Enormous Potential & Amazing Views - 32.27ha
148 Fox Road, Gumeracha
Located at the end of a no through road and nestled against the backdrop of a stunning hills landscape this property might pique the interest of those looking for a project. Already equipped with a quaint weekender, the farm provides great bones for your future grand design currently living inside your imagination. Excellent infrastructure includes a 18mx9m shed with 3 phase, an old character besser dairy and extra shedding. Water is exceptional and the views to die for.
Whilst attractive, make no mistake, the weekender is a place to shelter in the short term as the owners cannot warrant it's structural integrity. Sited in a very picturesque part of the farm it overlooks a melodious frog pond that adds charm to this unique spot. Inside offers a functioning kitchen, bathroom & laundry plus a wood heated lounge/dine for those winter days when the weather just wont let you go outside.
The landscape here is a fascinating mixture of superbly usable hay cutting country combined with lush grazing land that rises up into a magnificent hilly portion at the rear of the block. Approximately 30% is scrubland which is in full recovery mode after a recent fire. Currently set up for horses there is 11 paddocks and a very picturesque tree lined creek.
Water is essential to any property and this one has it in spades. Fully equipped, the main irrigation bore comes with a 14 meg water licence to irrigate 3.9 ha of pasture. There is also a 2nd bore for the future house grounds which previous tests show at around 800ppm. Add another 353,500 litres of tank storage to complete a very sound water proposition.
Shedding is varied & useful. The most impressive one is 18m x 9m and features a fully painted two pack epoxy concrete floor. Equipped with high intensity lighting its an incredibly useful addition to the farm outbuildings. Whilst the power points are all single phase there is also 3 phase to the fuse box. Other shedding includes a workshop/storage shed, farm/vehicle shed + the character filled old besser dairy. It's a farm with a wide variety of useable infrastructure ready for immediate use.
Walking over the site is essential to gain a real understanding of what's on offer here. It's a truly impressive location with enormous potential and amazing views. Bring your vision and farming grit to transform this superb location from a rough diamond to a polished gem.
