- Mixed Farming
- 4 bed
- 3 bath
- Land is 16 hectare
Rarely does a farm of 16 ha/40 acres become available in this tightly held area of Wamuran. This valuable mixed farming enterprise can be considered ‘drought proof’ due to its licensed dam, creek and water holes.
As a lifestyle property, it has excellent potential to run your own business. If this isn’t your intention, then there is significant income that can be generated by leasing out the “tunnels” and the 4ha irrigated back paddock. This can be accomplished without interfering with your life in the homestead.
With easy access to Brisbane, this is a perfect rural farmstead for up-sizers, moving from the suburbs, to fulfil their dream of owning a cattle, horse or agriculture enterprise. Equally, this property is ideal for those downsizing from large holdings, to acclimatise to living on a smaller farm while being close to all the suburban amenities. Another benefit is the proximity to the recently upgraded Caboolture Hospital.
The double storey home has 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a study/office. There is easy access to the upstairs by a walkway from the double carport.
Upstairs has the master bedroom with W.I.R. and bathroom. On this level is a second bathroom, an office or study, a modern kitchen, dining room, lounge and an expansive deck area for BBQs. There are 3 air-conditioners.
Downstairs is fully self-contained, with 3 bedrooms, a kitchenette, bathroom and dining lounge area. Both levels have ceiling fans. The house water is from 75,000 L rainwater tanks. The septic system is an Envirocycle system.
Shed 1: 20 x 9 m lockable shed with a 20 x 9 m lean-to with open ends. This shed has 3-phase power.
Shed 2: 12 x 7.5 m lockable shed with a cold room.
There is a 5 kW solar system on the roof of the shed.
Container: Next to the entrance driveway is a 40 ft. container that houses fertiliser tanks and a computer system for irrigation of the 17 growing tunnels which are in perfect repair.
The dragon fruit orchard, with 430 plants; the fig trees, and passion fruit vines are watered by a pressure pump next to the container.
Outside of the container are 2 water tanks (22,700 L and 3,785 L) that are topped up from a pressure pump at the dam.
The front of the property has the homestead, sheds, container, orchards and 17 growing tunnels. There is abundant water on the property, with a 10 ha irrigation license from its dam, creek, and water holes.
There is a gravel farm road that crosses over the dam wall to the laser-levelled paddocks at the back of the property. This 4 ha area has its own irrigation system with hydrants in place. The main irrigation pump has a 4-inch outlet which has a Southern Cross Pump powered by the power take-off of a tractor.
The entire 40 acres are fenced into 6 paddocks, plus cattle yards, holding paddocks and laneways for cattle.
Future Expansion of the Farm
Whatever enterprise the purchaser desires, there is an enormous amount of water stored in the dams for irrigation. Water is the most valuable farm asset.
As the property is zoned as Emerging Community, in the future, it will be developed as part of the Caboolture West Development Area. Enjoy country life for the next 20-30 years, then capitalise on the future residential potential.
According to the vendor, a second dwelling can be built on the property.
