‘Benwerrin’ is spectacular.

Its landscape, its architecture, its gardens, its livestock, and the views – they are all beautiful. And to be honest, just a bit unexpected too. Pakenham Upper, with its small pretty farms, nature reserves and walking trails, is a place that sits nicely under the radar and doesn’t always spring to mind as a leading lifestyle destination.

But to pull into the driveway at ‘Benwerrin’ is to know why the current owners fell hard for this picturesque little valley 40 years ago and have spent the time since creating and enjoying a quite remarkable country escape.

It’s a superbly improved property spanning over 290 acres, with verdant pastures, excellent water supply, and currently running just over 100 head of cattle – with a farm manager living onsite in a secondary well-equipped five-bedroom freestanding residence.

Overlooking it all at the very top of the property is the main house of ‘Benwerrin’, which is a copybook example of timeless design. It was completed in 2008 under the direction of the renowned Guilford Bell and Graham Fisher Architects whose signature strong clean elegant lines, magnificent proportions and quality of finish have allowed it to remain completely fresh and contemporary. The floorplan is excellent with a selection of relaxed and inviting spaces where occupants can either seek privacy or company. There are five spacious bedrooms and five bathrooms – with the stunning principal suite featuring dual ensuites. And, like most of the rooms here, picture-perfect views across the picture-perfect gardens – which are a stunning assemblage of towering trees, rolling lawns, rose garden and tennis court.

‘Benwerrin’ really is a most extraordinary property, in a most unexpected corner of the world. And, as it has for the current family for the past four decades, it offers the most wonderful opportunity to find a place to pursue the country dream without straying too far from the city at all.
