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.”

As he faces a £400 million fraud trial, coffin dodging skinflint Bernie Ecclestone has slashed the price of one his gin palaces, Petara; the 190-foot yacht is now on sale for the bargain basement price of ‘just’ £16 million.
As £668,000 is sliced off the price of Ghislaine Maxwell and Scott Borgerson’s former home (and an ‘open house’ is arranged at ‘Maxwell House’), here is a perfect outing for those that want to take a gander at such features as their sick ‘party shower’ this May.

As dopey, deranged and delusional Sarah, Duchess of York is hit with a £19 million lawsuit and is told to pay up, we again ask: “Did she ever repay the loans and other benefits she took from the known-to-her-to-be-a-paedophile Jeffrey Epstein?”
That JPMorgan Chase & Co. executive Mary Callahan Erdoes excused Jeffrey Epstein being a paedophile with “oh boy!” and “I don’t know what to believe” emails is proof of how rotten-to-the-core that finance house truly is.
As author Kirby Sommers suggests that the then Meghan Markle likely spent time with Prince Andrew and Jeffrey Epstein before she met Prince Harry, we again highlight the mucky, murkiness and mendacious manner of this alleged “yacht girl.”

The grounds and setting are definitely spectacular. What a wonderful place to live. How is the fishing there?
Very good fishing spot and only 30 minutes by boat to the ocean
Great joint this one!!!!!!!!!!!!! Looks great!!!!!!!!!!! Hawkesbury River is the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Great fishing and if I had the dollars I’d be buying and building a little jetty where I could have my Castlemaines with my Sheilas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wow. How incredibly special to have so much land and river frontage so close to the city. Love that the residence is single level. What a truly special and unique offering.
It seems like a most charming spot. I could imagine J. R. Hartley liking it very much.
Absolutely spectacular! I spent many many years visiting Bar Point on the Hawkesbury at our holiday house there. Loved every moment there. Fishing is awesome and so close to metro Sydney. What an amazing dream home Julian!
I have had the great pleasure of being Julian’s guest on occasion and can honestly say this is the closest thing to paradise that I have seen.
…..and believe I’ve seen some places !!
