.2kW solar system with a Fronius inverter and two huge water tanks complete the green credentials, while a large second residence with two more bedrooms, another kitchen, bathroom and two enormous storerooms make excellent additional living quarters.

This pristine acreage comes with a price guide of between A$6.95 million and A$7,645,000.
