The three properties known as Netley Park, Kays and Moyhall combine to make up an area of 500 hectares (1235 acres), all in the Struan Gum Point district just south of Naracoorte, and are now listed for sale.

The properties may be purchased as a whole or in lots.

Netley Park is well located just 10 kilometres south of Naracoorte on the main Riddoch Highway offering excellent main road frontage adjacent the Naracoorte Caves intersection being prominent for a livestock stud and or vineyard public exposure.

The property was settled in 1886 by the Kidman family while freehold was granted in 1901 and has continued in the same family ownership since.

The old woolshed which is still in use was constructed in 1903 followed by the original stone home in 1907, both from local stone.

The current home was constructed circa 1928 also from local stone in the Californian Bungalow style.

The home is built on a limestone ridge offering a sound foundation and a cellar which has always remained dry.

The rich red soils combined with the high quality underground bore water combine to create many garden opportunities including deciduous trees, citrus and roses.

Soils on the farming and grazing land comprise red, black and grey heavy clay loams over limestone being naturally fertile and productive.

A prominent limestone ridge traverses the Netley Park property which may facilitate a vineyard while also offering excellent livestock protection.

Large Red Gum trees provide shade and shelter on the Netley Park holding which are in excellent health.

Production has been focussed mainly on livestock in the form of beef cattle and sheep while the immediate district is noted for grazing, cropping, hay and irrigation.

Additional land and water licence may be procured should a prospective purchaser require irrigation water or a larger holding.

Netley Park comprises 209.2 hectares, Kays 184.9 hectares and Moyhall 105.2 hectares.

Expressions of Interest close on December 11.
