Productive acreage, mixed farming100-148 Holmes Road, Roland
The property boasts a number of choice potential building sites that stand out with expansive views of Mount Roland, over the property itself and rural surrounds (STCA). The property has historically been utilised as an extension to the vendors home farming operation, and has always been a productive part of the farm operation, while recognised for its potential in its own right. It offers great potential and lifestyle opportunities.
This property is blessed with numerous quality springs feeding permanent creeks, two dams with a combined irrigation licence of 6 Megalitres and numerous small dams with for stock water. The irrigation has been utilised mainly for the production of Fresh Market potatoes, but also swedes and turnips are often grown, as well as oat wheat and barley cereal crops. Like most of this area the quality of water available is pristine quality and even in the driest of years is a reliable permanent flow and supply. The remainder of the property is utilised for grazing of beef cattle and sheep in conjunction with the vendors home farming property. The property has established stock yards for cattle movements and a spacious three bay barn for use for fodder storage and machinery.
The 20 hectares was planted to Eucalypts in a lease agreement in 2007 and is now solely owned by the vendors. The 20 hectares planted to Eucalypts demonstrates very healthy growth and is projected to be due for harvest between 2022 and 2025 at between 15 to 18 years of age. In fact at current timber values the financial return from harvesting the trees in the next 5 to 6 years could potentially more than cover of the cost of building a new home (depending on size and construction) or a significant percentage of the purchase price of the property.
The property boasts a number of potential building sites, that stand out with expansive views of Mount Roland, over the property itself and surrounds. (STCA - subject to planning & council approval). Depending of the attributes a new owner is looking for in a home site, whether it be to maximise the views or proximity to facilities and central to the property you would be spoilt for choice. From a lifestyle perspective it is ideal being only 7 or 8 minutes from Sheffield and 30 to 35 minutes approximately from Devonport, Latrobe, Deloraine or Ulverstone for schools, shopping, medical, work and recreational options. Nearby are also the recreation and lifestyle opportunities with Lake Barrington, and many riding trails run through and past the property often used for endurance events.
The property is also ideal as an extension to an existing farming operation as a run off block for spelling cattle, and fodder production. It is ideal as a wintering block with the natural shelter provided by its aspect and slopes as well as the timber resources on the property in fact the vendor has often commented that the property is a full overcoat warmer than the home farm due to its aspect and shelter. It is well drained and as mentioned has plentiful water resources. At the price the property is being offered it represents exceptional value for money when compared to alternative properties available on the market with comparable attributes in any of the surrounding farming regions. Its potential for further development is enormous, with so many options for use and lifestyle.
