Manypeaks is a small, strong rural community with a great school and a general store which services the region.

The pastures are an excellent mix or clovers, ryes and kikuyu grass with these taking advantage of the coastal location and growth rates into the summer months.
The water supplies on Ridgetop can only be explained as exceptional with the Ridgetop Creek running through the property all year round with numerous dams and soaks also providing stock water.
Fertiliser history over many years has been on applications of 140 kilograms to 200kg per hectares, in rotation of soil colour-based management zoning, super and potash plus lime applications in 2017 at 800kg/ha.
Ridgetop is very suited to a grazing property with cattle, sheep and prime lambs being the most suited but in some years small areas could be cropped to mixed grains.
The estimated stock capacity is about 400 to 420 breeders equivalent.
Ridgetop is fenced into 10 main paddocks plus a few smaller holding paddocks with a mix of plain wire, electric and Ringlock all on wood and steel posts with some new over the past few years.
Some paddocks are connected to the central laneway that feeds back to the yards.
Ridgetop has a good brick and tile homestead that commands outstanding ocean views with four bedrooms, two bathrooms, open-plan kitchen, dining and living areas and many other features.
The home is situated to take advantage of the ocean views and over the property, as well as maximising the summer sea breeze.
The property also has a good set of cattle yards and sheep yards and a four-stand shearing shed.
The rainfall over many years in this location is on average above the 600 to 700 millimetres annually and in most years the summer rain generates the growth of summer pastures.
Ridgetop is in a great sought-after location in the South Coastal region and has a wow factor due to its ocean views.
