'Blairgowrie' - 170 acres with Yass River Frontage
Location 'Blairgowrie' is located approx. 30km east of Yass on the tightly held Yass River Road, 17km from Murrumbateman, 53km North of Canberra and approximately 260km from Sydney airport. Property Description 'Blairgowrie' consists of 68.84ha of highly arable farming and grazing country positioned along the secure Yass River. Being under an hour to Canberra makes this the perfect lifestyle holding for those wanting to add agriculture into their pursuits while maintaining the employment and education opportunities afforded in Canberra. Improvements The three-bedroom cottage radiates country charm with high ceilings, patterned cornices and doors opening onto the verandahs. Elegantly catering to guests, the formal living and dining, with the ambiance of a wood fire, hark back to a quieter age, while the functional kitchen with gas cooking and sunroom allow for the family to gather around the farmhouse table. The three bedrooms are all generously sized with the master having built in wardrobes and ensuite. The remaining bedrooms share the family bathroom and additional shower in the laundry. Slow combustion and gas heating supported by RCAC completes the modern comforts.
Easy care gardens and a tree lined drive surround the home and enhance the country atmosphere. The garage has been recently re-clad and is ideal for vehicle parking or storage of garden equipment. A solar panel installation back to the grid assists with reducing the properties running costs.
The agricultural infrastructure includes a woolshed (metered for electricity separately from the cottage) and a hay/machinery shed. Both are positioned to be distinct from the home and easily accessible for stock management. Water An abundance of water is offered with approximately 2.5km of deep water frontage on the Yass River, with a pump on the river feeding to a header tank, supported by numerous dams and troughs ensuring water to all paddocks. Rainwater tanks service the potable water to the cottage. Agronomy & Fencing Blairgowrie's rich alluvial soils have been enhanced by a strong history of fertiliser application, pasture improvement and regeneration and weed eradication, making for a property highly suitable for breeding, finishing and some cropping. The vendors have been running a self-replacing sheep flock along with finishing steers and fodder crops.

A sound laneway system makes stock movements and rotation easy.
