RippleVale House, at 4100 Cape Otway Road, Birregurra has been listed for sale.

It is an 1870 landmark Western Districts property set on 75 hectares with Barwon River frontage.

With William Guilfoyle gardens, the six bedroom homestead has a Dutch Italianate influenced grand dining room.

The is also a historic cottage, built in 1865, tennis court, stables, historic shearing shed, storage sheds, plus the gardens and rambling orchid.

Michael Cooney and Maria Nesci at Great Ocean Road Real Estate Lorne have the offering with $4 million plus hopes.

It last traded at $3.1 million in 2007 when bought by Sara Cashman, who is passionate about farm gate pure produce and artisan butchering.

The house was built in 1870 for Charles Sladen, who was premier of Victoria for just 67 days.

It was designed with weekend shooting parties in mind - hence the ballroom, dining hall, wine cellar, pantry, maids' quarters, stables and cool store.

Tessellated tiles and stained-glass windows grace many rooms along with sandstone and Italian marble fireplaces.

The ceilings are lofty and windows are large in the 650 square metre home.

Many of the renovations were undertaken during the ownership of the retired grazier/hotelier Stewart Gray.

Birregurra, which became Victoria's first plastic-bag free town in October 2004, is 15 minutes from Colac.
