Renowned landscape designer Paul Bangay is selling his home outside Melbourne, an estate set in stunning gardens he describes as his “life’s greatest work”.

Stonefields is set on about 16 hectares in Denver, between Kyneton and Daylesford, and has been listed with price hopes of $8 million to $8.8 million.

It last traded in 2004 for $320,000, records show, and the designer has transformed the site from a bare paddock into grand gardens inspired by his world travels, with stately oak trees, a hilltop pool, a Tuscan-inspired main house with dramatic interiors plus guest house and private office.

Now the gardens are mature, Bangay now hopes to find another opportunity nearby to create a new dream home.

“It’s a very traumatic day for us. It has been a very long process of making this decision,” Bangay told The Age.

“Me and my partner think it is time to create another one.”

He said it was frustrating to not be able to do anything more to the gardens now they are established, but plans a new project that will become their forever home.
