Burnham Beeches

This luxurious mansion was constructed between 1929-1933 for Alfred Nicholas, an astute businessman who is best known for manufacturing and selling aspirin in Australia in the 1920’s and 1930’s.

The property obtained its name from the Beech trees located in UK. This was significant because one of Nicholas’ company was located in Buckinghamshire, UK. The mansion has, over the years, undergone renovation in order to restore its glory and modernise it for use today.

In addition to the original building, Burnham Beeches also has two newer buildings constructed in the 1980s. Plans are in the works to turn the historic mansion into a 6-star hotel.

Apart from the plush mansion, the estate also boasts lush gardens against the background of beautiful countryside. The greenhouses on location grows vegetables, while the mill has become an affiliated micro-brewery, known for having the best beer in the Dandenong Ranges.
