This eye-catching property 102 acres is truly a gem in the crown. Located in Collins Creek, a very short 12.3km to Kyogle, you will instantly fall in love with the overall features of this unique property.
The locally constructed Brosnan home is beautifully finished and maintained with ironbark timber floors, cedar French doors that open on to a large verandah which wraps around three sides of the house. The three spacious bedrooms all contain built-in wardrobes and ceiling fans, with an ensuite in the master bedroom.
The main entrance of the house leads into the sitting room which provides a space of solitude. This leads into a large open living area and features a recently modernised kitchen complete with new cooking appliances to host the most amazing dinner parties on the adjoining entertaining area.
Split system air-conditioning is located in the kitchen/dining /living area at one end of the house with another system in the second bedroom at the other end of the house. For heating in the cooler months, a wood heater stands in the main living area, allowing plenty of circulation through to the rest of the home to make it warm and cosy. A 1.5Kva solar panel system contributes to the sustainability of the home in terms of energy use.
Other features includes a separate study and laundry that contains a shower that is farm functional with outside access to the toilet as well. A large carport located at the rear of the house ensures you never get wet or hot when arriving or departing from the premises with shopping, the large open area comfortably houses two 4WDs.
The 2.5 acre gardens surrounding the house are bustling with birds, enjoying the abundant nectars of the flowering plants creating a personalised botanical garden. Sitting on the verandah from the front of the house facing north east, it's hard not to be drawn to the panoramic views of Border Ranges National Park. If you then change seats and look to the west you are swept away by the beauty of another stunning ridgeline known as the Helmet'. The property is really nestled by nature and abundant in richness.
This fertile property has approx. 800m frontage to Fawcett's Creek with a 3 mega litre irrigation licence to allow for cropping of pastures. The carrying capacity is estimated between 40-60 breeders, subject to seasonal conditions and feeding regimes.
There are 11 paddocks, excluding the irrigation and hay baling paddocks. This allows for great rotational grazing and production of winter rye and hay for baling, and storage in the large hay shed.
In addition to the irrigation water licence from the creek, there is also a bore located near the house which provides outdoor watering for stock troughs, gardening and toilets. A spring fed dam also contributes to supply of fresh water to cattle troughs.
The old dairy has a separate power meter, which supplies the electric fencing network established around the internal and boundary paddocks. There are a good set of timber yards, with a long race and metal crush that adjoins the dairy, with off the road, all weather loading access.
Best of all, there is a shed for every purpose, including a:
-Small colour bond 6 x6m, 2 bay machinery shed near the house for small plant and equipment.
-Second steel/metal 10m x6m, 3 bay machinery shed (with concrete floor) houses the tractor and implements.
-Hay shed 10m x 8m and high roof with a total storage capacity of approx. 90 round bales.
-Not to forget the old piggery and dairy storage areas.
When you thought there could not be any more features of this property, there are also two semi-detached original buildings in close proximity to the house that have been used for additional accommodation and storage. They would perfectly lend themselves to some renovation for a teenagers retreat or Air B and B accommodation.
With the convenience of the local Collins Creek Primary School just down the road, or additional primary schools and secondary schools in Kyogle, this property suits either the young or growing family. And unlike some other rural areas just out of town, this property has full mobile phone service.
Close to all nearby regional and city centres, with Murwillumbah a short 77km drive, Brisbane 140km and Ballina/Byron airport75 km (1 hours).
Viewing this property is an absolute must, you will definitely not be disappointed.
