11, School Road, MUSK, VIC 3461
Musk Farm is a destination property located in one of Australia’s prestigious regions, Daylesford and the Macedon Ranges, home to the largest concentration of mineral springs in the Country and only 90 minutes from Melbourne and 60 minutes from Tullamarine, Melbourne’s main International and Domestic Airport. Steeped in history, circa 1870s, the legacy of Stuart Rattle lives on in this beautifully restored and exquisitely crafted property with 15 garden rooms based on a cross axis organization of great French and English gardens. The house and gardens were designed around the architectural design of enfilade, a procession of rooms. The main residence stunning in its detail is elaborate and grand yet warm and inviting for family and guests to relax and enjoy. The fabulous kitchen with AGA, open fire and huge Calcutta marble English oak island bench combines with casual dining and living. The procession of rooms takes you through stunning designs of classic and traditional interiors to the more casual long room with soft drapes and a garden vista to enormous fruit and vegetable cages. The downstairs bedroom reflects the essence of the long room with garden views from every window. The upstairs bedrooms are detailed with precision, and the dormer windows framed with drapes are central to the house design. Marble ensuites for each bedroom complete. The summer house studio is private and includes a sitting room of oak lined paneling with fabrics and drapes of William Morris design and a Coalbrookdale cast iron slow combustion fireplace, a dining space, kitchenette, bedroom and marble en-suite. French doors from the sitting room, bedroom and entrance hall all open to a private courtyard and terrace garden. Expansive workshops and garages sit aside the clocktower. The 15 garden rooms showcase a history of landscape design and transformation, and take you on a seasonal journey of flowerings, colour transitions and simply a journey of beauty and inspiration. Musk Farm is prestigious on every level but is a beautiful home to be loved and enjoyed.
