Property Description

Bininna Hills. A Splendid Country House On 5.5 Acres

Once in a while, a house so spectacular comes to the market that sends you searching in your bag of superlatives to describe it, only to find alas none could do it justice.
Bininna Hills is just such a house.

"Bininna Hills " is approached from a quiet country lane via attractive stone pillars and handmade wrought iron entrance gates. A sweeping tree lined avenue, illuminated by antique street lights, leads to this very imposing detached cut stone former farmhouse residence , believed to date back to the eighteenth century, which is set in off the road and surrounded on all sides by mature gardens and railed paddocks.

The original property was acquired in 1997 and completely gutted and extended to the most exemplary of modern day standards, whilst retaining all the features of a period house of its time, including the original stone cut ranges and inglenook fireplaces.

This home is a unique stylish blend of modern and traditional, such as sash windows, exposed stone walls and fireplaces and period features one would expect in a home of this nature. Picture perfectly set amongst wonderfully mature grounds with sycamore, copper beech and ash trees in abundance, the one acre gardens feature a large stone edged pond and waterfall, a second relaxation pond and a multitude of standard and raised flower beds containing colourful and exotic shrubs and water features, in all making Bininna Hills a garden lover's dream.
