'Mirradong', 74C Back Arragons Road, Adelong
THE TRIFECTA - HIGH RAINFALL, BASALT SOILS, EXCELLENT FERTILITY - 1,665 ACRES OF ADELONG MAGIC
Situated in the tightly held Adelong Valley, 4 hours west of Sydney, 50 minutes from Wagga Airport and 5 minutes from the charming town of Adelong, 'Mirradong' offers both a highly productive cattle property and a beautiful rural lifestyle. With a reliable average annual rainfall of over 800mm, this property is a production powerhouse.
Under the current management, 'Mirradong' has been run as a successful cattle trading operation. A lane way system through the middle of the property connects two large sets of cattle yards. The infrastructure has been designed to run using only one unit of labour. Fencing is mainly new and a water system has been installed ensuring every paddock has a good supply of water at all times. The spring fed dam in the centre of the property has never been dry and is an extremely reliable source of water.
Pastures are of a very high standard with approx. 335 acres sown to phalaris, approx. 580 acres to perennial rye grass and the balance being a mixture of perennial rye grass, native grasses and sub clover. There is a large amount of sub clover across the entire property.
The current owners have invested a huge amount of money in improving the fertility of the soils. Single super, urea and lime have been generously spread across the property over the last 5 years. All of these records are available.
The property is sub divided into 30 paddocks with 90% of the fencing renewed over the last 5 years. Both sets of cattle yards have been designed to handle big mobs of cattle easily and efficiently. Both sets of yards have handled mobs of around 1,000 head.
The 4 bedroom weatherboard homestead (circa early 1900's) is nestled into the hills and has a beautiful north-easterly aspect. Features of the homestead include;
- 3 bathrooms
- modern kitchen
- large family room
- dining room
- large undercover entertaining room
- ceiling fans
- reverse air conditioning/heating
- full size office
- 2 slow combustion heaters
A large workshop/machinery shed sits between the homestead and the main set of cattle yards.
