Sotheby's International Realty is delighted to offer to the discerning buyer an important historic mansion ideally situated on approximately 8.85 acres of vineyards only hundreds of metres from the picturesque coast. Heathfield House presents purchasers the opportunity to restore as a luxury residence or operate as a hotel, restaurant, cellar door, health retreat or numerous other uses (STCC).
Privately nestled at the end of a long driveway and surrounded entirely by mature plantings and a fruit-bearing vineyard is the historic Heathfield House, built in 1864 and formerly used as a Governor's summer residence by Sir William Jervois. The house retains many period features yet has been ushered into the 21st century via recent renovations.
The nearly 780 sqm two-storey main residence is entered via a grand neo-classical hallway, and features a large ballroom with open marble fireplace, 7 bedrooms with 7 ensuite bathrooms, a spectacular vine-covered courtyard, a commercial grade kitchen complete with scullery, an exceedingly spacious dining room, a resort style pool, a separate pool house and separate garage/studio.
Further features to the estate include varied and lush gardens and courtyards surrounding the property, substantial outbuildings, offices and garaging equipped with modern wiring and network cabling, plantings to the varietals of Shiraz and Chardonnay, a capacious car-parking area and wonderful street appeal.
We invite you to inspect this remarkable opportunity.
