The centrepiece of a family’s rural retreat and productive farm, The Barn provides gathering and entertaining spaces for the family and their guests. It is accessed via a new bridge over Pencil Creek (which feeds Obi Obi creek) and through extensive landscaped gardens and creek banks.
The Barn sits on a raised area within a paddock and offers commanding views both up the valley to Mapleton Falls to the east, and to the west into the Obi Obi valley. The Barn has been designed to allow for future changes of use, services for which have been integrated into the current build. It is envisioned that in time the property could function as Paddock to Plate Restaurant and Regenerative Farm Retreat. The Barn is self-sufficient with rainwater tanks, an 18kw photovoltaic array combined with battery storage, and on site sewage treatment system, and prolific integrated food production.
