Botanically, architecturally and historically Benue Lodge is sheer perfection.

One of Mt Macedons most significant hill station properties dating back to 1885, Benue Lodge has been meticulously restored and is being gifted to the next custodian who yearns for a lifestyle like no other.

Set on approximately three acres of botanic beauty, the harmonious relationship between rich ornamental gardens and a grand Victorian era home is evident. As you would expect of a home of this nature, the interior and overall design are exceptional. In the main homestead, there are five bedrooms all dressed with ensuites and personalities of their own. Cleverly designed to allow people to draw together as easily as they may slip away, the floorplan centres around the Grand Drawing Room towering in height and splendour with French doors spilling out to the verandah and gardens. Around an open fireplace, the atmospheric library/study connects to an open plan Kitchen, Meals and Breakfast Room brightened by northern light and enlivened by chequered tiles underfoot. An original (and working) Aga oven pays homage to the history of the home, whilst new appliances contemporise the space. Completing the generous living area is a tranquil, sun filled Conservatory an ideal space to relax and enjoy expansive views of the garden.

Adding a touch of glamour is a sumptuous Formal Dining room (framed by delicate garden views). The interior is something to behold - embroidered silk window furnishings, peacock teal wainscoting, texturally rich wallpaper and an antique chandelier completes the room.

A fully self-contained two bedroom cottage (with two lounges, kitchen, laundry, and private garden) will serve many a purpose, as will the studio/office with Jarrah floors adjoining the double lock-up garage.

Characterised by meandering stone paths, sunken gardens and botanical style layout, the grounds are as elegant as they are commanding. There are over a hundred mature trees, including towering Douglas Firs, Oaks (English, Red, Shumard, Portuguese), and Elms (Weeping, Dutch, Scottish, Chinese Ghost). Elsewhere, Rhododendrons, Hellebores and manicured hedges are displayed. Further destinations within the grounds include the walled rose garden (embraced by century old bricks), picturesque pond, paved alfresco terrace, pristine pool and orchard. With ducted natural gas heating, the property is also well hydrated featuring town/bore water, grey water system and dual water tanks.

A moment from the Mt Macedon and Macedon townships, and under an hour from Melbourne.

Perfection is a rarity. See for yourself.
