British vodka baron Julian Moss to sell his spectacular £15.8 million riverfront country estate just an hour from Sydney in Australia
This morning charismatic vodka tycoon and well known business “disruptor” Julian Moss took to social media to announce that he is selling his riverfront ‘Lambourne Estate’ an hour from Sydney.
In a post on Facebook, this son of a diplomat and a renowned war journalist announced: “Good morning friends, the Moss family are on the move” and added: “Lambourne has been a very magical home that many have enjoyed including the Dalai Lama. After 25 wonderful years it’s time to move on.”
The British businessman and international jetsetter linked his update to a dedicated website created by Ken Jacobs of Christie’s International Real Estate where 1324 River Road, Lower Portland – as the property is also known – is described in detail.
Aside from a spacious 6-bedroom main residence, the just under 35-acre estate also featutes a 4-bedroom guest house, garaging for four cars, stabling and a large machinery shed. Set above the Hawkesbury River and accessed via a long driveway through woodland, this is a place that is all about outdoor entertaining and enjoyment. There are six paddocks with white post and rail fencing and other amenities number a full-sized tennis court, an outdoor swimming pool, an Olympic sized dressage arena and a pontoon with private boat ramp.
In an email to The Steeple Times, Moss later remarked: “Lambourne was originally the country retreat of the first governor of New South Wales. It was named after one of the team who discovered the Blue Mountains and living here has just been bliss. Sitting on the verandah here with my family at the end of a day enthusing the great drinking public about VDKA 6100 is something that we will all very much miss.”
