LAWD is pleased to present for sale Macquarie, (The Property) an extremely significant piece of Australian history, the first farm and homestead west of the Blue Mountains, selected by explorer William Lawson.
The Property features an authentically restored six* bedroom and three* bathroom homestead constructed between 1822 and 1824. Significant restoration has occurred along with renewal of all auxiliary services, including electrical and plumbing.
Panoramic views across the Property to the Fish river, completes a stunning package
The fully restored convict barracks now offers air-conditioned open plan accommodation with lounge and sleeping area, study, and kitchenette plus a modern limestone bathroom. Stunning timber ceilings, timber windows, beams and floors all come together to retain the original character of the Macquarie convict barracks.
The shearers quarters and men’s hut have also been fully restored.
The impressive combination of colonial buildings at Macquarie would make for a stunning reception centre, B&B, honeymoon suite or accommodate friends and family in the most gracious of settings.
Investment security at Macquarie is underpinned by a five* lot sub-division landbank opportunity, and its proximity to the major regional City of Bathurst, Sydney, and Newcastle
160* hectares of alluvial river flats along the Fish river, provide opportunity for a wide range of agricultural enterprises. Vegetables, lucerne, fodder crops, dryland winter crops and pastures, have all been grown at Macquarie.
Production is supported by 638* millimetres annual rainfall, and 138* megalitres water entitlements from the Fish River.
Stock water is secured by dams and river with a solar pump, delivering water to an integrated system of tanks and troughs. Water is available in all paddocks.
The open grazing land is well suited to the establishment of perennial pastures.
Macquarie has had a recent history of stock trading as its major enterprise. It is estimated that the Property has a rating of 5000* DSE.
The environmental package is completed with the birdlife sanctuary in the lagoon.
Macquarie has a full array of working improvements with a new set of Red River cattle yards, 120* working head capacity, complete with veterinary crush and loading ramp, a new set of Red River sheepyards with a single drenching race, three-way draft, and a working capacity of 800* head.
