Huge potential to establish a serious horse property
This rural property is set adjoining the Angas River and within easy reach of Strathalbyn township and has huge potential for establishing a horse exercise arena and associated paddocks and shedding (STCC), is perfect for the children’s pony, a couple of calves, lambs, or an alpaca or two.
There is plenty of space for an Olympic size arena with stables and shedding on the flat land which boasts rich alluvial soils deposited over thousands of years to make the perfect habitat for horses. Surrounding roads contribute to an attractive and safe riding environment.
You may have all been waiting for this property to come onto the market, and the time has now arrived. The property is located on 3.43 hectares (8.4 acres) of beautiful fertile flat farming land situated on the banks of the Angas River.
Ownership has been in the current family since 1959 – great testament to the area and the quality of the farm which was originally named “Brooklands”. The house is one of the first homes built in the area in 1858 and is in good, sound condition.
The home is rendered limestone construction with some rendered brick, 3.3 metre/11’ ceilings, large verandah on three sides, near new colourbond roof and gutters, and a new meter box for the power. Steps leading to the large dry cellar have the traditional surrounding balustrade for safety.
The home has a traditional farm kitchen/dining room with a wood stove (Metters style in working order), good kitchen cupboards and an electric stove, the large lounge has a fireplace and a gas heater connection, an ante room has the landline phone connection and an in-ceiling loft for storage; and all four bedrooms are particularly generous in size.
Concessions to the modern era include power, mains water, poly rainwater tanks, telephone, wireless NBN and new septic system, have all been added without taking away any of the charm of yesteryear.
The area used for cropping is fertile arable flat farming land, particularly suitable for a horse enterprise, hay, cereal crops or other livestock. Sundry shedding includes the garden shed, greenhouse, original stone barn, and several smaller poultry sheds.
Schools for Reception to year 12 are easily accessed in Strathalbyn. This property is suitable for all farming pursuits and properties this close to the township on acreage are as rare as hens teeth. Do not delay, call for an inspection now.
