Anduramba via Crows Nest - 160 acre farm - So Many Options!
The farm has previoulsy been a deer farm, with fencing in good condition, with some new sections. For the past 14 years it has been used to run cattle, both as a fattening block or for breeding. It can comfortably run 50 steers for fattening or has run 60 cows and 50 weaners season permitting. It safely runs horses due to the clean nature of the paddocks.
The farm is conveniently split into 9 paddocks (including a large house yard) with a lane way system constructed through the centre of the property to assist in moving stock between paddocks and the yards. A set of near new cattle yards with capacity of 100 head are situated at the end of a lead up lane.
A variety of watering options include 1 permanent spring fed dam, 4 other dams that hold water very well, water to the yards, and a watering point that is gravity fed from a 10 000 gallon tank. Every paddock has access to water.
Improved pasture includes rhodes grass, paspalum, panic, wynn cassia and siratro. The farm is lightly timbered with ironbark and gum trees with the back paddock more heavily timbered on the hill but with 95% still usable.
A three bedroom/one bathroom home is situated on a hill with magnificent views down the valley and to Bluff Mountain nearby. A spacious kitchen is part of an open plan living/dining/kitchen area. A 900mm gas oven and stove top, ample bench and cupboard space and large corner pantry are key features of the kitchen.
The bathroom includes the laundry, shower, vanity unit and toilet.
A woodfire with fan feature to promote fast room heating is central to the house and heats the entire house beautifully.There are built ins in each bedroom. A generous eastern verandah and smaller western porch off the main bedroom provide a house that is comfortable and easy to maintain.
Large floor to ceiling windows in the living areas allow uninterrupted views down the valley.
A windmill is situated on a well that is adjacent to the permanent dam and pumps water to the house tank. Water can also be pumped to the house tank via an air pump system for those days when there is no wind. Two water tanks connected to house guttering also contribute to house water.
A gas hot water system provides a never fail hot water supply, and a large solar system provides all the electricity a family needs, with a back up generator linked to the solar system to kick in in the event of solar power failure (which has never happened in 14 years). A septic system is connected to the house.
A 3 bay shed (2 bays lockable) and a shipping container provide ample room to store all vehicles and equipment required to run a farm or to simply live the rural liefstyle.
Surrounded by uninhabited farms this farm is a retreat that allows peaceful living.
Your choice awaits to either run cattle and add to your current income whilst commuting to local towns of Esk, Crows Nest, Highfields or Toowoomba, run the farm as your sole income, run your horses, or simply have the space to spread your family out and live a rewarding rural lifestyle.
