A fabulous opportunity to purchase 12.68 hectares of rural land handy to Fairlie. Whether you build straight away or farm it as an investment for the future you will enjoy spending time here with the gorgeous 180 degree views it has to offer.
Situated on Fairlie's 'Golden Mile', it has an elevated building site at the rear of the property for the best views. There is power and Fairlie Town Water at the road entrance, a spring fed pond in the middle of the property and piped stock water.
Most of the boundary fences are deer fenced and internal sheep fences create 6 grazing paddocks. The property is currently running 16 eighteen month cattle and 2 older steers (autumn), with 60 bales of meadow hay and 27 bales of balage made on the property last season. A 'Great Southern' two-bay pole shed provides storage and small, but useful, sheep and cattle yards are alongside.
A very manageable lifestyle block, a few neighbours, but it's still like being out in a 'world of your own'. If you are looking for options, this is something you need to look at!
