"DABYMINGA" 1175 Acres(500 Hectares Approx) , 7 Titles, 11 Dams 5 Homes
Spread across close to 500 verdant hectares of undulating landscape on the northern slopes of Victoria?s Great Dividing Range, Dabyminga is a property which offers untold, exciting opportunities in some of Victoria?s most beautiful scenery. This property is a little over one hour?s drive out of Melbourne and houses an already successfully established vineyard, blue gum plantation, accommodation as well as an impressive list of practical and luxury amenities.
The 34 acre vineyard, planted from the mid eighties to the early nineties, produces up to 150 tonnes of super premium fruit per annum, which is contracted to other wineries or distributed under two award-winning labels ? Tallarook Wines and Terra Felix. The sunny but cooler climate provides the vineyard with the opportunity to develop varieties from the Northern Rhone region in France, including Marsanne, Roussanne, Viognier and Shiraz, in addition to the more traditional flavours of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
Supported by extensive infrastructure, the property is connected by approximately 2 kilometres of sealed road. The property includes significant shedding, fuel storage, and water storage. In addition to over 10 smaller dams, the primary water supply comes from the 85 megalitre dam which doubles as a beautiful body of water to swim and boat in. The farm is suitable to hold livestock and horses, with concrete post fencing throughout, a four-stand shearing shed and covered stockyards of 1,500 head capacity. A 15-hectare blue gum plantation will be ready for harvest in coming years.
Four recently renovated homes provide private, contained accommodation offering various stunning views: the valley, state forest, vineyard and creek. The houses provide opportunities for private rental or bed and breakfast accommodation. Original horse stables have been converted to a dynamic studio ? an ideal space for functions or accommodation. The cellar door is a converted vintage train carriage with amenities including kitchenette and bathroom.
There are significant opportunities to live self-sufficiently on this property, with an established herb and vegetable garden and an orchard which bears cherries, apples, pears, several stone fruit varieties as well as various citrus. Small olive groves are scattered throughout the property as well as a considerable variety of nut trees including almonds, chestnuts and walnuts.
There is boundless space for kids to run and play, with a small playground and swings hanging from the high limbs of the 200 year-old gum trees. The secluded creek that bubbles through the property and the state forest bordering the eastern side of the property provides opportunities to explore nature and spot native wildlife including kangaroos, wombats, echidnas, lizards and the many native birds. A beautifully situated in-ground pool and full-sized tennis court provide entertainment for children and guests alike.
