This blue-ribbon property caters to every need of horse and human. The family home has been designed with a central open-plan zone incorporating a kitchen, casual meals, formal dining, family room and formal lounge and games room/bar. A flowing floorplan expands the living space to an expanse of outdoor entertaining and a sheltered below ground pool.

The kitchen features modern appliances, a fitted larder with stairs to the cellar and a timeless, neutral colour scheme. Double ovens, an induction cooktop and a dishwasher will delight those who love to entertain. A servery window to the alfresco entertaining area builds on the seamless indoor-outdoor design.

Parquet floors define the formal dining room and create a sense of occasion in a delightfully bright space, with views across formal gardens to the surrounding pastures. A sunken formal lounge enjoys similar panoramic vistas. The games room – with multi-purpose space, features a built-in bar and storage, with double doors that lead out onto the outdoor entertaining area. Nestled in one corner of the formal lounge, is a plush and private study.

A mirror-lined vestibule leads to the indulgent principal suite where a fully tiled ensuite, walk-in robe with bespoke cabinetry and a large bedroom fashion a calming retreat. Dual aspect glazing fills the bedroom with views of paddocks and the Escarpment: it is hard to imagine a more beautiful vision at the beginning of each day.

A separate wing at the opposite end of the floorplan contains three further bedrooms with built-in wardrobes and plantation shutters. A laundry/sewing room, two bathrooms, gym and a double garage complete this area of the home.

Reticulated lawns and gardens surround the home. A 15m x 12m workshop with 3-phase power, a shower, toilet, kitchenette, 1 tonne overhead gantry and built-in benches sits towards the western boundary.

With council approval for ten horses, both enthusiasts and professionals will appreciate an estate designed for a horse-centred lifestyle. The magnificent stable complex makes a striking first impression with its Olympic sized indoor dressage arena. The brick and iron complex, located on the eastern side of the property, has a 60 m x 20 m reticulated arena with post and rail fencing, a cover spanning 40 m and competition-standard floodlights, high bay lights, mirrors and a PA sound system.

The indoor area incorporates a 4 m concrete breezeway with sliding doors to front and back, five indoor brick stalls with automatic water bowls, rubber flooring and walk-out yards. A tack/feed room with sink, shelving, bridle hooks and saddle racks, a wash bay with hot and cold water and a crush, a toilet, shower, bunk room, laundry and storeroom fashion a full-service complex.

An Avalon stable block with two foaling boxes, large yards and two open stalls, a tack/feed room with lights, a second wash bay and automatic water bowls to all stalls, provide additional accommodation. At the western side of the driveway is a stallion box with an automatic water bowl and access to a large paddock. All twelve paddocks have automatic water bowls and electric fencing. A rubber-lined, 16 m post and rail round yard sits to one side of the arena complex.

There is a 25,000L rainwater tank to the rear of the indoor arena with overflow into a large dam. A tributary of Susannah Brook traversing the north-east corner of the property flows into the dam.

The opportunities inherent in a lifestyle property of this calibre are rarely seen or equalled.
