Our Country home is an easy 40 kilometre drive from Melbourne. A 1870s traditional homestead that captures the essence of a traditional farming lifestyle. A fire place in the living room, split system heating/cooling, separate dining room, large modern kitchen and indoor/outdoor verandah to enjoy a drink or dinner gazing at the sweeping views. A full-sized billiards table, for relaxation and leisurely pastimes. A large pool gives a perfect outdoor experience. All on a remaining 22 acres.

There are 5 bedrooms, 2 living rooms, an office/den, and an enclosed veranda that overlooks the rolling valley and mountains in the distance.

Please bring your own Sheets and pillow slips for stays less than 7 days. We will provide towels for the number of people staying regardless of short or long your stay may be.

The fireplace by the television in the living room has a stone chimney and is warm, cosy and welcoming. Extra wood is outside by the side door right near by.

I have just purchased the most comfortable couches to add to the two living rooms. The other couches were quite dated and this has reflected in some of the reviews. The new look and update of the living rooms lifts the feel of the house, and comfort has been maximised! It has really made both spaces very cosy. Please be extra careful with the new couches and please keep the covers on them.

The second living room now has a television and is a very cosy a light room that overlooks the pool and the valley whilst backing onto the enclosed verandah. The verandah has a table that seats 8 people, a relaxing lay back lounge chair, and a small seperate table with surrounding chairs for coffee with a view.

There is a dining room that can seat 8 people with a great outlook across the mountains. Also, a fold out table if you would like to have dinner by the fire and television.

The large pool is available and there are lounges at the end of the pool to enjoy the sunshine. Also, pool toys and blow up lounge if you feel like a mid pool lie down and relax. The enclosed verandah is situated next to the pool, so it is perfect for lunch looking over the hills after a dip in the pool.

The tennis court is there to use, however right at this moment, some work needs to be done to bring to perfect condition but is more than playable. If you would like to use it you may, but do not expect a perfect court. There are rackets provided. Feel free to bring your own if you like.

A full sized billiards table is situated in the living room to use. Always chalk your cues before each shot and no drinks resting on the table please.

For those that like a large bath (spa type) there is one in the outhouse that overlooks the hills as well. In order to use this, ensure the water level is above the blowers, and underneath the spa (under the sink) is a power point that needs to be turned on manually.

There is a fully equipped kitchen offering necessities such as milk, tea, coffee, muesli, bread and a treat or two. There is also a range of herbs and spices.

One of the very unique aspects of the homestead is the underground bar. It seats 5 people around a semi-circular bar, and one behind for the person that can poor the best drinks. There is a dart board and brand new darts, it’s great to have a game whilst having some drinks around the bar or popping up for a game of billiards. Unfortunately this is out of order at the moment.

There are plenty of board games to play around the fire and childrens books and teddies for the little ones.

Furthermore, there are paddocks available to wander through and some of them have horses, which are friendly, adding to the farming feel. Please never stand behind a horses back legs. If you are unfamiliar with horses then it is safest to pat the horses over the fence without going into the paddock. During Summer months be very mindful of snakes. It is safer not to wander in overgrown paddocks. Please always remember to shut the gates.

There is enough space to park 6 cars comfortably.

This home was built by the Clarke family in 1870 as their holiday home, getting there by horse and cart from Melbourne! Our family bought the farm in 1958 as a permanent home and further extended it. We have been here ever since with all family members growing up here. There is a rich history to this home which adds to its character.

It is a traditional Victorian style home with mostly original furniture, some of it well loved but adds to the character. As it is a traditional farm house, there are some older/used features that are more than comfortable and expected in an older house but this must be known.

There is a new kitchen to the one pictured, it is much more modern easy to cook in and have a drink at the kitchen table . Photos following.

We have installed a split system, air conditioning and heater in the large living room area. This will service the kitchen, dining and living area if the doors to the hallway are kept closed. There is an open fireplace in the living room also. There are in built bar heaters in two of the rooms that are very effective and plug in heaters for the remaining two which work perfectly.

A little bit about myself, I work in hospitality and have a sound understanding of making people comfortable in their environment. This is demonstrated well at the beautiful property " Linton Grange". I have always had a passion for this property and running the smooth operation of the farm.
