Melba Valley Estate
Melba Valley Estate sits amid 85 acres of gently rolling Yarra Valley land. This immaculately presented property incorporates a 35-acre vineyard with top-quality equestrian facilities, offering an exceptional country lifestyle just one hour’s drive from Melbourne.
The attractive four-bedroom home is nestled within mature gardens that offer picturesque privacy. Beginning with a generous formal lounge and dining area that is warmed by the glow of an ambient open fireplace, step through to the marble-topped kitchen which features a 900mm gas cooktop, Miele dishwasher and picture window that captures serene Valley views.
Designed for relaxed entertaining, the living and meals zone leads out to the paved patio and stepped decking that provides a wonderful space for outdoor dining. The well-conceived floorplan also incorporates a home office, 4 robed bedrooms including the master with a walk-in robe and ensuite, main bathroom, two storerooms and a laundry.
Substantial equestrian improvements include a stable block with four boxes, tack room, feed room, tie-ups and hot wash. There is an excellent round yard as well as post and rail day yards and large post and rail paddocks. Water is plentiful with three catchment dams, one of which is over 35 mega litres and used to irrigate the vineyard.
Further structures include a cottage and staff accommodation, storage and machinery sheds. A building of interest is the old Dixons Creek Hall that was rescued and relocated to the property. Offering additional opportunity for commercial income, astute buyers will recognise its potential to be converted into a successful café, cellar door or wedding reception venue.
Set in a tightly held area with notable neighbouring properties including De Bortoli Wines, Mandala Wines and Dixons Creek Estate; Melba Valley Estate represents a significant land and vineyard holding in a highly favoured area of the Yarra Valley.
