Resonating with all the romance of a bygone era transported beautifully into the modern age,Dalkeith Houseis a Tudor-style mansion on 10 acres of park-like gardens with swimming pool, fruit orchard and tennis court offering luxury accommodation for groups of up to 8 people.
Long cherished as an exclusive holiday home constructed in the early 1900s, the grand property has witnessed a number of incarnations over the past century, including as a thoroughbred horse farm, wedding reception venue, restaurant, upmarket B&B and even the site of Agatha Christie-type murder-mystery parties.
Exquisitely refurbished in sympathetic accord with the timeless grandeur of the original residence, this spectacular home has once again opened its door to the public to accommodate large or dual families escapes.
Gazing out across the picturesque rural landscape, rose gardens and stone-column pergola crafted by the late acclaimed garden designer Edna Walling where you can sit and take in views of Port Phillip Bay the home is spread over two opulent levels including 3 large living areas with open fireplaces, a contemporary gourmets kitchen with stone countertops and Ilve dual oven and both formal and informal dining zones.
Said to have once slept The Queen Mother, as well as Paul and Linda McCartney, the regal suite on the lower level provides a queen-sized bed and Art - Deco style full bathroom, while up the sweeping staircase are two additional queen-sized bedroom serviced by another full Art - Deco style bathroom, plus a lavish master with king-size bed and glamorous modern ensuite.
A well-equipped games room, cubby house, built-in playground and new mod-grass tennis court will keep the kids entertained as you relax in the swimming pool set at an always-balmy 25 degrees or beneath the pergola with a cocktail. A glorious selection of alfresco areas provide a quiet space for every member of the clan to unwind before firing up the barbecue to grill some fresh local seafood to dine alfresco style.
Surrounded by beaches, wineries, day spas and golfing greens and just 2 minutes drive to Martha Cove marina, a self-contained 1-bedroom apartment on the grounds with bathroom and kitchenette is also available by special request.
