"Sawpit Creek Farm" consists of 321 acres of productive grazing and lifestyle land ranging from arable creek flats to undulating ridges and hills, featuring pockets of rainforest. The property borders the National Parks at the rear of the property and Sawpit Creek at the front. Located 39kms from Kyogle at the junction of both Sawpit & Findon Creeks, it’s situated in an idyllic valley with spectacular views of Mount Lindsay to the west.
The property has a modest 100+ year-old, 3-bedroom 2-bathroom country cottage featuring original polished hardwood sourced from the property. But the feature of the property is undoubtedly the beautifully crafted timber barn which the current owners have utilised for entertaining. The barn has been equipped with commercial-grade appliances and lighting, an antique chandelier and a stunning French provincial Chiminees Philippe triple-sided wood fireplace.
The pretty, winding drive to the house and barn starts with an impressive timber entry statement and is lined with just under 50 Amber Blaze maple trees which will eventually grow to over 40 feet in height.
In the last four years, the owners have invested heavily in the property, dividing it into 11 paddocks with all new fencing and water troughs in each paddock, and a 150,000 litre tank and dam.
The property has also had pipelines installed to irrigate the creek flats and undulating hills for further pasture improvement.
Other infrastructure includes a storage shed, steel stockyards with a vet crush and steel loading ramp.
Soils range from red to chocolate basalts which are ideal for small cropping. Crops can be grown all year round utilising a fully equipped irrigation bore that has a 40 megalitre license and by using the "K" Line irrigation system.
In addition to the irrigation, you also have the benefit of Sawpit Creek for domestic and stock water, as well as multiple spring gullies.
The property currently runs 70 breeders.
Perfectly located to access the city or the coast, Sawpit Creek is 2.15 hours’ drive to Brisbane and Kingscliff, and 2.5 hours’ drive to Byron Bay.
Developed properties such as this rarely make it to the market, and this is an excellent opportunity to secure a stunning property in the lush Northern Rivers district.
