"Brucelyn"- The Heart of Ben Lomond

    'Brucelyn' is a well appointed, high rainfall, high production, grazing powerhouse, located on top of the great dividing range in the renowned district of Ben Lomond. A district that carries a reputation for consistently producing prime livestock with excellent weight for age for both beef and lamb. The property rises to over 1350 metres above sea level with a temperate climate that enables perennial pastures to thrive in the heavy basalt soils.

    The improvements comprise a well maintained four bedroom two bathroom original homestead. The homestead offers an attractive setting overlooking the historic gardens that feature mature trees and shrubs, stone walls, attractive gardens and manicured lawns. The house yard includes a tennis court, store room, garden shed and garage. A reticulation system ensures ample reserves of water are supplied to the garden as required. Separate from the main entrance is the driveway for the well maintained three bedroom cottage, complete with a fully fenced house yard, garage and garden water. Bus services are available to primary and secondary schools, weekly domestic waste collection.

    The outbuildings include a hayshed with an attached lockable storage shed, machinery shed with attached workshop and kitchen to service the requirements of the woolshed, an original wether shed with a raised grated floor, original horse stables, large chicken and dog runs

    The working infrastructure includes a set of cattle yards which include a drafting pound feeding to an undercover weigh box and vet crush with a two way off scales draft plus a calf race and calf cradle. There are 4 sets of sheep yards with the main set located adjacent to the large three stand electric woolshed.

    The level of water security on 'Brucelyn' is considered very sound. Stock water is supplied via 36 dams - many of which are springfed, Moredun Creek, natural spring fed streams as well as reticulation to troughs located around the main stockyards and holding yards. Considered a real asset is the free flowing bore, sunk in 2004 with a flow rate test of 17.64 litres per second. While the bore remains unequipped it provides a great level of assurance to the level of water security and the opportunity for the development of further troughing.

    'Brucelyn' has benefited from a long standing fertiliser history having been in the current family's ownership for the past 73 years. A well located on-site airstrip caters for practical and efficient aerial topdressing for the entirety of the farm. Established perennial pasture species comprise Phalaris, Fescue and Cocksfoot with an abundance of Clover. There is an opportunity to further drive production and fully utilise the reliable annual rainfall with the development of new pastures. The weather station for Ben Lomond shows 950mm as the average annual recording.

    The property is generally well fenced with a percentage of fencing having been renewed in recent months. 'Brucelyn' is subdivided into approximately 34 main paddocks plus smaller holding paddocks and is considered ideal for operating a rotational grazing management system.

    Having served the current owners since 1948, the time has come to divest the asset. The sale of this tightly held property provides a great opportunity for the new custodians to reap the long term reward as owners of this reliable, high quality grazing farm.
