Timeless classic pool and landscape for one of the Macedon Ranges finest estates

‘Macedon Grange’ is undeniably one of the best properties in the Macedon Ranges with the most spectacular views to Mount Macedon in Victoria, Australia. This luxurious solid bluestone two-storey residence sits on 118 acres, has its own lake and of course, a magnificent pool and garden that looks straight out of a magazine.

MINT Design were engaged to design the centrepiece of the garden with a brief for a pool, spa and surrounding landscape.

Whilst the traditionally-styled house and garden drove the design aesthetic around the pool, the client was after a contemporary spin on the pool area.

The 15 x 5m pool and spa was naturally designed to maximise the stunning view to Mt. Macedon. The pool build was by TLC Pools, who have an enviably reputation for their work on luxury projects.

Darin Bradbury, Mint’s Senior Designer said,

”The brief was simple here. Design a pool that would be the centrepiece of the property and give the client clear views over the water to Mt Macedon. What really pulls this project together though is the plants. We had the freedom to design with perennials and grasses which gave us the opportunity to use softer foliage textures against bold flower colours. ”

Recently sold, the new owner commented that he and his wife fell in love “superb landscaping”. We know they, their children and grandchildren will be creating many happy memories there for years to come.
