OVER 100 years of cattle breeding, this 530 acre property was hand-picked as the prime piece of land, from what was part of the well renowned Newbold cattle station. Established infrastructure for cattle management, cropping flats and an extensive homestead are just some of the qualities of this prestigious Clarence River property.
The Lilydale Bridge which crosses the sparkling Clarence is effectively the entrance to your property as New Farm stretches upstream and downstream of the bridge.
The current owners have been here for 47 years and the property has been in the family name since 1916 which speaks volumes about the magnificent property on offer.
Some 530 acres consisting of about 165 acres of river flats, a further 65 acres of cleared paddocks and another 300 acres of timbered land (all split into 10 fenced paddocks) - it is estimated the property could comfortably carry 200 breeders across all seasons. Stock are watered via troughs fitted with float valves.
The fully functioning stockyards are quite extensive and were once used to manage a large stock of cattle. They are in good condition with the gates and drop pins still in working order. There is plenty of shade trees and water troughs throughout. In addition to the cattle yards are the the dairy and piggery.
The homestead is nothing short of huge at approx. 594sqm under roof. There are 7 bedrooms plus office spaces and multiple living areas inside and out. The homestead stretches across the ground floor, with the guest quarters located on the first floor. This home is created with the perfect balance of formal and casual living.
A three-bay barn-style shed is right next to the house with another larger shed just a few metres away across the lawn. There is an old tennis court on site which could be brought back to its former glory with a little TLC, but acts nicely in its present state as a mini soccer field. Beautifully landscaped gardens and neat manicured lawns make up the rest of the house paddock.
Of course there is mains power and approximately a 6kw solar system. Sewerage is via septic tank and drinking water is collected from the vast roofing into 4 x 5000 gallon rainwater tanks.
But over and above all of the improvements, the river is where the permanent beauty of this property lies. Fish, kayak, irrigate (with appropriate licences), or just relax and enjoy the biggest river on the East Coast of Australia.
