How’s this for a sweet deal?
A berry good offering ripe for the picking has hit the market in a town 36km northeast of Melbourne, and could prove a sweet deal for buyers.
The 4.17ha strawberry farm in Coldstream, just beyond Lilydale and bordering the Yarra Valley, has a $1.4-$1.5 million price tag.
The property at 766-768 Maroondah Highway is home only to a shed, berries and a dam.

The strawberry farm at 766-768 Maroondah Highway, Coldstream has a $1.4-$.15 million price tag.
The site is home only to a shed, dam and berries.
It has been rented by berry farmers who sell their produce to a national market but have decided to cease operation.
Ray White Lilydale agent Bruno Cascianelli said the site offered a plethora of options for the next owners and was a lifestyle property.
“It’s really a blank canvas for someone to take to a whole new level,” Mr Cascianelli said.
“There are not many sites like this, of that size, in that area.”
“It’s really a blank canvas,” Mr Cascianelli said
The rural block has green wedge zoning, an overlay which protects the non-urban land in the Yarra Ranges for its agricultural, environmental, historic, landscape or recreational values. Mr Cascianelli said it was a clear site that could be used by a range of things, including a winery or just a dream home.
“The potential is a matter up to the individual, it could have horses or vineyards and they can tailor a home to suit their specific needs,” he said.
“It could be an out of area buyer looking to set up tent here for the lifestyle or locals looking to expand their current operations.
