Besotted buyers splash millions on Romsey dream home
It was love at first sight for a Macedon Ranges family who splashed $2 million on their dream home in Romsey.
The buyers were instantly attracted to the five-bedroom house on a 16ha block at 47 Crooked Rd that drew interest from as far as Melbourne and interstate.

Jellis Craig’s Dominic Romeo said it was a beautiful lifestyle property with an amazing outlook.
“It’s in a lovely garden with magnificent views towards Melbourne,” Mr Romeo said.
“It also has a great set-up for horses, which suited the family’s needs.”
The buyers were one of three who competed for the home that sold within the owners’ expectations.
Mr Romeo said the property was established in the 1990s and had changed hands twice.
The owners had lived there for about eight years and were moving to another property in the area.
Named Ochiltree Hill, the lifestyle property sprawls in a tightly held golden circle locale on the outskirts of Romsey.
A long tree-lined driveway leads to the substantial 394sq m homestead overlooking sweeping lawns and established gardens.
The rendered brick house has multiple living and dining areas with picture windows that capture the views.
The kitchen is a gourmet chef’s dream with its abundant storage and bench space, fully serviced butler’s pantry and quality appliances.
Other features include a wine room, zoned underfloor heating and a large brick fireplace.
The property is impressive with imposing stone steps leading to a rose garden, a solar-heated pool and spa, a tennis court with an enclosed pavilion, and an outdoor entertainment area with a pizza oven.
The buyers, who were horse enthusiasts, appreciated the property’s infrastructure that included stables and shelters, tack room and yards, five paddocks, two large sheds, laneways and electric fences.
The enclosed fruit orchard, poultry run, solar panels, garage with workshop, and solar-powered entry gates added to the home’s appeal.
The property is near the town centre, schools, galleries, cafes, restaurants, historic towns and wineries.
