Postcard Property On Basalt Soils
Situated at the base of Christmas Hills at Deloraine on the Bass Highway, with views from the Great Western Tiers to Mount Roland, this is both a dramatically beautiful and also productive property.
The majority of property contains the rich red basalt soils that Deloraine is famous for. While is has traditionally been used as a fattening and finishing property, there is a bore that produces 0.5 megalitre per day into a large storage dam that could be used to transform the property to irrigated cropping. An underground main is already in place through some of the property with hydrants ready to tap in to.
The major improvements are in a beautiful park-like setting surrounded by old European and native trees. There is a sound set of sheep/cattle yards with loading ramp, a large machinery shed/lock up work shop and the remains of the original historic cottage. There is also a 3 bedroom cottage that has recently had a bathroom and kitchen revamp. It is estimated the cottage could rent for in excess of $200 per week.
The key to profitable farming is sound soils. If you can find one that also has irrigation water, is well located, has well maintained fences and infrastructure and provides spectacular vistas of the surrounding area then you shouldn’t miss the opportunity to purchase it.
