HOMESTEAD
Surrounded by beautiful park-like gardens & filled with many original features, it’s simply impossible not to fall in love with this gem.

Offering 5 bedrooms, 3 living areas & 2 bathrooms, finding space to host the extended family for the holidays won’t be an issue. The main living space opens onto a wide verandah & also on to the alfresco area that overlooks the stunning grounds & tennis court.
GARDEN
Outstanding is a suitable word to help describe the 2 acres of garden that has been lovingly maintained & added to under the guidance of a plan commissioned by the renowned landscape architect Michael Bligh. The garden is a wonderful mix of mature trees (some over 80 years old) including a magnificent Silver Elm, open lawn areas & Edna Walling style perennial beds that feature a vast variety of beautiful flowering plants. A small orchard & vegetable patches complete the package.
INFRASTRUCTURE / FENCING
Infrastructure has been maintained in excellent condition. Steel sheep/cattle yards with loading ramp & crush. Open bay machinery/hay shed & 20 tonne grain silo.
All boundary & internal fences are of steel construction with 2 barbs, plain wires & hinge joint.
PASTURES
The land is easily accessed & nestled in the beautiful Memundie Creek valley, which provides shelter & productive granite loam soils. The highly improved pastures have a long fertilizer history & are subdivided into 6 paddocks for ease of management. The property is currently operating as an Angus breeding enterprise but would be most suitable for other farming endeavors inc. sheep or alpacas.
WATER
One of the real assets of this property is water security, with five dams and a sub-artesian bore.
