Sandstone Estate is nestled within the hinterland of Mornington Peninsula among the rolling hills of Red Hill with its name adopted from the beautiful homestead built from Tasmanian sandstone. This stunning house extends across a single level of open plan design split into two wings with views of the vineyard. At the entrance is the North Wing with a queen bedroom, separate bathroom and a well equipped laundry room. The entrance opens into the open plan living zone and spacious country kitchen ideal for entertaining overlooking the spectacular vineyard hills. Opposite the kitchen is a fully glassed bay window breakfast nook, perfect for catching the morning sun. Continuing along the long corridor to the south wing, you are greeted with an open fireplace adjoining a formal lounge and dining setting. The end of the corridor connects to the master bedroom with walk in robe, ensuite including a spa bath. Two more bedrooms and a separate bathroom, each with its unique garden outlook are adjacent. In total Sandstone Estate accommodated up to 10 adults and 3 children across 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.

Surrounded by fabulous entertaining areas, well maintained, established gardens and a shaded alfresco area, Sandstone Estate creates the ideal retreat to spend time with your nearest and dearest family members and provides the perfect setting for a ladies retreat. corporate or wedding accommodation.

The Estate itself is 20 acres, located in a valley. The house is perched at the top edge of the valley giving the best views across the entire area and to the other side where the forest reserve lies. Kangaroos are often spotted bounding across the land to the safety of the trees and if you are lucky you might spot the pair of eagles circling a top the Estate. At the bottom of the valley lies the ever-flowing Dunns Creek giving out a soothing water melody. It is lined with mature native trees giving plenty of shade. Just beyond the front garden of the house lies the orchard containing a variety of stone fruit and apple trees, carefully planted to create a walking vista towards the pond filled with water lilies. The long driveway from the property entrance is lined with gum trees and draws your attention towards the house as you pass the cellar door that overlooks the irrigation dam.

The working vineyard has vines covering 7.5 acres of land with varieties of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. Sandstone Estate’s gardens and lawn areas are fully accessible by guests. Due to cross infection from other parts of the state, the vineyard is off limits. On occasion harvesting and vineyard management will occur during your stay.
