TAS Country : January 3rd 2013
Friday, January 4, 2013 Tasmanian Country 15 Rural property No shortage of water GLENFIELD is a rare find, being a 211ha farm just 25 minutes from the Hobart CBD. With industrial zoned land close to the new Brighton railway hub and potential for subdivision (STCA and zoning) in the future due to proximity to substantial houses at Honeywood and Brighton, this could be a great invest- ment. With 200Ml of farm water storage and access to more treated waste water than the farm uses, this versatile property is also in a perfect location next to saleyards for fattening stock. The dam is filled from run-off but water can also be pumped from the Jordan River which Glen- field straddles. The nutrients from the waste water help minimise fertiliser use on grass and poppies. Cherries are grown suc- cessfully nearby and leafy vegetables such as lettuces are suited to the area. Agent Chris Johnston says it would be excellent for market gardening or labour intensive agricul- ture with labour so close. The farm has recently pro- duced prime lambs, peas, cereal crops and poppies. Crops are watered by three centre pivots, cover- ing four sites, amounting to 80ha. The irrigation equip- ment is well installed and having the waste water dams located above most of the property, expensive electricity costs are mini- mised. There is potential for another 50ha of irrigated ground under two pivots. The farm has three large galvanised sheds. One is a machinery and workshop, the second is a hay shed and the third a three-stand shearing shed. There is also a large four- bedroom brick home- stead with an established garden. COVE HILL 250 Cove Hill Rd Versatile property with excess water and four-bedroom house Land area: 211ha Expressions of interest close January 10 Elders Real Estate. Refer Chris Johnston 0408 355 556 Centre of opportunity THE Mount Arthur Centre at Underwood is situated on a very attractive 4.07ha block with a permanent creek and nature walks. The building is in good condition and features a vertical board construc- tion and open-plan design. The large timber kitchen is the hub of the building, with the bedrooms, bath- rooms and massive lounge or community room area (with heated floor) adjac- ent. There is additional space in a mezzanine above the kitchen area (no stairs at this stage). The land is a mixture of native bush and walks with lawn areas closer to the buildings. A quaint cabin captures valley views and there's a workshop and garden shed. Water to the 110,000l tank is fed from a reliable creek which meanders through the property. A large bitumen car park and tennis court fur- ther add to the facilities. Agent Martin O'Byrne says the versatile property could continue as a com- munity centre or it would make a fantastic family home on a very desirable piece of land.
