GET THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS AT THIS STUNNING COASTAL HIDEAWAY
This magnificent property, located just 17kms from the Geraldton CBD and all its amenities, offers the perfect blend of lifestyle and productivity.
Situated on 114 hectares (281 acres) in the White Peak district, "The Ponderosa" is surrounded on two sides by a beautiful nature reserve (featuring towering peaks and natural creek lines, which run into the headwaters of the Buller River). Despite its very rural setting, it actually adjoins "Parkfalls", Geraldton's most northern estate, and is about 5 minutes drive from Drummond Cove - ideal for setting your craypots!
The property blends beautifully into the nature reserve, and it is hard to believe that a semi-rural suburb (and one of Geraldton's nicest at that) adjoins it.
The 2002 built, double brick homestead features five bedrooms, two bathrooms, study and double garage. Beautiful landscaped gardens, with rock features surround this lovely house. These fit seamlessly into the existing native vegetation. Its position on the landscape is equally as stunning, with the homestead tucked up against the hillside. The position of the house, with rock walled terraces enhancing its elevated position, provides stunning views of the Indian Ocean, the local topography, and the farmland.
Apart from the homestead and shed areas, all of "The Ponderosa" is productive, with about 80HA (200 acres) arable. District agricultural best practise applies to all enterprises, with lime sand applied and strong rates of fertiliser applied. Sandy loams produce excellent hay crops, with 1500 round bales grown last season. Normally 100 ewes and progeny are carried. Cattle have been run until recently.
Infrastructure on "The Ponderosa" is excellent, with cattle and sheep yards, a 9m x 18m machinery/shearing shed (single stand). The fences are mostly ringlock, with either barbed wire or an electric top wire and in excellent condition. There are also some internal electric fences.
"The Ponderosa" has scheme water through the property, which is gravity fed to water points (with additional electric pump to the house). Additional water infrastructure is outstanding with five dams, two 45,000 litre tanks for livestock, seven additional tanks for water storage and security, and one 22,700 rainwater tank for house.
Eight solar panels sit on the machinery shed, with the inverter supplying power to the property, supplementing mains electricity.
There is nothing left to do, "The Ponderosa" has it all.
