The historic Euroa butter factory in Victoria's Strathbogie Shire has sold.

The 1900's building 160 kilometres north east of Melbourne had been operating as a country style wedding and function venue in recent years.

The property at 79 Boundary Road North Euroa sits amid two hectares of gardens, a popular space in the summer months.

The garden function space can seat 160 people, while the indoor rooms can seat around 100. 

There are eight accomodation suites including a two bedroom managers quarters.

The suites have retained many of the original features of the factory, including exposed red brick walls and parts of original machinery attached to the ceilings and walls.

There are a number of guest lounge areas, breakfast room and bar and a commercial kitchen. 

Colliers International agent Kim McQueen sold the property which when initially listed late last year had an asking price of $2.5 million to $2.8 million.

It last traded for $710,000 in 2004.

The opening of the factory marked the expansion of the then colony of Victoria's dairy industry in the 1890s. It produced more than 270 tonnes of butter and six tonnes of cheese.
