TAS Country : August 26th 2010
Friday, August 27, 2010 Tasmanian Country 27 Rural property Land offers choice of farming or building THIS 45ha parcel of land right on the edge of town comprises two titles and represents an ideal op- portunity to establish an operational farm enterp- rise. The land capability surveys for this parcel designate it capability 3, 4and5. Council recently ap- proved it for building, which is current for two years and would be tran- sferrable. The property is cur- rently sown down to pas- ture grass species. There are numerous bores on the surrounding properties, which would indicate available groun- dwater for domestic and most likely agricultural requirements. Until recently this property was part of an operational dairy farm and has good fertiliser and maintenance his- tory. It varies from flat to undulating and features boundary frontage to the early stage of the Don River. Also adjacent to this property is a three- bedroom renovated home on 0.6ha of land available for $269,000. Welcome to the new stone age THIS exceptional four- bedroom, three-storey home was built by a profes- sional stonemason from locally sourced sandstone. The sparkling kitchen has black granite benchtops, a large walk-in pantry, electric oven, gas cook top and double stainless-steel sink. There is a spacious open- plan dining/living area with picturesque colonial and bay windows and a freestanding wood-heater. The top storey is about four squares, making it perfect for an office, gym- nasium or sewing room. The home features top- quality carpet and drapes throughout. The property has estab- lished manicured lawns and gardens, and silver birch trees line the drive- way. The soil is extremely fertile in the undulating paddocks. There is electricity nearby, but the home is run on solar power and generators, and there is an ample supply of under- ground water. There is a double Colorbond garage and a 6m x 3m storage shed. There are breathtaking views over Ben Lomond, the Fingal Valley and ''Bare Rock'', the largest bluestone rockface in the southern hemisphere. The property is just an hour from Launceston Air- port, 15 minutes from a hospital and secondary school, and 25 minutes to the beautiful East Coast beaches. Fingal township is a thriving country com- munity, with a supermar- ket, primary school, three churches, a post office, a hotel and a police station. This truly is a unique property with great poten- tial for vineyards, growing olives or essential oils. WEST KENTISH Cables Rd Potential farm land Land area: 45ha $715,000 Sushames Real Estate.
