Lifestyle Living on 64 Acres Complete with a Profitable Farming Business
Mooreville Gardens is a unique farming property hidden from view behind a small forest of trees nestled quietly within the city boundary of Burnie. The property is home to a well-known free-range egg business supplying eggs statewide to shops and local restaurants.
The large home is solid brick with a tiled roof incorporating 4 bedrooms (master with ensuite) and walk-in robe and an office. Bedrooms 2 and 3 have walk-in robes. ALL bedrooms have near floor-to-ceiling windows, plenty of light, privacy and are facing open countryside.
The lounge is open and well-designed for incorporating plenty of furniture with 2 large ceiling fans for cooling in the summer months plus a heater for winter warmth. The lounge partition doors lead into a large kitchen/dining room with a big space for a large dining table, couches and chairs. This leads out to a beautifully positioned large balcony/deck for enjoying family entertaining. Again, all windows in the lounge/kitchen/dining are near floor-to-ceiling windows allowing natural light from dawn to dusk.
Throughout the passage are large storage cupboards (1 of which contains the hot water cylinder).
A covered walkway takes you to the larger than normal double garage which would lend itself to conversion to additional private self-contained accommodation (STCA).
Next to the garage is a 17m x 7m shed which houses the egg processing and storage operation.
Surrounding the home are tidy lawns, shrubs, retaining wall and decorative stones all of which are easy to maintain.
Under new ownership, Mooreville Gardens free-range eggs are ready to be taken on another journey with significant opportunities both in eggs and vegetable growing to generate increasing business. It has been producing free-range eggs for over 8 years. There is a tractor/machinery shed, chick and pullet rearing sheds, laying shed and 7 mobile sheds for birds laying in the paddock.
Whilst crops are no longer grown, previously, vegetables have been grown and sold at farmers markets and a veggie box delivery business, which has, at times, included neighbouring farmers' produce. Niche market crops have also been grown supplying wholesalers.
The farm itself is approximately 50 acres of grass, of which 30 acres is fenced with wallaby wire. The farm drive is about 1 klm and kept in excellent condition. There are 2 creeks running through the farm neither of which have run dry in 30 years of ownership. The remaining bush varies from 100+ year-old gums to a private oasis of rainforest leading to the Cooee Creek.
This is a rare chance for country lovers who want to be near a city, but without any of the usual city trappings. Close by are schools, university, college, TAFE, surf club, boat ramps, micro-brewery, distillery, hospitals, restaurants, multiple sporting grounds and 2 shopping precincts Burnie CBD and Upper Burnie. It is about 20 minutes from the Burnie Airport, around 90 minutes to Launceston and approximately 40 minutes from the Spirit of Tasmania Ferry and Devonport Airport.
This is a potential development opportunity not to be missed. Nestled in the city boundary of Burnie is this outstanding parcel of land to connect to the growing suburbs of Burnie (subject to planning approval).
