Thistledown, the Macedon Ranges estate of retired Richmond medical practitioner John Bongiorno, has sold for just over $3 million.

Bongiorno bought the 420 hectare farm in Glenhope, near Kyneton and Lancefield, in 1980. 

He bought the property to give his family a lived experience in a rural environment.
