Historic sheep property 'Warrayure' at Moutajup is on the market for the first time in 40 years and will go under the hammer on November 20.
The heritage listed property, located on an easterly rise with views of the Grampians in Victoria's western district, is an excellent example of early Victorian homesteads.
First taken up as part of the Mt Sturgeon Plains Run by Alexander Cameron, the property transferred to Stephen Henty in 1860 who owned 'Warrayure' until his death in 1872.
Designed by notable architect John Shanks Jenkins, the five bedroom homestead (circa 1860) is constructed of local bluestone.
An extensive range of outbuildings including woolshed, stables and coach house (all designed by Jenkins) were constructed at the same time as the homestead and are in very good condition.
Extensive supporting infrastructure includes three machinery sheds plus an additional building with substantial equine facilities, steel sheep yards, steel cattle yards and four silos of about 2000 bag capacity all in very good condition.
A high level of water security is provided with 11 dams and six bores providing the water supplies to the property.
'Warrayure' is well suited to a range of agricultural pursuits including wool and sheepmeat production, cattle grazing and cropping.
