After a long career in all aspects of the Thoroughbred industry vendors Phil and Fiona Sloane have their large and prominent Thoroughbred property, Ridgeview Stud, on the market.
Located only 10 kilometres east of the Northern Highway and midway between Bendigo and Elmore the property is ideal for use as a stallion farm, for broodmare agistment, or as a racehorse pre-training facility given its easy access from the important Thoroughbred racing centre of Bendigo.
Ridgeview Park is offered as the home property of 104 hectares (258 acres) on which all the building improvements are located, with the option of purchasing the adjoining Lot 2 comprising 35.6ha (88.19ac) of fertile pasture with two road frontages and three paddocks each with a dam.
Ridgeview Park features an impressive breeding barn of 19 stable boxes including six stallion boxes. There are nine foaling down paddocks supported by a brick foaling barn with five boxes, round yards plus an electric six horse walker.
There are ample water resources with dams of 14 and 11 megalitres in size and 100,000 litres of rainwater storage.
Support buildings include a hay shed, a large lock up machinery shed with all the paddock infrastructure based around a well-designed laneway access system.
There are also extensive housing facilities including the main four-bedroom, two-bathroom double-brick homestead of about fifty squares, with a fully self-contained guest wing and a large management office.
The agents say Ridgeview Park will sell for well under its current replacement value, with an expected sale price in excess of $900,000.
