'MARAPANA' : Graze, breed, feed or ride - 5 freehold titles on 436ha geared for large scale farming.

At last. A superbly presented, well located Adelaide Hills rural landholding bringing panoramic prime countryside, incredible scale, a pair of well-appointed homes, and the broadest possible scope for a range of agricultural pursuits on 1,079 sweeping acres (436 hectares).

And for the horse enthusiast, an Olympic sized horse arena measuring 60m x 40m – more than enough to accommodate show jumping.

Just 45 minutes from the Adelaide CBD, even closer to a host of Eastern suburbs schooling, 2kms from Ashbourne, roughly midway between Goolwa and Meadows, and 14kms to Strathalbyn, the land embraces 5 freehold titles, a full complement of sheep and cattle yards, sound infrastructure and shedding plus soils suitable for high capacity breeding, fattening or backgrounding operations.

It sums up a solid commercial-ready operation all set to roll; and with strong spring pasture growth, it adds the certainty of a strategic land banking opportunity, now almost impossible to source in these near-city pockets.

With 2 homes on site, the 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom double brick homestead, angled intentionally across sweeping easy-care grounds, exploits far-reaching rural views to Lake Alexandrina, The Coorong and Goolwa.

Fresh, modern, and light-bathed interiors are bound by walls of glass, a bound-for-entertaining paved terrace and mature shade, creating a calm and sophisticated scene for the family, grazier, hobby rider or equestrian.

Alternatively, the slightly smaller, brick-veneer 3-bedder makes an easy-care manager’s retreat or comfortable guest stay with reverse cycle air conditioning and combustion heating.

Rural, remarkably versatile, yet surprisingly close to convenience – mark the multitude of ways can you measure Marapana’s worth…
