post-header

One of New South Wales’ iconic properties, ‘Mount Ashby Estate’, has been listed for sale. This expansive French-inspired estate, which includes the boutique ‘La Palette’ restaurant and an operational vineyard, sits comfortably in the highly coveted Southern Highlands region.

The estate, located at 140 Nowra Road in Moss Vale, spans a whopping 40.47 hectares. Its offering presents a compelling mix of luxury rural lifestyle and potential for tourism expansion, given the right development.

A noteworthy aspect of this property is its existing development. The estate features a master-built primary residence set amid broad landscaped gardens, which overlook a large man-made dam, stables and a 2.5-hectare vineyard. Notably, the grapes harvested from this vineyard are handpicked, bottled, and sold through the on-site restaurant.

Andrew Graham, Director at LAWD, mentioned that Mount Ashby Estate represents a unique prospect for potential buyers. “The property’s SP3 Tourist zoning, exclusive to a limited number of properties within Wingecarribee Shire, coupled with its existing infrastructure, sets the stage for further tourism development,” said Mr Graham.

Another distinct advantage of this property is its prime location. Already approved for the development of a 170-seat function centre, it also has conceptual plans for a luxury hotel and cabins.

Interestingly, the property has been developed over the years by local personality Sally Beresford and her late husband Chris Harvey. Their innovative use of recycled natural materials and repurposed buildings has added a unique charm to the estate.

Mr Graham gave a nod to their creative approach, “A prime example of their vision is the character produce store, a 1921 corrugated iron building saved from the Bowral Aldi redevelopment site. The building was featured in the Australian film, ‘Ginger Meggs’, and today showcases locally made timber tables and is used for restaurant dining and special functions.”

This listing presents a rare opportunity for those interested in securing a piece of Southern Highlands luxury.
