Woodend country house

St Ambrose Farm, designed and formerly owned by the renown garden designer Paul Bangay, is currently on the market. It's situated at Woodend, about an hour's drive outside Melbourne.  If I won the lottery and had a few million in the kitty and a full-time gardener to look after the grounds I'd definitely think about snapping it up just so I could wander around the gardens each and every day...
And here's a glimpse of what the interior of the home looks like...

I with you if I had the money I would purchase this place in a flash. I particularly love the recessed BBQ entertainment pit.

This is one of my absolute all-time favourite houses Lee. Paul & his partner have done an amazing job here, any idea why they are selling? If it was me I could never say goodbye to this treasure.

Hey Lee
What a fabulous place. The bathroom and windows seat are certain winners before even getting to the grounds! I guess I have to add myself to the list of Lotto wannabe winners! x Julie
