‘Drover’s Run’ site, once home to McLeod’s Daughters, sells again.

South Australian boutique hotel Kingsford The Barossa, previously the location for much-loved Nine drama McLeod’s Daughters, has been sold.

Melbourne fund manager Salter Brothers has paid an as yet undisclosed price for 68 Kingsford Road, Kingsford, which recently underwent a $10 million refurbishment as a boutique accommodation venue with 16 suites.

Pastoralist Stephen King, commissioned the two-storey, Georgian-style sandstone house in 1856 – it’s thought that the stone was transported from Edinburgh as ship’s ballast.

Nine bought the property in 2000 , at a rumoured for $380,000, from long-term owner Tom Fotherington to become ‘Drover’s Run’. 224 episodes of McLeod’s Daughters were produced over seven years, screened in 41 countries.

It was sold in 2008 and opened in 2012 as a boutique accommodation. Major extensions began in 2020 with three bars, a 21 metre wine cellar, a German-themed bowling alley and a saltwater pool.

“We are delighted to acquire this beautiful property which will complement our existing portfolio of boutique luxury hotels and retreat,” Mr. Salter said. “We look forward to the opportunity to put Salter Brothers touches on a premium asset.”
