Ravenswood Run

ONE of the region’s most historic and prized properties has been sold.

After a long campaign stretching back to last November’s auction by local agents McKean McGregor, Ravenswood Homestead, located at 4912 Calder Highway, Ravenswood, has been sold by agents Jellis Craig for an undisclosed sum.

Billed as the birthplace of Bendigo, the property had been listed for sale at $2.85 million.

It was purchased by former Hashtag proprietor Corey Scoble in 2014, and underwent a major overhaul, with improvements including the transformation of numerous outbuildings into boutique accommodation.

The recently converted stables seats 150 guests in the restaurant and function centre.

Ravenswood Run was the first and the most substantial homestead built in the Bendigo district.

The property includes 14.2 hectares of rolling hills and landscaped gardens, a 10-megalitre dam, 2.7-megalitre water right, solar heated swimming pool and 270,000 litre capacity water tanks.
