A beautiful example of New England-style elegance nestled among extraordinary gardens in the heart of charming Exeter village, 'Columbia' is a 3.5-acre estate of distinction. Providing utter privacy and a sumptuous blend of comfort and style, both the home and the grounds will take your breath away. Be transported to an English country estate in the Highlands: impressive camelia hedges, formal parterre gardens and magical secret garden rooms, a tennis court, new heated swimming pool, elevated firepit area, children's playground and tree-lined driveways.

Four very large bedrooms (including a spacious parents' retreat of great luxury), an exquisite, light-filled library, media room, country kitchen with living and dining room combined, a large butler's pantry and a spectacular double-height entry foyer have all been skilfully renovated and decorated to create a warm, welcoming family home. Adjoined, but set away from the main home is a spacious studio apartment/home office - open-plan, strikingly stylish and beautifully finished, it boasts exposed beams, a pitched ceiling, a semi-circular picture window, combustion fireplace, timber floorboards and its own bathroom.

Once the home of the Yates family - one of the most recognised names in Australian garden history - the garden is one of immense tranquillity and beauty. Artfully structured with colour, height and variety, perennials and annuals, established deciduous trees and exquisite flowering hedges, it is a jewel amongst Highland gardens.
