About this listing
With 2kms of frontage to the permanent and picturesque Swamp Oak Creek and a 12mL water licence "Mooroobee" has many attractive features and so much to offer.
Set on approx. 650 acres the management of the property has been set up to maximise efficiency so that the current vendors run "Mooroobee" as a 'one-man' operation. Apart from stocking the property any new owner would have the minimum of fuss and bother in moving onto and enjoying 'Mooroobee'.
The country is interesting and scenic with alluvial creek flats moving up to gentle undulation and then onto more timbered and open hill country with open grazing areas. There is approximately 40 to 50 acres of cultivation, mainly lucerne. with potential to increase this further.
Aside from access to Swamp Oak Creek and the 12mL river licence, water infrastructure includes a 2,500 gal/hr bore fitted with an electric submersible pump that provides reticulated water to troughs, 6 dams and numerous rain water tanks that service the house and gardens.
Basalt soils are typical for the locality with some shale and trap rock soils also found on the property. In terms of carrying capacity, the vendor suggests 60 cows and calves would be appropriate but again there is the potential to increase these numbers.
Home improvements include a delightful 4-bedroom, full brick homestead that is around 100 years old and offers very manageable, well presented accommodation and the current owners have retained the historic nature of the home.
The gardens are worthy of special mention as they have been beautifully tended with lawns, shrubs, well stocked rose beds and an abundance of fruit trees.
Infrastucture is substantial with numerous sheds including a sizeable machinery shed and large workshop with concrete slab floor, additional hay and storage sheds, dog kennels and bird cages.
Mooroobee is located approx.. 42kms from the centre of Tamworth and 22kms from Kootingal. There is a school bus service to the property.
