    • House on 34 Acres in the Foothills of Mount Canobolas

      Property ID 1557779

      LOCATED: approx 12 km from the major regional centre of Orange and nestled in the scenic Towac Valley with pristine national park along one boundary and the clear waters of Molong creek forming another boundary. Good sealed road all the way into Orange.

      SETTING: Situated in the upper end of the scenic Towac valley at 1000m altitude with rich volcanic basalt soils that have been so prized by horticulturalists, this 34 acre block has been a productive orchard in the past. Along one boundary, the bushland forms part of the large Mount Canobolas State Conservation Area, being just minutes from the highest point in the area, Mt Canobolas. The crystal clear waters of Molong Creek, rising in the same conservation area, form another boundary, before forming Lake Canobolas, a popular recreational spot approx. 4 km further downstream. The scenic Towac valley consists of a mixture of orchards, vineyards and recreational blocks.

      COUNTRY: the land starts off level along the creek, rising up the hill to where it meets the bushland. The property was a productive orchard for many years and underground water lines are still in place. The land is mostly cleared with trees along the creek and a belt of original timber kept in place. The rich basalt soils would suit virtually any horticulture/viticulture/agricultural use.

      IMPROVEMENTS: Improvements include a sound 3 bedroom brick house set in an established garden; separate double garage with roller doors, concrete floor and power; 2 solid all-steel open front sheds being 12m & 18m long. The house, with one owner for approx 60 years presents in excellent condition. The sheds have been constructed to heavy duty specifications to withstand build-ups of snow, falls of which are not uncommon in winter.

      AREA: 13.74 hectares (approx 34 acres)

      WATER: The immediate area enjoys the highest annual rainfall in the whole area, so water should not be a problem. Housewater is on rain water collected off the sheds and house. There is a very good bore (2,000 gals per hour) which has a 6 mgl irrigation license. As well as the creek along one boundary, there is a good dam that can gravity feed the whole property.

      SERVICES: Mains power, land line, mobile service, wireless broadband, sealed road frontage.
      AUCTION: to be offered for sale by public auction date to be advised.

      COMMENTS: This attractive small acreage has been held in the same family for 60 years. The productive country and ample water would suit agriculture/horticulture/viticulture or maybe the tranquil valley, bush surrounds and native birds and wildlife will win out from buyers looking for a recreational acreage. Either way, the location and proximity to town are strong features and worthy of inspection. Vendors are very keen to wind up the estate and this property will be sold.
