Springhurst Butter Factory is a unique piece of Australian history, transformed into a rustic function and accommodation centre, including a charming residence full of old-world character.
Originally established in 1893, built on the current site in 1913 and closed as a butter factory in 1968, it's been lovingly and carefully restored over the past 11 years.
With a multipurpose layout, Springhurst Butter Factory offers the opportunity for families to live and work onsite in several different types of businesses, or simply enjoy a relaxed semi-rural lifestyle in this majestic and historic building.
The main building houses the private residence, enormous multi-purpose rooms, several storage rooms, honeymoon suite, four further accommodation bedrooms, two bunk rooms plus a male and female toilet block. Wide passageways, a covered walkway and an outdoor garden help to separate the individual spaces.
The beautiful double-storey, four-bedroom private residence has been tastefully renovated with a combination of modern convenience and rustic charm.
Featuring an expansive open-plan kitchen/dining with highlights including pressed metal splashback, feature pendants and wood heater, a stunning bathroom with claw foot bath, antique style vanity plus shower, polished concrete floors and near new carpet, two living areas plus a large office with double-sided fireplace.
Connected to the rear of the main building are two mirror-image. self-contained two-bedroom units with a front veranda overlooking the beautiful vine-covered alfresco area.
Ideal for weddings and other large special events, the function centre is the epitome of country charm with barn doors, timber walls and exposed beams, an indoor bar, covered outdoor bush kitchen and extensive open-air alfresco area overlooking the gardens.
A huge nine-by-18-metre Colourbond shed with concrete floor and three roller doors is tucked away to the rear of the property for additional secure storage while the extensive grounds provide ample space for function parking.
This property is set on the banks of Diddah Diddah Creek on approximately 3.5 acres. It's one kilometre from the Hume Highway and 30 minutes from Albury/Wodonga.
Families can enjoy a semi-rural lifestyle with the local primary school only a few minutes' walk, and the closest high school just over 10 minutes' drive away.
Positioned within the cycling country of the popular Murray to the Mountains Rail Trail, and with the tourist hubs of Beechworth and Rutherglen within 30 minutes, Springhurst Butter Factory is an ideal location for a weekend getaway, stopover between Melbourne and Sydney or as an educational recreational facility.
