Exotic Tropical Fruit Farm - UNDER CONTRACT
Horticulture Sold - AMAMOOR QLD
The deep rich red soils throughout this exotic tropical fruit farm are clearly some of the best in Amamoor. This acreage has a NE aspect and has 2 road frontages – the Amamoor-Dagun Road and the Moorhouse Gully Road. The property is located just 19 kilometres from Gympie and an easy drive to Amamoor and Dagun townships.
The label, exotic tropical fruit farm’, is quite proper, as there are many genetically unique varieties that may be the only examples in Australia. There are roughly 100 varieties of fruit trees that have provided a strong income for the owners.
The home has been totally and lovingly restored. It is a Queensland country-style home but not a Queenslander. It boasts beautiful pine wood floors, attractive wooden features, doors, window frames, and very high ceilings. The home absolutely oozes charm. The home is situated to take in the astounding valley views.
The kitchen/dining room, with its silky oak benchtop, plentiful kitchen cupboards and beautiful tiling, has a yesteryear ambiance but with modern high end Bellini appliances. Down a corridor to the sunroom/family room are 3 sizeable bedrooms, the master with BIR’s, and a beautifully appointed family bathroom. The home has that ageless elegance that yields a rich warm feeling.
There are 3 outdoor sitting areas – the back patio by the kitchen under a grapevine covered pergola, the front entrance balcony and yet another balcony. Each has been intended to maximise different vantage points of the panoramic views.
There is a guest bedroom, sitting room, shower, and laundry on the lower level of the house. A door leads out to a secluded paved patio that takes in the spectacular vistas.
Of the nearly 30 acres, about 25 acres are useable. The land has several areas for orchards and cleared paddocks for livestock. One paddock of about 5 acres, along the Amamoor-Dagun Road, is ideal for horses. The other is best for cattle. This paddock leads into the solid and sturdy cattle yards designed for free flowing movement of cattle. Most of the fencing is in very good repair, with many new gates and a central driveway up to the house.
Rarely can it be said that a property is drought proof. This exotic tropical fruit farm has a superb water supply. All the farm needs come from a 35 m deep bore that transverses 3 underwater sources. The pumps are 3-phase. The property also boasts a deep dam that is fed by a year-round flowing stream and springs. Irrigation and stock water is directed by a simple series of valves. For the orchards, there is an inline fertilisation system. Stock troughs are gravity fed by a tank on the hill.
Up the hill, by the house, is a large, all-purpose concrete floored shed with a freezer/cool room with 3-phase power. The double garage is next to the house.
As mentioned, there are well established businesses that are included with the sale of the property. The owners have sold their produce at festivals and markets all over SE Queensland and have regular clients. But, now the owners plan to retire.
This is a commercial exotic tropical fruit farm. All the trees are labelled and there are over 100 different varieties of fruits, including custard apples, citrus, banana, mango, avocado, nuts, dragon fruit, grapes, Koubo cactus (Eden fruit), figs, sapotes, pomelos, pears, etc.
The business figures are available to serious buyers. To arrange an inspection of this exotic tropical fruit farm, please contact Alan Broder, 040 955 3877.
