February 9, 2024 BY

Comprising two lots offering just over 100 acres of land, Suma Park Estate at 2135 Bellarine Highway is a grand property that is a jewel in the Bellarine Peninsula's crown.

Elders Real Estate in conjunction with RT Edgar have listed an amazing rural property packed with infrastructure that can host an endless option of agriculture and tourism related enterprises.

Comprising two lots offering just over 100 acres of land, Suma Park Estate is an amazing property that is a jewel in the Bellarine Peninsula’s crown and is looking to achieve a grand price of above $14 million for both parcels.

The property seamlessly blends rich history with enduring grandeur with modern facilities that make this such an extraordinary property.

Established in 1888 by the renowned racehorse breeder James Wilson, Suma Park represents more than just a piece of land – it’s a legacy, a testament to time-honoured grandeur and visionary entrepreneurship.

Conjunctional agent Peter Lindeman of Elders Geelong said that this is a rare chance to acquire a property with iconic status on the Bellarine, boasting a rich history dating back to 1888.

“Properties of this exceptional quality seldom enter the market, and by investing in Suma Park Estate, you’re investing in a historical treasure with endless possibilities, a prospect for buyers who can envision potential beyond the tangible aspects,” Mr Lindeman said.

“We will be quoting above $11,500,000.00 for Lot 2 including the homestead, vineyards and infrastructure and we will be quoting above $2,500,000.00 for Lot 1 which is bare land.”

Spanning 100 acres over two titles which are to be sold as a whole or in contingent parcels.

Lot 1, which comprises approximately 42.25 acres bare land with breathtaking views over Point Lonsdale and Port Phillip Heads with two road frontages provides an excellent land bank opportunity or a blank canvas for a multitude of uses subject to council approval.

Lot 2, which comprises approximately 58.10 acres with panoramic views over Swan Bay, Point Lonsdale, Queenscliff, and Port Phillip Heads.

Designed by the esteemed J.T. Conlon, this late Victorian villa exudes a timeless elegance, its spacious rooms adorned with ornate fireplaces and soaring ceilings with stunning ceiling roses.

Presently serving as a refined function space, the homestead offers those with a vision the potential to restore the original stately residence and make it a permanent home.

The charming Mistress’s Cottage, a two-bedroom Victorian treasure set within the estate’s cottage gardens, was originally built to house Wilson’s young mistress.

Further accommodation at Suma Park includes 10 two-bed, two-bath cottages and a one bedroom studio cottage with serene views down to Swan Bay.

A central picnic and barbecue area creates a communal hub for guests.

For the equine enthusiast, the lofty heritage-listed stables blend rustic charm with practicality.

Presently a picturesque wedding venue, this space caters to a myriad of possibilities including the potential to reinstate its original purpose for stabling up to 12 horses.

The property also boasts a comprehensive Conference and Corporate Centre, capable of hosting diverse events from intimate workshops to larger conferences.

The 11-acre vineyard of primarily Chardonnay and Pinot Noir offers a tantalising venture for wine enthusiasts and entrepreneurs alike.
