Description

INSPECT STRICTLY BY APPOINTMENT
Botanical treasures take time and should be discovered. Magical gardens evolve over a hundred years. Cameron Lodge built in 1886, and having since matured into a place of matchless beauty, is testament to this. An Indian Colonial mansion featuring wide, columned verandahs, grandly windowed with long views south and east, Cameron Lodge is renovated throughout. The kitchen/family area, enhanced by an Aga stove, is light-filled, looks over the garden and opens onto the swimming pool. A living and dining room of rosewood paneling features beveled windows and a baronial stone fireplace. All three bedrooms are twinned with marble ensuites, the main overlooking a vast swathe of country. Downstairs is a getaway consisting of wine cellar, TV Room and office. An independent guest wing of three bedrooms, all with ensuites and A/C, runs alongside the pool, their deck perching above a parterre garden enjoying uninterrupted views of majestic Mount Macedon. Behind the large pool is a large glass greenhouse, a five-car garage and extensive sheds.
Downhill from the main residence a spacious four-bedroom cottage, jeweled with historical detail while possessing all modernity, offers an opportunity for commercial hospitality.
On this loveliest mountainside the four hectare garden, containing botany from all corners of the earth, is lined by Turritable Creek running along its western perimeter. Under an array of sequoias, maples, oaks, copper beeches, elms et al, spaces are formally laid out and decorated with stonework. Walls and stairs join and divide, a tennis court, a Temple of The Winds, Roman Baths, a wisteria-covered pergola - keep moving and Cameron Lodge keeps offering new delights. No photo can capture its facets and flow. And to catalogue Cameron Lodge’s many fineries seems a slim accounting of the whole. It is, simply, one of Victoria’s undiscovered treasures.
Positioned within an hours drive to Melbourne CBD, a mere 25 minutes to Tullamarine International Airport and a stones throw from Mt Macedon village and stores.
