Over the past few decades, Orani Vineyard and Fruit Farm set in a beautiful location overlooking Pittwater near the historic township of Sorell has built a reputation for the production of super premium grapes for award-winning table wines and fresh in-season berries and stone fruit. In recent years, Pacific oysters grown on two leases have also contributed to the premium offering.
With the hard work done, the business and property is on the market ready for new owners to take it to the next level with room for expansion in all areas if desired and a diversified year-round income stream. Adding to future viability and sustainability is the recent completion of the South East Irrigation Scheme, which runs through the property. There is an entitlement of 15 megalitres, complementing the 100 megalitre dam.
Currently there is a busy cellar door outlet and shopfront, oyster production facility, fruit orchards (cherries, apricots, raspberries, peaches and apples), a 3 hectare vineyard planted to Riesling and Pinot Noir and a magnificent modern and stylish homestead with farm stay accommodation. There are two leases attached to the oyster farming part of the operation: one on site at Pittwater and the second at Boomer Bay nearby. The oysters are processed at the farm and exported under the brand Ironstone Oysters to established channels locally, interstate and overseas. A manager will stay with the business to continue operating the oyster farm if required.
All irrigation for crops is computerised.
The homestead itself is striking in its presence, colour scheme, design features and quality furnishings, more at home in a Vogue magazine. It features a state-of-the-art kitchen with black granite benchtops, island bench, walk in pantry, Sassafras joinery and Tas Oak flooring. The open plan dining, informal sitting area and formal lounge is quite stunning. The home features wide hallways, double doors at every access point, ceiling fans, ducted central heating and vacuum throughout, a huge deck to take in the amazing water and mountain views and maximum storage options.
The design is such that it also could easily be adapted to a caf &xE9; or restaurant with accommodation if required with four double bedrooms, three bathrooms and two kitchens in the layout. With just under 50 hectares in the offering, there is room for expansion options.
The location is ideal from a visitor numbers perspective, 5 minutes from Sorell with its local pubs, eateres, supermarkets and shops and on the Arthur Highway to Port Arthur, one of the top 3 visited sites in Tasmania. It is 15 minutes from Hobart Airport and 30 minutes from the CBD. It also is close to historic Richmond and the Coal Valley vineyards.
