Morning Star Estate - A grand Gothic Revival chateau was built in 1867 by Francis Gillett on 156 acres with beach frontage, on to Port Phillip Bay.
In addition to the great house, a 32 acre vineyard and spectacular classical gardens, the property has a 20 bedroom motel, separate managers residence and plans drawn for a high-end residence overlooking the beach.
Morning Star is home to one of the very first vineyard plantations on the Mornington Peninsula. The 'Franciscan Block' was established by Franciscan friars who it is said, returned from Burgundy with vines to recreate the spectacular vintages they were used to. This block produces wonderfully complex wine to this day.This property is an utterly unique proposition and one which once sold will more than likely never be seen again. Morning Star is the last of the great summer residences of the wealthiest families of Melbourne. Its contemporary properties having been subdivided many years ago. Simply as a land bank Morning Star is irreplaceable.
This is a licensed property with a recent history of being the peninsulas premier wedding and event venue. With some care and attention it would be so again. Add to this the altogether breathtaking location and whether your desire is to own one of the all time spectacular agricultural properties less than an hour from Melbourne, or you wish to develop this 156 acres to its fullest potential, Morning Star is a once in a lifetime golden opportunity.
