HISTORIC Trenavin Park, a 33.76 hectare property and mansion in Ventnor was sold on Friday as a private holiday home to one lucky buyer.

Although the sale price is unknown, the property had a $7-$7.7 million price guide.

Sean Cussell of Christie’s International Real Estate in South Yarra said the property generated a lot of interest from a “very diverse” pool of buyers across the whole of Victoria.

The property was on the market just three weeks.

Sean said the buyer was Victorian and will continue to use the property as a holiday home and retreat.

CoreLogic records show the secluded property was last sold for $4.25m in September 2008, which was the highest residential sale price achieved in the town of Ventnor.

It is presumed that record has now been beat.

Trenavin Park includes a secluded beachfront, tennis court, a machinery shed, two storage shed and fully restored 1906 chapel, once the original San Remo Church that was transported to the estate 30 years ago.

The main home is a Welsh slate-roofed double storey mansion, built in 1923, in the Arts and Crafts style and is reached by a private Cypress lined driveway.

The home has five-bedrooms and features period details including a craftsman-built timber staircase, coffered ceilings and timber wall panels.

The kitchen and adjoining open-plan living and dining space has been contemporarily renovated, with French doors opening to a wide veranda.

Surrounded by beautiful gardens, the main house boasts hydronic heating, three large open fireplaces, wood burning heater, contemporary kitchen with original AGA and Italian Bertazzoni oven.

A second home, known as The Cottage, is a three-bedroom property and ideally suited as a guest house or potential Airbnb.
