44.23 Ha (approx. 109 acres) of ex Dairy land with direct frontage to the Manning River. This is an absolute prime piece of real estate with a northern aspect towards the river. Very few properties can boast a sandy beach access with a short boat ride across the Manning to Harrington and giving access to some of the most pristine waterways on the Mid North Coast.
This block has flood free areas close by the river making it the perfect blank canvass to design and build your dream home. This property has an array of uses with a wetland area at the rear of the property to open pasture improved paddocks running all the way to the river. A small tidal tributary gives the perfect place to throw in a crab pot or two and experience thrill of catching large mud crabs at your door step. Fishing and boating in this part of the river is excellent or just allow yourself to laze back in the chair catch the northern sun and gaze directly out over the water.
This property in the past was a standalone dairy farm, in more recent years it has been utilised as an amalgamation of a larger enterprise and due to the closure of the dairy operation in July is being sold off allowing the owners to consolidate. It has the original old dairy erected on site which has been transformed in recent years to a rustic weekender and entertainment Mecca. There are numerous out buildings in various conditions and a huge machinery shed sits out proud. There are three wells on the property with varying capacity with the owners indication the main well has never been restrictive of fresh water. Electricity is connected.
