Location! Water! Horticulture Opportunity!110 HA (271 AC)
One of the first irrigated properties in Western Australia, 210 Barn Road is renowned for its fertile soils and excellent water supply.
Current owners operated a very successful and highly profitable watermelon enterprise in the past, with watermelons grown being highly sought after due to their consistent quality and taste. There are also irrigated citrus orchards over sections of the property. There is plenty of scope to expand the horticultural production of the farm plus currently carrying approximately 650 to 700 Ewe's.
There is a 213,000 Kl water licence, allows the owner to draw water year-round from soaks, creeks and dams on the property.
A huge amount of money has been invested in building quality sheds and upgrading the power supply to 3 Phase.
The main shed is 240f x 70f x 25f with concrete floors and walls and has been used as a packing shed and for machinery storage, although would be suitable as a large scale workshop or for a truck or storage depot. In addition to this shed, there is also a lean-to 120f x 40f x 25f. Secondary shed is 150f x 66f x 20f.
There are two older style homes on the property, with the house on the hill being circa 1930 and enjoying a beautiful aspect over the surrounding farmland. This house has undergone significant structural renovations and is ready for new buyers to complete the renovation to their specifications. The second house has recently had wide verandahs and new cladding installed and is of some historical interest.
Seasonal employees are well catered for with numerous dongas providing 6 bedrooms plus common areas.
Consisting of five lots over four freehold titles, the property is perfectly located in a secluded yet convenient location. The property is within 20km of both Bindoon and Gingin and within 95km from Perth. The recently upgraded and extended Tonkin Highway has significantly reduced travel times to and from Perth.
It is difficult to secure a property which offers such a diverse range of opportunities, with its true potential only limited by imagination.
