This magnificent Victorian era mansion is set on just under 10 acres with uninterrupted views to Mt Buller, and is offered for sale with the neighbouring property 'The Stables' on another acre and a half.
'Highton Manor' has been operating as a boutique hotel, licensed restaurant, bar and function centre for over 20 years and hosted numerous dignitaries in that time. With regional tourism booming it's future is looking very bright, particularly with the huge demand for regional wedding venues.
The building has been lovingly maintained and upgraded over those years and boasts some amazing marble fireplaces, soaring ceilings and stunning wallpaper. Huge double hung windows frame the beautiful views to Mt Buller and the surrounding ranges, with the snow capped peaks in winter beckoning guests to enjoy a day on the slopes. When it's a little warmer, the gardens with rolling lawns, magnificent trees and roses are the perfect setting for guests to enjoy a high tea and perhaps imagine they are starring in an episode of Bridgerton.
Back inside, make your way up to 'The Tower Suite' to enjoy the best views, and maybe the attention of a friendly ghost. There are a total of up to 9 bedrooms serviced by 7 bathrooms plus magnificent reception rooms, a well fitted commercial kitchen and rustic bar with a wine cellar and guest toilets. There's also a huge garage and workshop and lots of other little surprises that you will need to see in person.
More photos and details of the history of the property are available upon request.
'The Stables' is on its own title but offered for purchase in conjunction with the magnificent 'Highton Manor'. This versatile property includes a modern designer home with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and light filled open plan living where you can admire your own private vineyard through the huge double glazed windows.
The original stables building houses 5 guest suites, each with their own bathroom, plus a huge somewhat derelict attic space with exciting potential for renovation. There's also a magnificent fully tiled pool and some lovely established trees.
Further subdivision is also a possibility with an approved development plan and 173 agreement in place. Please request copies of these documents.
