Historic "Bremer View", with its charming homestead and soft country, is to be sold in April.
Located at Lower Mount Walker, which is renowned for having some of the most productive lands in either the Scenic Rim or Ipswich Shires, this quality lifestyle farm sits on nearly 300 riverfront acres and is thought to be one of the original selections of the fertile Bremer Valley. Amazingly though Bremer View is just 55 minutes from the hub of Brisbane's CBD. Rosewood, with its electric city train to Brisbane & beyond is 15 minutes away and both Amberley & Ipswich another 10 minutes.
The 289 acres in 2 freehold titles is a very well grassed grazing farm. Most of the acreage is cleared with predominately fertile black soil and large areas of soft river flats, which have produced quality cattle along with crops for the current owners for the last 25 years. Of special note, there has been only 29 head of cattle graze here for the past 2 years there is an abundance of feed here!
Bremer View is well watered with 5 bores, a large dam, and numerous tanks and of course the 800 metres of Bremer River frontage. There is a 4 hectare Water Licence to pump from the river. Four inch mains from 2 of the bores allow a section of the property to be irrigated.
The farm has 3 phase power, 5 sheds and steel stock yards with crush and loading ramp. There is also a mature orchard featuring orange, lemons, grapefruit and lime trees: also with an underground watering system. Importantly the farm is accessed by sealed roads.
Originally built in 1890, the gracious and welcoming 5 bedroom and 3 bathroom colonial homestead exuberates the charm of old pastoral traditions but has the benefits of modern conveniences. This is a homestead with a very comfortable feel. The homestead paddock is well watered with an underground watering system, with the home set amongst lovely mature gardens, lawns and trees including the 100 year old pepperina tree.
Bremer View is named appropriately: the views from the homestead and the vast majority of the farm are stunning at any time of the day. The nearby volcanic core of Mount Walker is striking but no more so than the spectacular mountain peaks, ranges and escarpments of the Main Range National Park, an Australian World Heritage Area.
A Wonderful Opportunity:
Bremer View represents an outstanding chance to live, farm and entertain in a lovely homestead set on some very good country. Whether inside the garden fence, down by the river, riding a horse around your cows or watching the kids barrel race, "Bremer View" offers it all so close to all amenities. This is a very pretty, private and quiet farm.
Granddad and Grandma are retiring to the city to be closer to the family. Naturally it had been a difficult decision to disperse of the property but they really look forward to being closer to their 14 very sad grandkids who now accept the farm is being sold very soon. Bremer View is ideal for a growing family or when the family members return with their children as has been the case here for the past 15 years. "Bremer View" features a highly desirable location and a fantastic lifestyle opportunity.and is less than an hour to the centre of Brisbane.
But Bremer View is to be sold! A wonderful opportunity awaits ..but not for very long!
