About this listing
Even the entrance to this historic property, which winds its way through the glorious mature garden will leave you spell bound. This 100 year + mature garden is guaranteed to get you 'way laid'. Then 'wow', the homestead appears as you emerge from the tree-lined drive. Totally private and sited in the centre of an expansive lawn, is this divine opportunity. In need of refurbishing, come and use all your decorating flair and transform this well loved home into the grand statement it once was. One can almost hear the jolly times of the past generations as they partake in the countless garden and dinner parties or the local Hunt Club setting off from the front lawn. Of course all the usual support buildings are present and a lawn tennis court. 15 acres is divided into four very picturesque paddocks with scattered mature trees for shelter. Complementing this spectacular property is a cleverly set out mature heritage garden. Lovingly tended by the current and past guardians of 'Westoe' ensuring future easy care a priority.
Predominantly planted in the most amazing assortment of specimen trees and shade loving plants. Steeped in History and ambiance. This rare opportunity with fabulous 'bones' is mostly in an original state. This is truly a rare opportunity. It could make a fantastic accommodation option as the main road is only 1.25kms away where a sign can be erected. Only two families have had the privilege of calling 'Westoe' home. Built by the Honourable Sir William Fox as his weekend home on 5,000 acres then sold to the current family 135 years ago. Even some of the trees can be dated to the actual day they were planted some 145 years ago.
Don't delay viewing this property as once it is gone it will be gone forever.
