TAS Country : November 18th 2010
Friday, November 19, 2010 Tasmanian Country 27 Rural property Lush waterfront pasture ripe for picking THIS extremely productive property offers lush riverfront pasture and a magnificent lifestyle. Set along the banks of the Mersey River at Merseylea is this 6.87ha farm on three titles. In addition a fourth title which is a long-term crown lease (4.8ha) is at- tached to the property giving a total farming area of about 11.73ha. This property has been utilised for crops, and currently incorporates mix- ed farming with sheep, store cattle and about 2ha of lucerne sown for fodder production. The property averages about 25 store cattle, 40 ewes and lambs, in addition to cutting all its own fodder. The very comfortable and spacious three-bedroom brick residence features an open-plan kitchen (with two pantry areas), dining and living areas. A split-level incorporates a rumpus room or office, plus laundry facilities. The bathroom has a separate shower and bath, and separate second toilet. Neat well-established gardens, fences and enclosures enhance the home. The gardens and orchards feature apple, apricot, peach, nectarine, cherry, walnut and lemon trees, as well as raspberry and strawberry beds. House water comes from two tanks totalling 6250 gallons. The property is split into 11 pad- docks, all with stock watering facilities. There are two pump stations operated from three-phase powered facilities supplying irrigation, garden and stock water. Higher capacity irrigation equip- ment is available as part of the walk-in walk-out package. The property holds a 16ML irrigation license. Outbuildings include a 12x8m ce- ment construction garage/machinery shed with 4x2.8m loft, an 8x4m lock-up zincalume garage, a three-bay 12x6m machinery skillion and shearing shed area. There are also four enclosed dog yards and two hay barns. Stockyards come with an adjustable height loading ramp and incorporate four small holding yards/paddocks (in addition to the other paddocks). The fences are a combination of mesh and electric, with a central laneway to the farthest paddocks, and fixed gates hung at all paddock en- trances. This is an ideal property to commute within northern Tasmania --- it is 12 minutes to Sheffield, 25 minutes to Devonport, and about 50 to Launceston airport.
