Hillcrest House

Landscaped and terraced formal gardens set the stage for a world class residence blending a late 1800’s Victorian bluestone home with contemporary architecture. Hillcrest House is a sprawling estate with views of historic Clunes village in Central Victoria. One of Victoria’s most renowned and stylish country homes, Hillcrest House has been restored to showcase its stunning history together with a stylish blend of contemporary upgrades.

Crafted to the highest international standards, this superb residence provides an irreplaceable setting of rare sophistication and exclusivity. With Stuart Rattle inspired interiors, this immaculate home exudes warmth and a relaxed living style.

The perfect balance of formal, casual and entertainment areas are achieved from the floor plan flowing throughout both the historic and new sections of the home. The handsome, late Victorian bluestone wing of generous proportions features wide, sweeping verandas, and a stunning guest wing comprising 2 king size bedrooms, an expansive lounge with open fire place, kitchenette and luxurious shared bathroom. This area is ideal for family and/or guests, as a separate apartment with its own entrance.

Downstairs, the main bedroom suite has a fabulous walk-through robe and an en-suite with freestanding stone bath. The new and double glazed part of the home is luxurious, functional and seamlessly integrated. The bespoke kitchen and butler’s pantry combine Carrara marble with country style painted cabinetry and elite appliances including 2 Aga ovens.

The living room showcases an open fireplace with hand carved timber surround, antique light fittings and French doors opening to the garden. A home office, fourth bedroom with en-suite and large laundry with ample storage and external access complete the home.

The residence is well-appointed with every conceivable luxury including zoned hydronic floor heating to the entire ground floor, Carrara marble flooring and walls to en-suite and bathrooms, Italian stone floor tiles, imported window furnishings and pure wool carpets. Hand blown glass light fittings showcase seamlessly with a collection of antique European pendants. Externally over 13,000 recycled Hawthorn blue bricks were sourced for the new extension, recycled timbers from Port Melbourne Pier formed the pergola and the wrought iron gates were imported from France.

There is a 5-car garage (including 2 car stackers), large store room, security monitoring, TV and CAT 5 cabling to most rooms, NBN connection, solar panels with battery storage and bore water supply. The tiered, landscaped gardens fed by an automated watering system are an absolute joy. Sit under the expansive wisteria covered pergola for summer entertaining and enjoy the fruit garden with quince, peaches, plums, nectarines, lemons, limes, oranges and apples, vegetable beds, a daffodil walk, the pond lawn and weaving hedge.

Hillcrest House is located only 1.5 hour’s drive from Melbourne and less than 30 minutes to Daylesford, Ballarat and Creswick. The historic village of Clunes has a proud gold mining history and boasts an original and charming streetscape, the scene of many movies and TV series.
