Earthly Paradise: Beautiful Bellevue Hill Garden

By Danielle Banton

Enclosed by their protective stone walls, the gardens at Rovello lead from the deliciously hot Mediterranean planting, through magnificent terraces to the irridesant pool, tennis court and lawns. It is something out of a European novel.

Complete with a large pergola and an enclosed loggia, the estate has an air of other worldliness about it. Largely unchanged since the 1930s, the gardens have been given a fresh and vibrant injection thanks to the hard work and creativity of renowned landscape designerMyles Baldwin.

The garden follows the traditional pattern for major Italian houses with a sequence of terraces – the main living terrace outside the house, the parterre below it, the water garden (in this case a swimming pool) and then the park. Between each terrace is a richly planted paradise of mini gardens.

It is clear that Myles has lavished love and energy on the gardens at Rovello, and the fruits of his labours are sure to touch all who have the privilege of visiting this special place.

With price expectations around $20 million Rovello was sold by expressions of interest in March this year through agents, Elliott Placks  and Ashley Bierman. For more Information on property in the area contact
