Versatile mixed farming property in a reliable coastal location

Located 45km north west of Northampton and just 8km from the beach (25km by road), this versatile property provides an opportunity to acquire a well-established mixed farming enterprise with reliable coastal rainfall.

Owned by the same family for three generations, 'Oceanview' comprises of 1965ha in total, with 1100ha considered arable. The soil types consist of gravelly loam, sandy loam, sand over gravel and lesser areas of shale/clay based soils. Then property receives approximately 400mm rainfall annually, with 300 - 350mm during the growing season.

The annual cropping program consists of up to 550ha of wheat, barley and lupins, with the balance left to annual pasture (most areas with either well established blue lupins or clover) and regenerating hard seeded serradella to support the 700 - 1000 merino ewe enterprise.

The property has a sound nutrition base, with a fertiliser programme of 13-14kg / ha P applied in the cropping phase, with NKS / NS products topdressed at 100 - 120kg/ha on cereals.

The owner's attention to landcare initiatives are evident in the mature replanted tree lines along fences and creeks, of which the earliest plantings were conducted in 1980. The well maintained fences are another key feature of 'Oceanview', with primarily pine posts and 6-7 line ringlock used to subdivide the property into its 23 paddocks.

Areas of breakway and remnant vegetation host a variety of wildflowers from June - October, with agri-tourism opportunities adding to the property's appeal.

Water supply is secure and plentiful. The main bore is equipped with a 10 panel solar system, pumping up to 1800L/hour to 5 storage tanks (approximately 125kl in total). Water is then gravity fed to a further 9 paddock tanks and 24 troughs throughout the property (most paddocks can host two troughs if the need arises). This is supplemented by a permanent soak and an additional windmill equipped bore close to the sheds.

The comfortable air-conditioned homestead features 4 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, a large semi enclosed outdoor entertaining area, pleasant gardens and an adjacent 2 car garage.

Infrastructure includes a four stand shearing shed with adjoining 10m x 18m lean-to, 8m x 14m concrete floor workshop and a 25m x 12m machinery shed. Approximately140t grain storage over 4 silos, a 125t fertiliser shed and a 1000 head capacity sheep yards complete the fixed improvements.

'Oceanview' contains gravel reserves contracted to Main Roads WA, with excess product used around the property for track maintenance. Further opportunities to diversify the property's income are found in the 11 purpose built marron ponds.

The property's location between Horrocks and Port Gregory, together with being just an hours drive to key services in Geraldton, complement 'Oceanview's obvious agricultural value and production diversity.

This property presents a great opportunity to purchase a quality self-contained satellite property to increase scale, a perfect add on for local farming businesses or an accessible grazing property for pastoralists.
