SIMPLY THE BEST! RIVERFRONTAGE WITH FLOOD FREE RIDGE & QUALITY INFRASTRUCTURE
Livestock - Ulmarra NSW
Every once in a while a truly special property comes onto the market. One that ticks all the boxes; a nice homestead, established grounds, privacy, great shedding & infrastructure, fertile paddocks, deep water river frontage (to high water mark) AND flood-free land.
‘Quality’ is the word that I feel best describes this property.
And while that’s a pretty succinct description of the place, I will elaborate more, as there are so many features that make this property stand out from the rest.
Situated overlooking the mighty Clarence River, between the villages of Ulmarra and Cowper, on the North Coast of NSW, this property totals approximately 50 acres of some of the most productive riverbank country in our region.
Flooding is at the forefront of everyone’s minds at the moment, so let’s tackle that info now.
It is important to note that the photographs taken for this advertisement were taken less than two weeks after the last major flood peaked in the area.
The house and infrastructure sits on a high ridge, which runs across the width of the property, and is entirely flood-free. In the February/March major flood event, which locals are referring to as ‘the biggest one yet for Ulmarra’, this ridge proved to have a good 10 acres of flood-free land; and the home, sheds and yards remain high and dry.
The elegantly renovated homestead features a modern bathroom, and renovated kitchen complete with stone bench tops. Despite its contemporary conveniences, the old world charm is not lost, with snippets of yesteryear lovingly preserved; polished hardwood timber floorboards, original pressed metal ceilings, character-filled weatherboards, and the quintessential bullnose verandahs all hold pride of place.
The home is located in the centre of the property, away from any close neighbours, and sits amongst established grounds and low-maintenance gardens. The inground swimming pool is a real hit during the summer months, and verandahs on three sides of the home allow for the perfect cuppa spot in every season.
Located a hop, skip and a jump away from the home is the fully lined & air conditioned studio/office, with attached carport.
Next, you have the enormous 10x12m Colourbond lockable shed, complete with concrete floor, power and lights. There is a double carport attached to one side of this shed, and a drive-through bay, perfect for the horse float or caravan, on the other end.
Four stables and a wash bay are very practically located, and there is a machinery shed for additional implements, along with steel cattle yards with vet crush and loading ramp, which adjoin the sand arena. There are lights and powerpoints at the cattle yards and sand arena, and there’s also a great little fruit-bearing orchard.
Town water is connected and there is also a rainwater tank, with water reticulated to stock troughs in the paddocks, and also to the home.
This property has a very strong, annual fertiliser history, and this combined with the heavy alluvial soils makes for an absolute grass factory. Kikuyu, paspalum, clover and couch are the predominant pastures.
The property has been utilised as a cattle stud and horse property, and is fenced into 15 paddocks. Fencing across the entire property is in great condition. When the cattle just can’t keep up to the amount of feed, hay has been cut to be sold or stored.
Views from the homestead are ‘postcard perfect’ – fat cattle grazing on green grass with a glimmering river in the background.
Pop the tinny in and go for a fish, or choose the perfect picnic spot; there’s quite a few to choose from along the 700m of Clarence River frontage.
The school bus stops at the front gate and there’s a number of great schools within 15 minutes.
Whether you’re upsizing from in town, downsizing from a larger holding or retiring to the coast, looking for deep water frontage for your big boat, or simply wishing for a property where a wonderful lifestyle and high-production farming country go hand in hand, this one is a must to inspect.
