Stirling's heritage-listed Forest Lodge and Garden
South Australia: One of the Adelaide Hill's top three 'Hill Station' estates; Forest Lodge and Garden, 19 Pine Street, Stirling -- was listed in February 2020 with hopes of between $4.8 million and $5.2 million.
'Forest Lodge' House, buildings and garden is an example of the grand houses and gardens constructed for Adelaide's wealthy in the Adelaide Hills in the nineteenth century.
"Forest Lodge" is listed in the top three of such estates: “Forest Lodge”, “St.Wilfreds”, and “Wairoa”.
This landmark Adelaide Hills property includes more than six hectares of heritage-listed gardens, and has now hit the market. It will be only the second time in nearly 130 years that the home will change hands.
The grand eight-bedroom, three-bathroom mansion, known as Forest Lodge, at 19 Pine Street, Stirling was listed in February 2020 with hopes of between $4.8 million and $5.2 million.
'Forest Lodge' has been associated, since its establishment, with various members of the Bagot family.
'Forest Lodge' was established by John Bagot in c.1890, a grandson of C H Bagot and himself a wealthy man.
Built in the manner of an English country house, this property had been continuously owned and occupied by the Bagot family - until 2002 when it was sold by Dr. Christopher Bagot, of Melbourne, to the current vendors.
Forest Lodge has a turret, stained-glass windows and stunning garden.
A lot of the classic homes built around that time had a turret to watch the ships come in; while Forest Lodge isn’t near the water, it has stunning views of the gardens around the home.

The grand home, which is also listed on the State Heritage Register, has had some renovations to bring the kitchen and bathrooms into the modern age, but there are still many original features.
Detailed wood-panelling along hallways, a wooden staircase, polished floorboards, open fireplaces and stained-glass windows hark back to when the house was first built.
