Best of Both Worlds on Flinders Island.This lovely rural lifestyle property offers amazing opportunities to own your own valley, to farm cattle and/or sheep, to run a successful cropping operation or to pursue other agricultural avenues as well. Land area is approximately 377.36 hectares/932.45 acres in two freehold titles with lovely sweeping views toward the ocean, mountain ranges and outer Furneaux group of islands. The property has the water, soil types, fencing and fertility to provide a great financial return and offers a wonderful Flinders Island lifestyle opportunity for the new owners! Yearly production demonstrates the excellent productivity that can be generated from this property and this could be further expanded upon to realize decent capital gains. The soil holds summer moisture as well as having a permanent water bore servicing the home and livestock which is reticulated throughout the property to water troughs. There are 13 dams on the property and the vendors have successfully operated a small scale irrigation system in the past. The large spring fed dam could provide a small scale irrigation opportunity once again. The soils vary from dense nutrient holding darker soils to some red soils and to lighter well drained sandier soils that do hold moisture and paddocks have been sown into permanent Victorian rye grass pasture. Fencing is in really good condition and well maintained on both the boundary and the internal fences.
The vendor's current agricultural contracting business (hay, silage, spraying and cultivation) can be continued by a new owner if so desired and would provide a significant additional source of income. The home has recently had some quality renovations undertaken. It has 2 good sized bedrooms, the master suite with its own walk in robe and built ins, as well as an office which could potentially convert to a smaller third bedroom or nursery.
