Nardoo, a Riddells Creek country property in Victoria's Macedon Ranges has been sold by Dr Paul Carter, who published memoirs in his book Tales of a Country Doctor, then his 2014 publication, Further Tales of a Country Doctor.

Since being taken up in the late 1880s, the 165 hectare estate has been owned by only a few.

Ivor Manton, one of two brothers who ran the then prestigious Manton's department store, was a prior owner.

During World War II prisoners of war were kept at the property. Four Italian prisoners worked on the farm during the day and were locked-up in the upper storey of an outbuilding at night.

Nardoo is split up in to three lots and has three houses, stables, a tennis court and a three hole golf course. The custom-built main house was designed by Alistair Knox in the 1970s. It comes with Matchem Skipper-designed chandeliers.

Kennedy & Hunt agent Jason Kennedy had the listing with $4 million to $4.4 million hopes.

The property, with 25 paddocks, came with shearing shed that can handle 150 sheep at a time.

There was a stallion standing area, stallion parade area, amphitheatre and function centre  

It came with three stable complexes, totalling 15 stables including mare & foal stable, nine post and rail quarantine day yards, and a vetting facility  

The farm had 1.4 metre electric rail/wire mesh fencing, along with 2 metre high perimeter kangaroo proof fencing.
