321 IRON MINE RD, CROOKWELL
321 IRON MINE RD
Quality farm in blue ribbon area
High yielding basalt soils, improved pastures, high rainfall, an astonishing supply of water and rolling hills with scattered yellow box and small areas of remnant timber for shelter make this 184 acre farm surely one of the most productive and picturesque in the entire region.
Current carrying capacity averages one cow and calf per hectare.
Topography is undulating with some steeper, hilly sections. The mostly easterly aspect affords shelter from prevailing winds and early morning thaw of frosts.
Access and movement around the property is easily managed.
Improved pastures include clovers and rye, phalaris and cocksfoot. The property has a strong fertiliser history plus constant, diligent weed management.
Outstanding water security is perhaps the most outstanding feature of Dandaraga. At an altitude of 960 metres at its highest point, rainfall averages a high 863 mm (34") /annum. There are 9 dams, some spring fed. The Crookwell River forms one boundary. Mostly spring fed, it hasn't stopped flowing in at least 20 years. Additionally and importantly, there are spring-fed soaks dotted over an extensive portion of the property.
Improvements are impressive:
An attractive, country-style, brick-veneer, four bedroom home is positioned to be sheltered from prevailing winds and to maximise the beautiful northerly vista. Spacious living and dining plus a study off the master bedroom, which includes walk-through robe and en-suite. All bedrooms have built-in wardrobes. The main bathroom has both bath and shower. The toilet is separate, as is the laundry. The home has high ceilings and is well insulated, with cosy slow combustion heating. Wide, full-length verandahs overlook the garden containing beautiful mature trees and plenty of lawn space.
LEP zoning allows for the construction of a secondary dwelling.
Bore and pump and three 22,500 litre tanks for rainwater storage.
A heavy-duty construction, 18X9 sq m machinery shed has workshop area and mezzanine storage.
Strong, well-built stock yards, shearing shed currently used for machinery and hay and a 10-tonne silo.
This is a real, working farm, in fabulous order, with the additional lifestyle benefits of gloriously attractive countryside, stunning views, river (with trout!) on one boundary and all just 6 kms from Crookwell's shops, cafes and services.
