About this space
A gorgeous 2.5-acre property nestled in a special part of Red Hill South.
With views towards western port bay, the property gently slopes and opens up to a Tuscan inspired garden. The garden design was another unique collaboration between renowned landscape designer Paul Bangay and Melbourne based architect Russell Casper of Casper Architecture & Design.
The garden is the properties’ distinctive and unique feature, with its brand new and striking swimming pool and surrounds, stone clad walls and farm fencing. When sitting within the pool area you can choose to sit below the iron bark pergola, banquette seating or lounge under an umbrella on one of the sun lounges.
For lunch you can walk to the gorgeous citrus garden, with specimen citrus trees and a purpose built pergola, softly covered in bamboo to protect you from the sun, and lemon trees to each post on your side. Antique French olive bins are planted with rosemary and welcome you to the space, with specially crafted furniture designed specifically for the area.
After lunch wander down the main lawn path flanked by French Lavender, an axis centred in the olive grove, with steel edged steps, a favourite of Bangay’s and olive trees to either side. Then head to the vegetable garden to pick your favourite fresh herbs and vegetables or take a break under the gorgeous pergola laden with a climbing grape, a Moroccan table and chair set, perfectly placed to enjoy the garden.
Many of the fruit trees are over 30 years old, apples, pear, plum, apricot, limes and lemons, as well as one of the peninsula’s finest fig trees add to the charm.
The house itself is quaint and comfortable, beautifully decorated with a casual and family feel in mind. Soft furnishings, art and artefacts adorn the house as it looks towards the rose and hydrangea garden to the north, while opening up to the Italian garden to the south.
At night the beautifully lit garden provides dramatic and somewhat romantic spaces to enjoy a glass of Prosecco as the suns sets over the west, while the ducks quietly splash in the dam surrounded by more fruit trees and native Australian shrubs and trees.
