Property Description
Once in a lifetime... “Wairere Homestead's gardens were designed and built by Edna Walling, one of Australia's most influential landscape gardeners. Wairere Homestead was the first country garden designed and built by Edna Walling. Commissioned by Major and Mrs Rutledge in 1925 to surround Wairere Homestead, Edna lived on the property, during the 3 months of garden construction. The garden remains an absolute joy to behold throughout the seasons.
In true Walling style, the garden design provides superb views and intimate glimpses to the gardens from every window in the house. The gardens are a pure blend of natural landscape, dry stone feature walls, meandering stone paths and quiet, secluded nooks. Plantings of magnificent feature trees, shrubs and flower beds provide an endless array of nooks for peaceful, contemplative enjoyment in these sculpted botanic surrounds.
The original homestead unfortunately burned down in 1942 and the current home is sympathetically built on the original footprint, to create the comfortable family home that exists today, within this beautiful setting.
The spacious and light filled homestead features 3 separate living areas surrounding a central, chefs kitchen featuring new generation, quality stainless appliances.
4 Bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and broad return verandahs take full advantage of this charming setting. A gorgeous and separate fully s/c garden cottage, delightfully stone paved in-ground pool and lawn tennis court are nestled amidst feature lawns and the original trees.
Mt Buller and Mt Timbertop's twin peaks overlook the property, amidst the beautiful Boorolite Valley, close to vibrant Mansfield Township.
A further 16 acres approx. of gently undulating land with magnificent mountain views and large dam are fully fenced to 5 paddocks with several all-weather horse shelters and yarding to provide ample space for horses or farmyard friends. The dam and bore provide a consistent water supply to the, automated watering system for both gardens and stock.
Nestled within the rear gardens, original shedding continues to serve and remains directly adjacent to a kitchen garden and productive orchard. A new 4 bay workshop & vehicle shed with concrete floors and power provides easy access to Fielding Lane and the southern paddocks.
Edna Walling has provided beauty and form that transcends time with this elegant garden, in arguably one of her most beautiful country settings. Call John Canavan to discuss the properties details or to arrange your personal inspection. Your garden romance awaits.
