Serenading 46 scenic hectares (approx.) of beautiful rolling hills, this architect designed four bedroom, two bathroom plus a study residence is set in one of Main Ridge's most highly regarded and tightly held locations and includes the opportunity to purchase an established food destination site, the iconic Main Ridge Dairy.

This stunning lifestyle property encompasses everything you could ever wish for and with flexibility to grow. Being over 40 hectares, the property is deemed commercial allowing for the possibilities of a restaurant, hotel or other commercial applications to be considered.

Private and well setback from the road, the passive solar designed family home was architect designed in 2003 and extended in 2008. Articulated and textural, the open-plan design features underfloor heating and banks of windows that dissolve into the scenery beyond. A north-facing paved alfresco patio provides a beautiful spot to entertain beneath a vine draped pergola, while a deck to the south provides a cool place of retreat in summer. The house is wrapped in bird attracting native gardens with an established orchard and vegetable garden, while the house features 3KW solar panels, two car garage, two car carport, 45,000L water storage, 3 phase power and a worm farm wastewater treatment plant.

The property intertwines with two arms of Main Creek with significant stands of remnant vegetation, wildlife corridors, shelter belts and all weather vehicle laneways. Extensive amenity incudes a work shed with lockable machinery bay, dairy shed with 38,000L water storage, hay shed and an additional shed that could be converted into an indoor equestrian arena. The holding features 30 well fenced paddocks all with automated water supply and rich fertile soils sown with improved pastures, 8 dams, equestrian sand arena built in 2018, 2.5 stables with yards and tack room, 2 looseboxes with attached yards and 2 kid raising sheds.

The popular tourist attraction has a Liquor Licence, council approval to operate 5 days a week and 16 car spaces with extensive overflow parking. The business is a multi-award winner including "Australian Champion Medium Producer for 2019" at the Australian Food awards. A range of twelve different goat cheeses were crafted in the Farmhouse factory and sold in the attached sales outlet, as well as sold through wholesale distribution to deli's, restaurants and supermarkets. The sale of the business includes all plant within the factory and café, stock, food safety programs, goats and dairy plant.
