Located 20km North-West of Gloucester this property has been in the same family for over 100 years. It is accessed by tar-sealed road and enjoys a 2km frontage to the Bowman River as well as backing onto Copeland Tops State Conservation Area. The property comprises a solid 4 bedroom brick house that overlooks the river. There are verandahs on four sides (enclosed on the river end). The kitchen/ meals area has a traditional wood-fired stove. Other features of the house include formal dining and lounge rooms with air conditioning, a sewing room, an ensuite to the main bedroom and a solar hot water system. There are two river flat paddocks: The Old Piggery [4ha] and River Bend [3.3ha] = 18 acres in total, which could be sown down to fodder crops or silage.
In all, approximately 70% of the property is cleared grazing land, most of which is ridge country. The balance is steeper country, covered in timber and bush. The pastures comprise mostly native grasses and some kikuyu. In some areas the Bladey grass and bracken fern have a hold and will need treating. Aside from this, the ridges are generally free of rocks and could be slashed and mulched in many places allowing for pasture improvement potential over a large percentage of the cleared grazing land. The boundary fencing at the front of the property appears to be in generally good condition. The property is broken down into a few larger paddocks. The state of boundary fencing to the rear of the property is unknown at this time. In addition to the extensive frontage to the Bowman River, there 3 dams and a spring-fed creek.
Improvements include stockyards with Larford crush, a pump on river for the gardens and stock, numerous out buildings including the meat shed, butter shed, dog kennels, old dairy and three bay open shed. This is a property that needs some TLC but it is also loaded with opportunities and potential.
