Staff reporterNovember 25, 20200 min read

Stable Manor, the Wallace estate, just 99 kilometres north-west of Melbourne on the outskirts of Ballarat, has been listed for sale.

The four bedroom home is set on three acres at 4 Erin Court.

It has been listed by Barry Plant Ballarat agent Elizabeth Minogue.

Its history dates back to the mid-19th century and the 1869‘ Maryville estate.

Its former stables, characterised by a gable roof form clad in corrugated galvanised steel, date back to John Carroll, an Irish immigrant farmer.

He lived and farmed on the property until his death in 1901, where he then passed the farm onto his nephew, Richard Carroll Jnr, who farmed and lived there until his death in 1949.

From the early 20th century, Richard Carroll was also a director of the Wallace and Millbrook Butter Factory and owned the Maryville Hotel.

The home itself was built in 1999, taking inspiration from Gunston Hall, an 18th-century Georgian mansion located near the Potomac River in Mason Neck, Virginia, in the United States, the home of one of America’s founding fathers George Mason.
