Few pastoral homes offer the same heightened levels of lush greenery and luxury presented in this private and privileged estate.

The 20-acre estate overlooks a landscape of Flinders’, in Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula, purest grazing land and water views towards The Nobbies and Phillip Island.

The farm gate entrance leads one through a rich working organic vineyard and established gardens to a stunning oasis.

The property boasts 7-bedrooms, 4-bathrooms and a 2-car garage spread among a multitude of structures around the expansive plot.

The main farmhouse offers a modern take on rural-chic through the heady combination of blackened timbers, lofty ceilings, exposed beams and rustic tiling, retaining plenty of character.

The heart of the home is the kitchen, complete with Liebherr refrigeration, Aga, V-Zug, Asko and Miele appliances throughout and a temperature-controlled cellar tucked away nearby

Within the main house are five of the seven bedrooms, including the stunning main with large walk-in-robes and an oversized ensuite that offers views of the landscape from the luxurious bathtub.

While the main house offers many luxuries — including hydronic heating, air conditioning, heated bench tops and floors, open fireplaces throughout and home automation systems — it is the property’s limbs that steal the show.

From the kitchen and attached open plan living comes an entertaining area complete with built in barbecue and pizza oven while further exploration will take one down to the mod grass tennis court and heated self-cleaning pool and spa complemented by the large fire pit area.

Built as the ultimate entertaining the property is the Mornington Peninsula’s ultimate private amusement centre with the ‘party barn’, separate to the main house, fitted with sunken leather lounges, a double-sided Philippe Cheminee open fire.

Also here is a top of the range golf simulator, a selection of traditional and electronic games, and fully automated bowling alley. Large barn doors and windows open to an outdoor entertaining area that’s complemented by a moonlight cinema that brings the grounds to life.

In addition to the long list of mod-cons comes a two-bedroom air-conditioned villa, located within the eucalypts that provides ideal year-round guest accommodation or executive home office.

Of course, the property is a working farm, with a vineyard and livestock, the latter of which are protected via a fox-proof enclosure for chickens and goats and an additional two paddocks for pigs, donkeys and alpacas.

The property is listed with Sotheby’s International Realty Mornington Peninsula’s Rob Curtain (+61 418 310 870). Price guide; $27.5 – $30 million. melbournesothebysrealty.com

When people talk about making a seachange, chances are this is the kind of property on the NSW South Coast that they have in mind.

Open for inspection for the first time this Saturday, 24 Point Street Bulli offers rare absolute beachfront, with never-to-be-built-out north facing views of the ocean. Located on the tip of Sandon Point, this two-storey property is a surfer’s dream with one of Australia’s most iconic surf breaks just beyond the back wall.

On the lower floor at street level, there are three bedrooms and two bathrooms, including a family bathroom and an ensuite in the master suite. A fourth bedroom is on the upper floor, along with the main living area, and is serviced by its own bathroom. 

While this would make a spectacular holiday home, it is well equipped for day-to-day living, with a spacious gourmet kitchen and butler’s pantry set into the articulated open plan living area on the first floor. A separate media room to the street side of the property on this level provides additional living space. 

Every aspect of this property has been considered to take in the light and views, with high ceilings internally and spacious, north facing decks on both levels to take in views of rolling waves. If the pull of the ocean is irresistible, it’s just a 100m walk to feel the sand between your toes.

The house is complemented by a Mediterranean, coastal-style garden, while the garage has room for a workshop and two car spaces.

An easy walk to Bulli village, the property is a 20 minute drive from the major hub of Wollongong and just over an hour to Sydney.
