Broadlands Farm a 1,345 hectare holding 78 kilometres from the Brisbane GPO will be offered to the market by Public Auction on 20th July 2012 at the Ray White Auctions. Andrew Adcock, Ray White Rural (QLD) Principal said “Broadlands Farm is a rare property for size, scale, and it’s proximity to Brisbane and the Gold Coast. The 9 freehold titles ranging in size from 177 acres to 896 acres have been accumulated over a 25 year period to give the property double frontage to the Cainbable Creek and privacy in the valley.
Broadlands Farm features quality infrastructure including a main homestead with formal and informal living, 4 bedrooms, open front and side verandahs, 2 offices, attached 3 car garage, rear courtyard, set on a garden of low maintenance trees and shrubs. Other residential accommodation on the holding includes another homestead, manager’s residence and 3 farmhouses.
The stock improvements of Broadlands Farm focus on abundant water delivered from 12 bores to an intergrated trough system, supplemented from the Cainbable Creek and numerous permanent and semi permanent dams and springs. The fencing is constructed mostly of 4 barbs on wooden posts with a laneway system linking most of the property to the cattle yards.
Broadlands Farm has operated as an EU cattle breeding and fattening operation, with 56 hectares approx irrigated and sown with a mix of Lucerne, Rye, Clover, Oats and Kikuyu.
The gentle flats of the Cainbable Creek rising into the gentle slopes of Mount Witheren, make for a property of diverse country types, in an area where this is regarded as prime real estate. Serious bidding for a property of this magnitude is expected to commence at $8 million. The district is highly sought after by thoroughbred breeders, beef producers and lifestyle participants. A freehold property of this size in this location is a rare commodity.
