Bullengarook Park, an outstanding property of about 91.46 hectares, offers a dream lifestyle with direct access to Pyrete Range, along with infrastructure suitable for critters.

The gorgeous stone house, replete with history, is reached via a long tree-lined driveway, with dry stone pillars at the gate announcing the property’s cachet. At driveway’s end, the house precinct is defined by formal hedging and circular rose garden – the gardens are a standout, with lovely exotic trees, shady nooks and dry stone-edged beds with cottage plantings. Not to mention the panoramic rural vistas.

High ceilings, deep skirts and sash windows put on a fine display in the graceful lounge room with subtle wallpaper and a fireplace with marble mantelpiece and brick surround.

The dining room is similarly charming, with a fireplace and antique surround. Light fittings are a feature in both rooms.

Another large room is set up as a library, with shelves lining one wall and exposed beams on a white plaster ceiling. It also has a bar, making it great for casual entertainment times.

The mood becomes more contemporary in the kitchen and meals areas, the latter with clever floating drawers on one wall. Floors are laid with unpatterned vinyl, ideal for rural life, and downlights stud the ceiling. Views from the meals zone are special.

The sleek kitchen, with a stack of white cabinetry with lots of drawers, has a waterfall stone bench, glass splashback and wall oven, gas cooktop and dishwasher.

The four bedrooms include the large elegant main with a cast-iron fireplace and marble surround. Wall paint is a lovely blue/green, tall sash windows are beautifully dressed and there’s a walk-in robe and en suite.

There’s also a study.

A spacious pergola with downlights provides the box seat for views and plenty of room for entertaining.

Outbuildings include atmospheric old stables, milking and machinery sheds, cattle yards and crush and shearing shed and yards. The six main paddocks are watered by troughs, creek or dams.

The large-acre property is equidistant from Gisborne and Bacchus Marsh (about 16 kilometres) and 70 kilometres from Melbourne CBD.
