About this listing
Up for genuine sale, and located approximately twenty kilometres east of Benambra, is this magnificent parcel of Alpine Cattle Country, known as "Mac's Creek", at 2068 Limestone Road. A unique parcel of country, comprising of approximately 228 hectares or 565 acres, that is a mix of natural alpine bush, being predominantly white gum, peppermint and brown stringy, and the balance cleared native grazing land.
The property is securely fenced, with most of the fencing in a very good state of repair, and thus is divided into eleven paddocks, and serviced by eleven dams, with eight of those spring fed, and with Macs Creek winding through the property.
The main shedding infrastructure on the property is of an excellent standard, with the eye stopper being twenty-one metre by nine-meter lock up machinery shed, boasting a fantastic single bedroom self-contained unit with full kitchenette and ensuite, thoughtfully built into one end, and the balance of the shed being full concrete flooring to take machinery, with two roller doors, and all harnessed to a 24 volt 2 Kva solar system. Tank water to the unit is provided by a 6000gal poly tank with a further 5000gal tank solely dedicated to the CFA. Hot water is instant gas, being bottled gas, and the toilet is on a septic system.
Also, on the property is a solid steel hayshed of some eighteen by nine metres, enclosed on three walls with an approximate holding capacity of over two hundred round bales. Hay can be produced on the front 30 acres of the property, during good seasons, and can yield approximately 100 rolls. There are cattle yards, of approximate seventy head holding capacity, located centrally in the front half of the property, with some laneways connecting the closer paddocks.
Stocking rate has traditionally, and conservatively, been running at around 70 breeders with replacement heifers, being Autumn calving with October marking, and falling in line with weaner stock sent into the inaugural mountain cattle sales held annually after the long weekend in March.
Not for sale, but currently under an agricultural licence with the current vendor, is the addition, and approximately, a further 2800 acres of natural alpine bush for grazing cattle. This is noted in the vendor statement and must be understood that it does not form part of the freehold land that is for sale whatsoever. Upon agreed terms, in a contract of sale, this lease county may be transferable subject to the approval of the stakeholder.
This is a remarkable property in all aspects and not only on a commercial basis, but definitely on a lifestyle basis, and could be used for a multitude of recreational and income earning ventures. Incredibly rare, incredibly unique, and incredibly up for genuine sale!
