Fig Tree Farm is a magnificent property that is located in one of the best rural areas on the Sunshine Coast offers – Belli Park. 23.29 ha or 57.55 acres, the property has been a horse property for over 40 years with the current owners building up the operation to be the largest Morgan horse stud in Australia.
For those who like character the property has a 1934 Queenslander which is located in an established garden of majestic Morton Bay Fig trees and stag horns. The home has 3 bedrooms, ensuite, main bathroom, newly renovated kitchen, lounge, dining area plus beautiful polished timber floors throughout. For those hot summer days there is an inground swimming pool. The current owners did intend lifting the home up and building further living area underneath which is a viable option should you wish to enlarge the home. There is also a separate one bedroom manager’s residence ideal for accommodating farm hands or kept for visiting family or friends.
Set high on the property and accessed by an internal road there is what we call the Studio Site. Connected to power and phone this site looks across the whole of the property and has spectacular views across the valley to the distant ranges. This would (with council approval), be a superb site for a further home.
The property has two stable buildings with the main stables having 13 boxes Eleven- 4m x 4m and two- 4m x 8m foaling boxes. There is a wash bay, tack room and feed room. The second building (called The Lodge) is block construction with a stainless steel kitchen and incorporates another 6 boxes 2 large 5m x 7m plus four small ones great for ponies or storage. Two Stallion yards adjoin the building.
There are a total of 11 paddocks, connected via lane ways which include a foaling paddock in front of the house for easy monitoring plus a shady holding yard and breeding yards with a teasing wall. Fencing throughout the property is 4 plain wires with an offset hot wire.
Other facilities include a covered 12 meter diameter round yard, a grassed arena and cattle yards with race and loading ramp. For farm storage there is four bay machinery shed with a side skillion roofed area, ideal for storage of a gooseneck. The Bali Hut has a workers shower and toilet and a horse laundry for washing of rugs.
Water is obtained from three dams, one spring feed pond plus tanks on all buildings.
Years ago, there was even a training track around the property which could still be reinstated with some works.
For the endurance riders there is 10,000 hectares of National Park close by with numerous horse trails.
Located in the northern part of the Sunshine coast Belli Park is only a 10 minute drive to Eumundi Township and a 30 minute drive to Noosa (google maps.)
Sadly for the owners it is time to sell. The horses are gone and it is time for new owners to reinvigorate the property as a premiere horse facility.
