Here’s a sweet opportunity, particularly if you’ve ever dreamed of owning your own chocolate factory.
This Murrumbateman property, affectionately named Boolarong, offers the complete package; the Robyn Rowe Chocolates business, a retail outlet and a four-bedroom cottage, all on 9.6 hectares of prime pasture and woodland.
Award-winning Robyn Rowe Chocolates is renowned for its handcrafted sweet delicacies made with the finest Belgian chocolate.
It has hosted guests including a prime minister, ambassadors and celebrities and has enjoyed a strong media profile.
George Southwell of Ray White Canberra/Yass says a new owner could continue the business, but it would be up to them.
“It’s certainly established a great reputation over the years, but there are other options,” he says.
“For example, the retail outlet could be converted into a second dwelling (subject to council approval) as a short-term rental.”
Southwell says the opportunity could suit someone looking for a tree change or an entrepreneur with a vision to grow the business.
The property features grazing pastures, woodland hills and a permanently flowing creek.
The home is within established gardens that provide complete privacy from the business operations. The residence features an open-plan kitchen-dining-living area highlighted by timber-framed windows.
There’s a main bedroom with an en suite and direct access to the verandah, while three further bedrooms share the main bathroom.
