LANDMARK Phillip Island property ‘Banksia Park Estate’ has been sold.
Every visitor to Phillip Island has a snapshot of this unique property as they drive past, with its distinct chicory kiln located near the gateway entrance.
It draws admiring comments on a regular basis, as to where the long driveway leads.
Norma Stack-Robinson and John Robinson, long standing locals, have happily resided on the 32 acre farm at Newhaven for the past 21 years.
They have enjoyed their stay and successfully developed the property over the years with display gardens and nursery, which attracted locals and tourists alike.
The labour intensive work to propagate and pot up all the cuttings to established plants delighted the locals in knowing the plants were grown for Island conditions.
Many will remember the Christmas tree farm where locals would choose their own fresh tree, cut down and ready to take home; as well, the wonderful Alpacas roaming on the acreage.
Their expertise turned to upgrading from a B&B accommodation provider to developing and operating a successful niche market of providing select accommodation studios.
The local area will always be their significant home and they look forward to their next chapter in their lives.
Sharon Wintle of 1st Choice Estate Agency was successful in marketing and negotiating the sale on their behalf.
