This beautiful 285.2 Hectare property has water, views and extraordinarily fertile soils. This unique property offers you an array of lifestyle options due to the diversity of landscapes and close proximity to major towns and beaches. The Dorrigo region is arguably some of the best grazing country in Australia and the world. This property is certainly no exception. You won't have to look very far to realise how fertile the soil is in this part of the world. The thick green pastures with clover up to your knees is a pretty good give away and this is also thanks to the annual rainfall we are spoilt with each year. There are nine stock dams scattered around the property and 4 spring fed permanent creeks, you will have no shortage of water. There are plenty of breathtaking house sites to build your dream home on. However, the existing home is certainly no stranger to style. It's a charming country residence that has been restored and renovated with care and strong consideration ready for you to move in and enjoy straight away. The home has three buildings joined by verandahs. The main building houses the living area and the guest quarters with a lovely cosy formal lounge area and library separated by dividing doors and a slow combustion stove to keep you warm through the cooler months. Very practical modern central kitchen and a great light filled dining room opens out to a sunny verandah. The second building consists of four generous bedrooms, laundry and a bathroom with both bath and shower facilities. The two buildings are separated by a large deck, that flows through to the most outstanding outdoor entertaining pavilion. You will spend many mornings and evenings here and it's constructed from hard wood timber that has been sourced and milled on the property. The gardens that surround this home have been a work in progress over the years and what you get are lovely advanced specimens like maples for shade in summer to enjoy reading books under, advanced fruit tree orchard and the soil structure has been added to and added to so you have great soil with plants producing colour all year round. Through the garden there is an inspiring art studio to take care of your creative side. Now there are sheds and then there is this shed. It's a beauty, 30m by 16m with concrete floor. It was once a fruit sorting and storage shed, now there's room for all your toys, tools and machinery with room left over, hot water and three phase power a definite bonus. Bostobrick is located within an hour's drive to everything you will need, including Coffs Harbour Airport. However Dorrigo has a lot to offer and it is only 15 minutes away. The property is currently being agisted so there is also scope for improvement to the pastures and the rest of the property to make it shine even more. The property has 45Ha of forestry plantation now aged at 14 yrs old, which is free on title, and has the capacity to yield income both from thinning, and at harvest in 20 yrs time. The property includes a valid fish farm licence and has 100Ha of valuable timber reserves, which at the last 15 yr rotation (2yrs ago) yielded a gross $300,000 dollars, (as against $90,000 17 yrs ago). We also have the neighbouring 107 Ha property for sale and together they make up 392 Ha in total for $3.5m. There is three phase power to both properties, and both farms together have a current irrigation licence, and a capacity for intensification not open to dry land farmers, plus an irrigation dam.
