"Lower Steading" A compelling country estate in Stephen Akehurst's signature style

Astounding with its sense of stately splendour, this exceptional country estate exhibits the signature style of former owner Stephen Akehurst, one of the Peninsula's most revered designers.

A place of profound beauty on 4 acres (approx.) of park-like gardens with a pool and tennis court, the gracious home is superbly detailed with an unprecedented level of quality and craftsmanship.

Introduced by a gated entry and circular, stone walled drive, the home pays tribute to classic Hamptons style with a slate gabled roof and external shutters creating an indelible first impression.

Both opulent and warmly welcoming, the interior is defined by French doors in every space, encouraging a superb connection to the verdant vistas, inviting Al fresco areas, and alluring outdoor 'rooms'. With formal lounge and dining areas enhanced by intimate library and sitting rooms, the hero of the home is the spectacular farmhouse kitchen and Butlers pantry, delineated by an open fire and imbued with the glamour of polished brass door furniture, marble finishes and a Paul Bocuse designed Rosieres 1500mm cooker.

Two bedrooms share a family bathroom on the ground floor, while upstairs a stunning master bedroom includes an ensuite and walk in robe, a fourth bedroom accesses an additional bathroom and a multi purpose living room or fifth bedroom, enjoys the ambience of a gas log fire.

On a quiet, no through road assuring absolute peace and privacy, the property features magnificent gardens with vast lawns and long established trees, stone walls swathed in stunning white hydrangeas and vine draped arbours interspersed with classical paved terraces. Ideally remote yet moments from coveted wineries, this spectacular property offers a place of sanctuary and sets a new benchmark in classic, country living.


Only 90 minutes drive from Melbourne but a totally different world. The gentle hamlet of Flinders, on the southwestern tip of the Mornington Peninsula is the end of the road where your life starts again.
