A South Coast rural property that has been in the same family for more than 90 years is now on the market.
'Hillview', located at 255 Minnamurra Lane, Jamberoo is a 25.9-hectare property with a price guide of $4.5 million.
The lush rural parcel of land is being sold as a deceased estate on behalf of the late William 'Ron' Swan.
Mr Swan, who died recently aged 92, was born on the property and lived there all his life.
His son Trevor, one of the executors of the estate, grew up on the property.
"At the time it was very quiet - a quiet, good, fun dairy farm - I have a lot of good memories of working on the farm," Trevor said.
Starting out as 350 acres in the 1920s, 'Hillview' has been farmed by family members, independently or together since that time.
Ron's father Ernest initially bought the 350-acre property in the 1920s.
In the 1950s, Ron bought half of the property from his father, and built the home that sits on the parcel of land now for sale.
The other half was later bought by Ron's brother Ray.
"It was always operated as a dairy farm, both properties, run under the business name of Hillview Dairies Pty Ltd," Trevor said.
"At one time they were the biggest supplier of milk to the Jamberoo area."
During the past decade, Ron sold off two parcels of his land, with the remainder being what's now for sale.
"It's good, fertile land," Trevor said.
"It's been well-farmed and it's in good working condition.
"Dad's brother bought the balance of the property off their father, and it's still operated as a farm, and they still use our land as part of the operation."
Trevor said it was sad for the family to part ways with the property.
"It would be suited to horse people, and also anybody that wanted to run some cattle," he said.
"We've bred some high-profile harness racing horses on the property."
Features include four dams, quality fencing, day stables, undulating and flat terrain plus timber fenced home paddocks.
The timber and new iron roofed family home has been freshly painted throughout, and has three bedrooms with built-ins, one bathroom with separate toilet, kitchen, large living/dining area and a north-facing family room.
Selling agent, Vivienne Marris from Elders Real Estate Jamberoo said a combination of factors related to the COVID-19 pandemic, including restrictions, more people working from home and Sydney-siders looking to isolate had made the rural life in areas such as Jamberoo more appealing.
"It's brought forward many peoples' plans," she said.
