The well known property Stonecrest Cherries is just off the Tasman Highway at Sorell in South East Tasmania, 9km north east of the Hobart Airport and a very short drive to the State"s capital. It is offered for sale as a going concern with all plant and machinery included.
The property is on 2 separate titles: 4ha with an impressive home and packing shed and 3ha of fully netted orchard and a 25ha title with a further 4ha of netted orchard. 12ha of this richly productive title is grazed but is best suited to expanding the orchard and has also been assessed as having outstanding vineyard potential.
Stonecrest sells its cherries in the Brisbane market and in Asia where the brand has recognition in the wholesale markets with a reputation for the quality of its cherries. Stonecrest is accredited to the Freshcare food safety standard and is currently registered to export to China, Taiwan and Thailand.
The house on the property is a beautiful, high quality, architecturally designed solid brick home of 225 square metres (24.2sq) surrounded by garden. Wide verandahs on three sides of the house provide shelter and the large picture windows allow views along the valley.
Stonecrest has a summer water right of 55ML from the Stage 3 SE Irrigation scheme, which is good quality water and a highly reliable supply. There is a 20ML right to take winter water from the Sorell Creek as well as the potential to take winter water from the Stage 3 SE Irrigation scheme. There is capacity to take more water from this scheme.
The Stonecrest packing shed contains a 4 lane GP grader, hydrocooler and 2 cool rooms. The main packing room is chilled. The shed packs out around 500kg per hour.
The current orchard manager and part owner would continue his involvement with Stonecrest if needed and potentially remain a part owner.
As an established business or as a base with which to launch a tourism venture, Stonecrest is a well located, high quality asset with a great reputation in an area set for growth well into the future.
