This undulating parcel is a mostly cleared 10.9 hectare (27 acres) farmlet with postcard views to Mt Macedon and neighbouring farmland. A rare offering in a highly sought after district, this hilltop sanctuary is around 10 minutes to Kyneton, 6 minutes from Malmsbury and only 90km (60 minutes) from Melbourne Airport.
The surrounding area has an exemplary reputation as a cool climate grape growing area, and for permaculture.
• The sunny north, east and west facing slopes present a viable viticulture option, as the region is well known for producing cool climate wines, having been reintroduced by Tom Lazar, formerly ‘Virgin Hills vineyard’, on Salisbury Road in 1968.
• Access from both Honeysuckle Road and Salisbury Road
• Reliable dam
• Nearby rural properties have bores that tap into aquifers and a Land Capability Assessment reveals potable groundwater at approx. 10m below the surface. The property would support a sustainable agricultural enterprise such as a vineyard, olive grove or stone fruit orchard.
• The property would be suitable for equine activities, which Macedon Ranges Shire Council see as a favourable form of land use.
Note, the property is zoned Farming (FZ) and there is no ‘As Of Right’ ability to build a dwelling on the property under the Macedon Ranges Shire Planning Scheme. A Planning Permit will be required, and we can give no guarantee that a Permit will be granted, notwithstanding there have been some recent planning approvals on similar size farmlets that were supported with an adequate Farm Management Plan.
