It is without doubt a rare opportunity to acquire a property that is already set to a high standard and with little to do that will enhance the product. This is one such property.
Set in the fertile and picturesque surroundings of the Lower Wonga District, about 30 minutes west of Gympie, and with two road frontage is the former Bull Depot of the highly acclaimed Antigua Senepol Stud aggregation.
Consisting of 143 acres of the best chocolate loam soils with plenty of pasture improvement, and already fenced into 12 paddocks with a laneway system for ease of handling. The general fencing has been electrified as have the grass feeding pens designed for the show stock.
The extensive cattle handling facilities are designed with safety in mind. There are 'human only' areas and multiple drafting options off the undercover and concreted vet crush, a separate weigh station and loading ramp with multiple holding pens. The entire complex is constructed from bull rail and wire rope.
Water to the property is from 5 dams and a very good system of troughs via a header tank at the yards that is filled from the high volume bore and reticulated back to each paddock. This bore is also currently used for irrigating up to 90 acres, through 2 inch mains and a k-line system, and is only restricted by the size of the electric pump able to be utilised. About 15 acres is currently used for quality Rhodes Grass hay production.
The homestead is circa 1901 and was relocated to its present position in the early 1990's. This very well kept Queenslander consists of 4 bedrooms, main with WIR, extra large lounge, separate dining room, sitting room, functional kitchen, with a partially closed verandah on two sides. This is all set in well kept gardens and is adjacent the (approx.) 30m x 18m drive through shed which is in three defined sections of workshop, hay storage and machinery space. A separate office nearby will remain to keep the books in order.
Whist the property has predominately been used for cattle, the setup lends itself to horse breeding and training.
