Ex-PM’s farm gate now open
THE keys to Chilgala Farm, first owned by former prime minister are up for grabs for offers of more than $750,000.
“Black Jack” McEwen (pictured) was the leader of the Country Party and deputy prime minister, taking up the prime ministership briefly when Harold Holt went missing and was presumed drowned in 1967.
The 21ha farm at 3072 McEwen Rd, Stanhope South, is in the Goulburn Valley and features eight bedrooms across two homes and a stockman’s cabin.
The sustainable farm has well-established century-old gardens, a large in-ground swimming pool, vegie patches and orchards. Denis Pagan, of Pagan Real Estate, is handling the sale with offers closing December 16.
