GLASCAR FARM - Wangaratta town edge King river frontage, would suit the retiring farmer!
For private sale the highly desirable property known as Glascar Farm at 22 Taylors Lane, situated only three kilometres east of the centre of Wangaratta. The property has a land area of 21 hectares, or 52 acres held as six titles, all highly desirable red gum flat country adjacent to the King River to which the property holds an almost one kilometre frontage. Apart from its highly desirable rural living appeal this property offers multiple enterprise options including equine, livestock, or a variety of other pursuits on productive acreage. First there is the home, a rendered brick homestead in an Arts & Crafts style built in 1930 of about twenty squares. It offers three bedrooms, two bathrooms with a main ensuite, a quality kitchen, plus a study or home office, and is light filled with several rooms having French door access for outdoor living, entertaining or dining. The home presents impeccably with the features of high ceiling heights of over four metres throughout, with significant veranda areas, and it has recently been repainted and recarpeted throughout. Importantly it sits amongst a magnificent established and spectacular garden and lawned area inclusive of many specimen trees. These include a large Californian redwood, dozens of large elm trees plus hundreds of redgums, five of which that are recorded as being significant. But it is the acreage that will attract a buyer wanting an enterprise choice. There is a paddock subdivision of eleven around a central laneway plus yards and a loading race with all fencing of livestock quality. Extensively pastured there are two substantial billabong type depressions which are plumbed to drain quickly after a high river flow condition. This creates a substantial volume of follow up pasture feed enabling the vendor in most years to cut a volume of big round rolls of hay off the holding - most recently 240 rolls. He is currently running twenty Angus steers which he considers a very conservative stocking rate considering the substantial and reliable volume of feed this property produces. There is attractive and quality fencing with a significant quantity of equine infrastructure established by an earlier owner. These include a four bay rubber lined stable block complex, eleven horse shelters in paddocks which have equine standard fencing, even a round yard and lunging area. A substantial mix of useful other building assets include an old tobacco kiln (potential for restoration?), a machinery shed, chicken run, securely fenced vegetable garden, with a double car garage and workshop building adjacent to the home. There are significant water resources inclusive of a two megalitre stock and domestic water right, an electric pump equipped bore, and a rain water tank storage for household needs. These also support a stock trough system throughout, plus a lawn and garden irrigation system. The highly attractive Glascar Farm provides ideal rural living with proximity to all that Wangaratta and the featured north east region offers. The existing equine facilities will suit a competitive, showing, or breeding equine interest, even to a thoroughbred hobby breeder, or an owner- trainer, as the noted Wangaratta Racecourse is only six kilometres away. This property as being ideal for a farmer selling or retiring off a large holding as everything is in place to easily run a good number of stock, or to conserve hay. To this end the vendors will also negotiate with the purchaser on the sale of their virtually new Massey Ferguson MF 2615 4x4 tractor and associated implements like the four way bucket, hydraulic tynes, slasher, grader blade, ride on mower, Log splitter, rotary hoe, and general farm machinery that would be a seamless hand over for anyone wanting to continue to operate Glascar Farm in the current highly efficient manner. The vendors have owned this property for the last six years and bought it after selling the family farm when the children moved on relocating to Torquay to consider retirement. But they found the lure of the land and rural living irresistible and having family connections in the north east they bought this property. Now they are ready to fully retire and with their family grown up and moved interstate their wish is to relocate to be closer to them. âGlascar Farm in an ideal town edge position with the many attractive features, productivity and improvements presents impressively and it has always had long periods of local family ownership. It is outstanding value at the $1.3 million asking price.
This property canot be fully appreciated without a visit. It is truely unique.
