June and Gordon Wilson purchased the estate back in 1995 and lived in Montalto House right up until 2009.
June is a true visionary who spends much of her time working with both our in-house team and various contractors, to bring to life her idea of a wonderfully unique 21 st-century visitor attraction. Passionate and wholly dedicated to the estate, more than anything else she wants visitors to enjoy its past, delight in its present, and re-visit with family and friends time and again.
Gordon is just as passionate about Montalto as his wife and regards ownership of this wonderful estate as both an honour and a privilege. He very much enjoys his role working alongside June and is always willing to do whatever tasks need to be done, to facilitate staff and support June as work progresses on the estate. Our favourite thing about Montalto
The second we set eyes on Montalto over 25 years ago, we both fell in love with it, and we continue to love it a little bit more every day. We both love the tranquillity of the estate and that feeling of being at one with nature. So, while our ‘favourite part’ changes almost every day, right now ‘The Lost Garden’ is where we’re discovering and uncovering lots of wonderful things that have been hidden away since the early part of the 20
th century! Away from work
We have been fortunate to be able to travel the world extensively but are both now very content to spend our time living and working on the estate, and developing it as a business that many of our family are involved in. However, with nine fabulous grandchildren all living nearby, there’s nothing we enjoy more than spending time with them
