Farmer Smith Estate

All great rural properties arouse a strong reaction, and this private hilltop sanctuary is no exception. From its gated entrance, this property promises perfection, and delivers it in spades. Set on 100 acres, Farmer Smith Estate enjoys panoramic views across rolling countryside and vineyards in the Central Highlands between Kyneton, Castlemaine and Heathcote.

A true expression of the Australian vernacular, the residence with heated swimming pool caters to the way we seek to live in a country environment, with all the trimmings of city luxury. This property offers an unparalleled lifestyle, multi-functionality, and is income generating all whilst being a comfortable commute to Melbourne.
Farmer Smith Estate includes a beautiful, architecturally designed 340 sqm residence, 2 high yielding accommodation retreats, and a 10-acre boutique vineyard; reinforcing the rural idyll with breathtaking 360-degree views.

Beautifully detailed and generously scaled, the family residence draws the eye through expansive windows across the stunning landscape. The interior is a celebration of well-chosen and finished materials, with polished terrazzo floor and double glazing throughout to ensure year-round comfort.

A highlight is the alfresco dining/outdoor entertainment area where the shimmering water of the heated saltwater pool forms a stunning horizon against the sky. The huge chefs kitchen/dining area is the core of the home. With 3 generous bedrooms, 2 exquisite bathrooms (including ensuite), a 2nd living room, a library/games room, office/4th bedroom, family-size laundry, cellar, butler’s pantry, and a generous (55 sqm) double garage.

The property also includes 2 oversized, income-producing accommodation retreats aptly named Sunset and Sunrise, thoroughly booked on Air bnb throughout the year and generating ‘5 Star’ reviews. Each retreat has a huge open plan kitchen/ living environment, large main bedroom, ensuite, bathroom/laundry, and an outdoor spa. The retreats abound with character and personality and are beautifully styled, whilst maintaining a strong connection to the landscape, offering stunning rural vistas.

Positioned between the guest retreats, the 180 sqm cellar door/shed has a high-pitched roof and concrete floor. The cellar door is not in operation by the current owners, but its spatial aspects and functionality are only limited by the imagination. A storeroom, staff toilet and pump room for the vineyard are also housed here, and 90,000 litres of rainwater storage capacity are fed from the huge roof area.

The income-producing vineyard is the visual hub of the Estate, operating since 2003/4, with approximately 4.5 hectares (11 acres) under vine. In 2006, under the guidance of Alan Cooper (Cobaw Ridge Estate), the first shiraz was released earning 93 points from renowned industry doyen, James Halliday.

Well located only 15 mins’ drive to Kyneton, 40 mins to Daylesford or Bendigo, and 1 hour 15 minutes to Melbourne. Whether you live here for the exceptional lifestyle, to earn an income, make wine, or simply enjoy the serenity… the choice is entirely yours.
