Agritourism at its best. This 54 hectare property on the banks of the Avon River has it all. Lifestyle, income and productivity.
Lavendale Farmstay and Cottages is a Sustainably Accredited Tourism Business providing a comfortable income offering short stay accommodation to couples, families and groups. The business is licensed to accommodate 46 people in 9 self-contained, purpose built, family style accommodation units. The owners' residence is a magnificent 400 square home built in the style of country homesteads. There is over 200 square metre of living space. Plus, the owners have exclusive use of a 20m lap pool. Each of the accommodation units has a different theme and floorplan. There are 1 bedroom, 2 bedroom and 3 bedroom units and cottages.
The farming land is divided into grazing, crop and forestry areas. As well as the novelty animals of donkeys and ponies, goats and alpacas, to entertain guests, the farm supports a small herd of Dexter cattle and several small mobs of sheep. There is a 9 hectare sandalwood plantation set up in 2005. Oats for hay are grown each year by a share farmer providing feed for the stock with no work involved by the owners.
This is a walk-in walk-out offer of an ongoing, well recognised and successful business. The sale includes 2 tractors with attachments, a well-equipped workshop, a quad bike with spray equipment, hay sheds full of this year's harvest, shelters, storage sheds. Infrastructure also includes a large dining room with commercial kitchen and enough crockery & cutlery etc to serve 46 people.
The property is easily accessed and only 15km from York. This is a stunning small farm, designed to make the most of the natural undulation of the land and nearby granite features. The business is easily run by just 2 people with a small team of casual cleaners. Although currently running at capacity on weekends, there is plenty of opportunity for growth when the international guests return.
