KNOWN as The Farm, this is one of the region's highest quality rural properties.
It is in a very reliable rainfall region, 21 kilometres north of Albany, just off Albany Highway on Hazzard Road.
It is close to the Albany Regional Airport and essential services at Albany City.
The property comprises 181 hectares, with an excellent mix of higher country running down to the King River flats.
About 160ha of the property is cleared, with the balance being shade and shelter along the King River.
The property has a good mix of soil types, from sands over ironstone over clays, river loams, brown clays and a small area of sand.
The owners have put a great amount of work into the property over the past 11 years, with attention given to pasture renovation, water supplies, fencing and improvements.
Original vegetation was a mixture of jarrah, redgum, tea-tree and paperbark.
Pasture renovation over the years has included seeding ryes and mixed clovers over most of the property, plus strawberry clover on the river country.
With this process the owners have increased the stocking rate on the property to a good productive and profitable smaller farming unit.
Rainfall for the region is about 800 millimetres in most years, with the property classed as very well-watered from one good bore which is suitable for domestic and stock purposes, two good dams and one soak, as well as the King River.
The windmill on the bore pumps up to two water tanks by the shearing shed, which then feeds back to eight troughs to service the stock.
The property also has a small lake/soak area that is also equipped with a pump to provide water if required.
Fencing is in very good condition with new fencing underway on the western boundary, constructed of a mix of plain wire electric and Ringlock on steel, galvanised and pine posts.
A central laneway system connects most of the paddocks back to a good set of steel cattle yards with a crush and loading race.
The property has good improvements that include a two-stand raised board shearing shed.
A near new 15 metre x 12 m x 5m hay shed is at the cattle yards.
The property is leased, which expires on January 31, 2020.
Settlement can take place prior to this if required.
