Rarely does such prime riverfront country of this calibre and scale come onto the market.
Originally settled in 1865 by Alexander McPherson, this 64 ha (158 acre) property offers unlimited opportunities for those seeking to continue grazing cattle, recommence cropping or as with many other lower Richmond River properties be converted for macadamia growing purposes.
There may also be the opportunity to subdivide the residence and associated 10ha of riverfront country to provide the ultimate lifestyle property while the remaining 54ha could potentially be eligible for a separate building entitlement (subject to council approval).
Property has over 800 metres of deep water frontage to the high side of the Richmond River from which you can launch your boat. Subdivided into approx. 8 paddocks, all with water and good shade, the property comprises a mixture of improved and native species that will fatten cattle all year round. Currently carrying 100 trade steers, property has also been previously used for breeding purposes and would be ideal for stud cattle purposes.
Fencing is generally in good condition and grazing country is free of any major weed infestation due to current good management practices.
The feature of the property however is the original “Gairloch” homestead which sits in an elevated position to capture the cool summer afternoon river breezes. Commanding, uninterrupted views of the ever changing river can be enjoyed from most rooms. The residence has been freshly painted externally so all the hard work has been done
The residence retains many period features including teak V Joint walls, high ceilings, beautiful wide pine flooring, fret work, bay windows and french doors opening onto the wide covered wraparound verandah.
Also included on the property is a 60 x 30ft machinery shed with concrete floor, a well maintained former dairy and a set of metal cattle yards with headlock and loading ramp.
All this yet located only 17kms from Evans Head beaches, 34 kms to Lismore, 43kms to Casino saleyards & abattoir and 48 kms to Ballina.
