A farm property at Berry owned by the Willesee family is now for sale, with a price guide of $5.5 million.
The 166-acre property at 123A Beach Road, Berry is known as 'Willow Farm'.
It is comprised of a farmhouse, a farm stay, usable sheds and a yoga shala.
Formerly a dairy farm it has been running beef cattle since the 1980s, and more recently sheep.
The property was formerly owned by actress and model Carol Willesee, an ex-wife of late veteran journalist Mike Willesee. They divorced in the late 1980's.
She bought the property in early 2003, and set about renovating the 1920s-era homestead.
"Mum was living in the Hunter Valley at the time, and she had a vineyard," one of their daughters, Amy Willesee said.
"She was over the dry conditions, and she was originally from Scotland.
"When she saw this farm was for sale and it was beautiful, lush green, rolling hills it reminded her of Scotland.
"I also think she was ready for a cooler, wetter change.
"It was a spontaneous decision - she saw the ad and fell in love with it."
Amy said her mother had an "amazing eye".
"She did so much incredible hard work; a beautiful renovation on the farmhouse, improved the pastures, re-did the fences, planted loads of trees, beautiful gardens."
Following her mother's death in late 2006, the property was inherited by Amy, a journalist and writer who is married to fellow writer Mark Whittaker.
Since relocating from Sydney to Berry, the family have raised grassfed beef and sheep, grown vegetables and juggled writing with yoga classes.
They have transformed a tractor shed into a yoga studio where regular classes are held overlooking the paddocks.
They have also offered the four-bedroom homestead at Willow Farm as an accommodation, wedding and event space, with Amy running the successful business.
"The yoga studio has been a really nice way to share the farm with the local community," she said.
"People come and do yoga there during the week, and then we have weddings or holiday guests. It's beautiful to see it through their eyes all the time. It's enabled us to look after it really well."
In early March, Mr Willesee died at the age of 76 after a long battle with throat cancer.
Amy said her father's death and the property being listed for sale were unrelated.
"I was already in the process (of selling)... We'd made the decision," she said.
"Dad had cancer for two-and-a-half years and suddenly took a turn for the worse.
"It's unfortunate timing.
"Even though I'm ready to move on, I'm very sad to be leaving the farm because it's so beautiful and we love living there.
"It was my Mum's, and losing my Dad at the same time, it's been a sad time."
Amy said the family would stay in the area, but they wanted to focus more on writing, which has been difficult with a business to run.
"It's been a real gathering place for our family and friends - holidays and special occasions," she said.
"We have three kids, and love the lifestyle of them being able to roam around the farm, go down to the creek.
"They play a game called 'whole farm hide and seek', and if you don't get caught within half an hour you have to come out, because you've got 160 acres to hide on," she laughed.
The selling agent is Carrie Bond from South Coast Prestige Properties.
Ms Bond said the early interest had primarily been from Sydney-siders.
"There's a lot of people in the Sydney area who looking for an escape," she said.
"They love Berry, and with the upgrade of the bypass they can get here within two hours. That's a huge drawcard for people who need to get back to Sydney for work."
