Tell me where you can buy approximately 500 acres of good quality red and black scrub soil, (ex cultivation and contoured) plus 350+ acres of very good to fair quality black to grey soil forest country for under $1,000 per acre?
Plus it has a partially renovated, highset, 3 bedroom – 2 bathroom home and connection to the Proston Rural Water Scheme from Boondooma Dam!
It’s in ticky country.
It’s not far out of town at all.
Does it need work?
You bet your life it does!
However, with some time, effort and money, you will end up with a cracking block of a size which is very hard to get hold of in this prized region.
Approximately 60% white and locked in on vegetation mapping. About 35% green with 5% balance Cat A or B orange.
Cleared cultivation country varies from strong red soil to black soil with about 50% of this country having sucker regrowth.
Forest country varies from strong black soil, (in the majority), to lighter grey sandier soil types. This country needs thinning with fire, stick-rake, tordon etc, however it is very good breeder country. Still plenty of very usable timber for milling and fencing.
Not a lot of pasture improvement anywhere on the block, however the country certainly lends itself to Green Panic, Rhodes, Creeping Blue and legumes etc.
External fences are varied from very good 4 line barb to fair whilst internal fencing is in ordinary condition but still holding cattle in 6 current paddocks.
Water is a feature, with the rural water connection to the home and a few troughs a standout. However there is also an unequipped 90 foot deep well, with a 75ft head of potable water.. Plus 3 permanent springs, 2 of which feed 2 very sizable dams.
There is one reasonable 3 bay shed and the yards are wooden and quite basic, however there is a crush and head bale.
If you want a block that will turn your hard work into something very viable, then this is for you! Well developed scrub country in the region has recently sold for $1,650-$1,800+ an acre and good luck getting decent forest country for under $1,000 an acre.
Frightened of a bit of hard yakka? Then best you look elsewhere.
