FRONTING the sealed Boyup Brook-Arthur River Road, Pretend Park is 32 kilometres north east of Boyup Brook in Dinninup.
Originally timbered with redgum, flooded gum, wandoo and jarrah, this property has a versatile mix of red loams through to gravelly duplex sandy loams.
The topography is typical of this 600 millimetres a year rainfall area, ranging from undulating well-drained country through to green grazing flats and freshwater soaks that run down to the Blackwood River frontage on the western boundary.
Consisting of three locations, the farm is divided into four main paddocks and serviced by a practical laneway system that links all of the main paddocks to the holding paddocks and near new steel cattle yards with a cattle crush and loading ramp.
All the fencing has been recently renewed with good quality seven-line Ringlock and barb wire on galvanised steel and wooden fence posts.
Livestock water is very reliable and supplied through five earth dams and two freshwater soaks that could be further enlarged to increase capacity if needed.
Other farm improvements include a 24 metre x 9m x 4m steel frame and zincalume general purpose machinery shed with lock-up bay and rainwater tank and a cement fertiliser pad.
Pretend Park is unique in the way that the owner over the past five years has started from scratch with a bare parcel of land and installed all new infrastructure including fences, cattle yards and a general purpose shed.
The property can be easily run from an owner living at another locality.
Pastures have been well fertilised and a reliable stock water supply has been developed to enable a problem-free ‘run off’ style small farming operation with oats sown for grain and hay production.
