Situated just north of the Gumlu township this 197 acre farm is located in a strong horticultural area which supplies much of the fresh produce that goes south to the markets.
Currently used for livestock grazing, cattle and horses, it is divided into useable paddocks which have been managed under time-controlled grazing practices for the past 7 years. The current owners have baled hay from the property as an additional income stream.
Heavily grassed with native species such as Mitchell, Flinders, Indian Couch and over sowed with improved pasture species of Urochloa, Bambatsi Panic, Katambora Rhodes, Buffell grass, Secca, Verano and Butterfly Pea, the country has a heavy carrying capacity for livestock.
The 4-bedroom block home is fully air conditioned and has a beautifully renovated fresh interior with plank flooring and a large modern kitchen. The open plan kitchen, dining and living area is spacious and practical. A newly renovated bathroom offers a luxurious feel with sleek black freestanding tub, walk in shower and timber wall vanity with twin basins. Step down to a generous tiled rumpus/playroom/media room large enough for a pool table which serves as both a family zone or place for entertaining.
3 phase power supplies the 25 x 24 mtr steel framed shed which has a 16 x 9 mtr skillion attached. Once used as a packing shed it could easily be converted to handle any kind of produce or continue to use as a workshop.
A self-contained granny flat containing 2 bedrooms, kitchen, toilet and shower, patio area. Self sufficient accommodation, perfect for a caretaker or seasonal workers.
The property is watered from 6 bores (2 with solar) and has 160 megaliters of onsite storage via 2 dams. For irrigation purposes, there is 6’’ mains serviced by a 6” pump on the dam. There is provision to mix the dam and bore water if required.
Situated only 30 minutes South of Ayr and 45 mins North of Bowen, this property has access to some of the best fishing and stunning beaches in Queensland. Airports are 90 minutes in either direction at Townsville or Proserpine.
Potential to either graze or return to horticulture coupled with the ideal position really does call for an inspection. Contact Peter for more info or to arrange a look.
