Named Ravenswood, the property lies in Hesket on the northern side of Mount Macedon and has been owned by Keddie and her husband since late 2014.
The couple have used it as a retreat and spend time there with their 2 year old son when they’re not in their city residence in the inner Melbourne suburb of Elwood.
Fantauzzo described the escape to Fairfax Media in 2014, saying “I love it because it snows in winter and it’s beautiful in summer. I can go for a meal at the pub and when I’m driving home I drive really slowly because there are kangaroos and wombats crossing the road.”
So familiar are we with Keddie’s city-slicking character of Nina Proudman and her fabulous home in the TV series, the Logie-winning actress has a real-life love of horses and the country property encompasses a working stable complex, with the grounds including mature trees, a stunning lake and sweeping views across the farmland and Mount Macedon, including nearby Hanging Rock.
The 43 hectares of farmlands are in impeccable condition and include a well-tended vegetable garden and chook shed. The home has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms with a luxurious freestanding bath overlooking views of the farm, along with generous verandah space for relaxing and entertaining.
The property is listed for $2,150,000 by agent Sandi Mueller of Keatings, who recommends it either as a weekender or a permanent home, saying it was in “one of our most popular locations in the Macedon Ranges, only minutes from iconic Hanging Rock and from the ever-popular and thriving Woodend village.”
