Ryelands Farm is a robust, working property of immense natural beauty with street frontage connecting to the Woodend township 1 hours drive from Melbourne CBD.
It is the farm itself that will beguile you. Approximately 126 hectares (311 acres) of rolling land mottled beautifully with 10 hectares of bush, abutting the Woodend golf course. Its contours hide vistas for many a sudden reveal. Five Mile Creek runs through the property which is contained and sectored by four kilometres of fenced treelines of over 8,000 trees. Ringed by wooded hills to the north and east, including views of Mt Macedon and Hanging Rock, the outlooks are both expansive and private. It boasts an architect-designed two-storey 3 bedroom wooden farmhouse renovated with quality colonial-period detail, surrounded by wide verandahs commanding excellent views. A balcony overlooks the mod-grass tennis court. The garden is a parkland of lawns and mature trees, amid which there is a lake with an island reached by a bridge.
The property is built for efficiency and productivity. Nineteen paddocks with troughs. There is an extensive graveled laneway system for movement of stock. Substantial underground water infrastructure transfer water between the farm's dams. Modern cattle yards, machinery shed, workshop, garden shed, and stable/shed. Ryelands Farm's estimated carrying capacity of 2,000 DSE, alongside average annual fodder production of 200 bales of hay makes it a commercially attractive propostion. Ryelands’ loveliness belies its energy. It’s slightly disconcerting that a place so beautiful is also a functioning business. Like a Rolex; an exquisite piece of jewellery that performs its task perfectly.
