It looks more like a scene from the rolling hills of Tuscany, but this stunning Italian-style villa can be found right here in Australia’s own backyard.
Dubbed the Tour Rouge – which is French for Red Tower – this stunning 1.2-hectare estate is the handiwork of Rob and Danice Duffield, who embarked on the home project 20 years ago.
Sitting behind wrought-iron gates and at the end of a winding driveway, the stunning four-bedroom home is like a scene from a fairytale.
The Carwoola property, which has a solar-heated pool and three acres of gardens, is fitted out with every piece of luxury imaginable.
In the kitchen, sleek granite benchtops are accompanied by premium Miele appliances, fridges and freezers and there are even two ovens so you can host the ultimate dinner party at home.
The home is built around a stunning red-brick fireplace, with floor-to-ceiling windows in the master bedroom to allow for the perfect view to the surrounding gardens.
But it’s the outdoor area that’s the real standout of the property, and will have you feeling like you’re in Europe in no time.
With the property sitting just 30 minutes from Canberra, the built-in barbecue, wood-fired pizza oven and open fireplace alongside the crystal-clear pool will have you feeling like you’re on the Italian coastline.
While the estate has often been used for weddings and photo shoots, the lavish property is now up for sale next month – and given any travel to Europe is a good while away, we can imagine a lot of buyers will be considering placing a bid.
