LAND: Productive and appealing is this 61.7 acre property. Over the years the owners have successfully carried cattle. The land is a mixture of fertile rolling country to areas of bush land. Granite stone and established trees dress the landscape along with beautiful outlooks to the surrounding ranges and district. The bush section of the property is separated by the deep gorge/creek running through.
The pasture has not been treated with super phosphate or lime. So in the autumn break there are some excellent field mushrooms. There is a small seasonal dam with excellent tasting yabbies!.
Go for long walks observing the abundant bird / wildlife moving across the land. Several formed tracks in and around the property. Intriguing rock formations including large "balancing rock"!
The Vineyard requires pruning and is planted in three rows being watered via a drip system. Grapes varieties have produced sauvignon blanc and chardonnay.
WATER: The house is supplied via rainwater storage tanks (capacity18,000 litres). Each tank has a first flush diverter so that the water is safe to drink.
2 dams in total on the property. Located on the far south side of the property is the 2 meg. dam. This dam is piped to a storage tank then supplied to various stock troughs, chicken shed, vineyard and house garden. There is a 1 hectare irrigation licence.
Additional water supply comes from a shared pipeline with a 2 meg. water right (annual fee required) which feeds the storage tanks, trough and the vegetable garden. The Ramages Creek runs into the southern section of the property. There is a riparian right on the un-named east/west creek and a short section of Ramages Creek is free water. The current owners have never seen the necessity to avail themselves of this right.
