440 GORDON GLEN ROAD BOWEN
MIXED FARMING/GRAZING AT ITS BEST
Ideally situated just off the Bruce Highway, this property is approx. 32km to Bowen's rich horticultural area, 30km to Proserpine with access to world renowned Airlie Beach and rich sugar cane growing area with local sugar mill.
This 804 acre (approx) property is one of the few mixed farming/grazing properties in the shire with the added benefit of both a deco and blue metal pit. The property has abundant water supply serviced by 4 dams and a bore, all interconnected plus Eden Lassie Creek and access to town water with Bowen pipe line passing through the paddocks. It has in excess of 1000 megalitres of water storage.
The 120 acre (approx) cultivation ranges from light tee trees soil to heavy black alluvial country. Great mix as if it rains the light country dries out quickly. The grazing country is typical coastal eucalypt soil with some ridges and good creek and natural flats. It is grassed with natural grasses including summer grass and Indian couch with introduced legumes such as seca, verano with some callide Rhodes. The property has been successfully farmed for years and has grown melons, squash, eggplant and other varieties of horticultural produce.
It has a 3 bedroom hi-set home with under being used for entertaining, a large steel framed packing shed with all the plant needed to grade and sort, wash and pack any produce. Off the shed is a smoko room, office, toilets and ample cold room storage. It has a 50kva generator to run the shed in an emergency. There is a good set of steel cattle yards with plunge dip and drafting pound with loading ramp. The property is fenced into 8 paddocks with all fencing well maintained.
The asking price is $2.45 million - in comparison with river country in the Bowen area is well worth an inspection.
