Being offered for the first time in over 100 years is “The Tops”. Located just 18 km from Woolbrook in the Walcha shire.
Consisting of 1800 acres in total, “The Tops” is being offered in 2 portions, the main block 1300 acres of semi open undulating grazing country, and 500 acres of rolling hills just a short distance from the main property known as “Branch Creek”.
Predominately fertile granite soils, at an elevation of 1100 m with an average rainfall of 900 mm (36") this property is ideally suited to a breeding operation or opportunity trading in a big year. The country is mostly open grazing country with a scattering of shelter timber across the property of String Bark with some Box timber.
The pastures consist of mostly Clover and Ryegrass with a good fertilizer history of annual to bi-annual applications of Single Super prior to the drought.
1300 acres of undulating to flat open grazing country, rising to granite out crops with shelter timber across the property. The property is subdivided into 11 paddocks, serviced by 14 dams, mostly spring fed and all cleaned out in 2019 and a permanent creek. The boundary consists of timber and netting in good stockproof condition, with some new Ringlock fencing recently carried out. The internals are a mix of Ringlock with some plain wire fencing.
“The Tops” is both equally suited to sheep and/or cattle with good improvement to service both. There is a solid 3 stand shearing shed with 3 phase power and a closed in skillion with the capacity to hold 500 head. A large timber and steel set of sheep yards (capacity 1200 hd), with a second set of yards at the other end of the property (capacity 400 hd). There is also a new set of M & M steel cattle yards with vet crush.
The property also boasts 2 comfortable and well appointed 3 bedroom homes. The main, originally a Lloyd kit home in well established garden. Open plan kitchen and dining area, formal dining and lounge area over looking to the west of the property. The 2nd home again 3 bedroom, weatherboard with steel cladding in good neat and tidy condition. Both have reverse cycle a/c.
500 acres of rolling hills with some steeper country, “Branch Creek” is a highly productive grazing property with majestic high country views. Predominately granite country service by dams and a permanent creek (Branch Creek) this property would make an excellent add on or wether block. There are steel sheep yards on the property. The boundary fence is from new H/J to good stock proof netting fences. There are good tree stands of Stringy Bark and Box with some Kurrajong scattered over the property.
