The vendors have owned the property for more than a decade and have developed the property during this time.

The professional couple have shared their time between a busy practise in Melbourne and their Ghin Ghin Ridge property.

The acreage size is largely serviced by a perimeter electric fence and allows 75 cattle to be run.

The paddocks slope from the long bitumen road frontage gently up to the top of a prominent ironstone ridge where the house and its adjacent guest house is situated.

Their location is critical because both have been built in cantilevered steel and concrete to face the property’s two kilometre long frontage to the Goulburn River.

Both the buildings with a combined building area of 278 sqm face to the east and provide a spectacular aspect across the highly productive Goulburn River flats and to the surrounding hills of the Strathbogie Ranges and the nearby village of Yea.

The stylish main house was designed by Sydney based architect Andrew Nolan and completed in 2005.

It is sited in a position where it is not visible from the road while its position also protects it from any prevailing winds which are in the southwest quarter.

The owners, who have used Ghin Ghin Ridge as their weekender with the intent of permanent retirement living, say they wanted it to have a low impact footprint, hence the distinctive cantilevered construction from the ridge.

The home offers a large bedroom with en suite and bathroom, a study, expansive living and dining space with a multiple premium appliance equipped kitchen employing the best finishes.

There’s also a separate cool room and the building has underfloor heating as well as a Cheminees Phillipe fireplace and reverse cycle heating and cooling.

Being ideal for outdoor living immediately adjacent to the house is a terrace and barbeque area with an integrated swimming or lap pool which measures eight metres by three metres and according to the vendors is the centre of all day activity in the warmer weather.

Just a short distance away from the home is the guest house which has been built in the same distinctive modern architectural style.

It features two double bedrooms each with their own en suite with a smaller bunk room together with a small practical kitchen and living area.

All rooms also have reverse cycle heating and cooling units.

The owners of the property say that the guest house was constructed for family accommodation but its use in future could be as a self contained bed and breakfast or for similar overflow or visitor use.

Water resources are also a feature of Ghin Ghin Ridge as the property has a two megalitre stock and domestic water allocation from the Goulburn River with a Hatz diesel pump that supplies one of three 23,000 litre water tanks.

The river water is used for garden irrigation and low level internal needs including toilet flushing while two rainwater tanks also each 23,000 litres harvest the domestic water needs.

There are also two farm dams for the livestock of three and four megalitres in size.

A separate double car port has an abutting lockable store room while the stockyards and a large steel shed also has its own rainwater tank.

Selling agent, Bart O’Sullivan, said he was reluctant to quote a price expectation and simply invited any parties looking for a premium quality weekend property to make an appointment for inspection. “I am confident that it represents a property of the type that has few equals within easy reach of the City,” Mr O’Sullivan said.

“To enjoy this home, the location and to see the sun come up from the east each morning and to experience the views this property delivers to the Goulburn River valley and the hills will be quite an experience for the lucky new owner.”
