Situated on School Rd, Palmers Island, with tar road frontage, this well presented 125 acres of prime river country offers the very best in rural lifestyle, together with close access to the famous beaches of Yamba and just 2 minutes from the boat ramp to the Clarence River.
Capable of carrying 50 cows and calves with some fodder conservation, it is divided into 5 well fenced paddocks with trough or dam water to each, and laneway access to a substantial set of cattle yards with crush and loading ramp. There has been some pasture improvement with good clover growth in most paddocks. The property is connected to power and town water.
The country does flood when the Clarence overflows, but only for short time span (3-5 days) during heavy inundation. There is flood relief for stock and all the buildings bar one shed are completely free of water. Stock can return quickly to pasture as the floods here are “clean” so there is little mud deposit.
Improvements on the property are of exceptional quality, the most notable being the homestead, of colonial design and good condition after much renovation. Single storey, expansive in size and North- facing, the attractive covered verandahs allow great light and ambience through the building.
Consisting of 5 double bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, semi-formal lounge area with fireplace, air-conditioning, fans and views over the country. Dining area adjoins kitchen, with another wood fired heater, fans etc. Bedrooms have fans, carpeted, and built-in robes in 3 – the main bedroom has an ensuite, walk-in robe, and opens on to a private verandah facing North. There is a well- appointed, fully self- contained flat, with kitchen, bathroom and bedroom adjoining the main verandah, for those guests you would like to keep away from!
The kitchen area with concertina windows, gas benchtop stove, electric wall oven, dishwasher and lots of bench space, leads on to another large covered and screened verandah with wonderful views over the garden set with mature trees. An internal laundry and extensive office, plus 2 car garage with “E” door completes the under roof area.
Externally, there is a large 4-5 bay fully enclosed steel shed with lined roof, electrified and concrete floor, another steel framed 3 bay shed with extra- large bays, and alongside that another steel framed 2 bay shed – all sheds have good accessibility from an all-weather road surface.
Entry to this impressive property is via a tree-lined, all-weather, raised road with a huge dam between the road and the homestead entry.
To find a more pleasant rural retreat would be difficult, and being so close to Yamba is another added attraction. Owners are open to offers.
