Lush productive farm so close to Brisbane
HERE at this incredible property called Middlemount, you’ll get 167ha of lush land yet it is only 60 minutes to Brisbane airport.
Marketing agents Ray White Rural Esk principal Wayne Jaenke and Ray White Rural Queensland agent Barry Quinn say this outstanding yet very affordable property offers a rural lifestyle rarely found so close to Brisbane.
“The quality pastures and especially the water that Middlemount offers is a walk in the park to any cattlemen,” the pair said.
“Middlemount, sited in the highly productive and renowned area of Sandy Creek, with lovely views of the nearby Conondale Ranges, is both one hour from the Brisbane Airport (non- stop door to door) and the beautiful beaches of the Sunshine Coast. Woodford is just 18 kilometres away, Kilcoy even less.
“Sealed roads get you to both of the property entrances. Because of the properties proximity to these major cites, important facilities (shopping, schools, medical including hospital and entertainment) are all within easy reach.”
Owners Jeff and Trish Poole, pictured above with their dog Milly. are downsizing to be near to family.
The Pooles relocated from their 40,000 acre property Lillianfells in the Longreach district to this smaller holding in the Woodford / Kilcoy district in 2006. The son Russell now runs the family’s cattle grazing operation.
Middlemount has consistently run in excess of 100 gertrudis / droughtmaster breeding cattle plus their progeny each year.
This is an ex-dairy cattle property with a perfect balance of cleared and well shaded country. More than half of Middlemount’s 161ha are a fine example of quality cleared undulating grazing country.
More than 20ha of this acreage is ideally suitable for other horticulture purposes. The balance is heavily grassed well shaded country and suitable for grazing cattle. These
sheltered areas are also very well suited for winter grazing. The paddocks were seeded with improved pasture in 2002. These grasses are now very well established and include Green Panic, Blue grass, Kikuyu, Wynn Cassia, other native grasses and Legumes. This is ideal breeding country.
Importantly the cattle farm has been destocked for the last seven months ready for sale. As a result, the farm currently has an abundant amount of feed.
The property has excellent water. Serviced by 14 dams (4 being spring fed), and a good bore with potable water.
Middlemount is referred to as “a no stress water property”.
The outstanding large main dam near the home is worth an inspection alone. As a result, Middlemount has an excellent carrying capacity for its size – consistently carrying more than 100 breeders plus progeny.
The comfortable family timber homestead has three bedrooms, study and two bathrooms. The long and wide covered front deck is just a stunning location for relaxing and family meals.
An additional outdoor entertaining area at the rear of the home, sited amongst the numerous established fruit trees, offers picturesque vistas over both the large main dam and farm and onto the unique peaks, spurs and striking escarpments of the surrounding Conondale Ranges.
The homestead area is surrounded by a wonderful combination of very mature trees, including a large stunning 80-year-old fig tree and numerous towering white gum trees, in addition to the large variety of colourful shrubs, rose gardens and many various varieties of mature fruit trees.
