Glenworth' is possibly the most prestigious, stately residence in the district, breathtakingly placed in a unique location on Berry Mountain, its grounds set upon a broad raised flat above the escarpment overlooking Berry and beyond to the sea, with a rising wooded hill behind providing calm and seclusion.
Glenworth' is a magnificent Victorian two storey home steeped in history, built in 1880 by James Wilson, the esteemed first mayor of Berry.
With extensive outbuildings and sufficient shedding to store all forms of farm machinery, this 98.8 acre property has plenty to offer both as a grand residence and a rural holding. Divided into 7 grazing paddocks extending over undulating flats and hills, well established improved pastures thrive in the deep rich red basaltic soils.
Two small creeks emerge from sources on the property to eventually cascade down the escarpment below. A line of large gum, fig and pine trees running across the western end of the property provide privacy and protection against westerly winds.
A gravel driveway leading to the main residence winds over two bridges, offering spectacular views over the coast and an intimate vista of convict tiered rock walls in the wooded valley below the house.
Also included is a 2nd dwelling, previously a Caretakers Cottage, set well apart in a tranquil creek-side location, providing the opportunity to create a private enclave for visitors or holiday letting.
Properties such as Glenworth' are a very rare offering, with this land being held in the present family for 67 years.
