One of New England finest beef and sheep production powerhouses is being offered to the market.
“Stockton” is a rare find in the highly competitive property market. “Stockton” is an excellent grazing property consisting of fertile trap soils across an undulating landscape with scattered mature trees. There is some nice, sheltered timber areas and soft gullies to protect stock in inclement weather.
The property is well fenced into 21 paddocks with a laneway system leading to the main yards. There is a great array of dams and waterways that service water to all the paddocks. There is a large dam not far from the homestead which offers some great lifestyle opportunities including fishing, swimming, kayaking etc
“Stockton” would approximately be 60% arable. This lends itself to plant improved pastures to significantly lift the current approximate stocking rates of 350 cows and calves.
The infrastructure is a real asset to “Stockton”. Having an excellent set of steel cattle yards, two sets of sheep yards and a five-stand woolshed with the weather shed holding 1000 head capacity. It is rare nowadays to find a property with both beef and sheep infrastructure of this quality.
The homestead is an exceptional 1960s brick home with an excellent kitchen, dining/lounge rooms. Having four bedrooms there is plenty of room for the large family. “Stockton” also boasts a well-maintained two-bedroom workers cottage. This cottage offers the flexibility to expand the family or even have a second-generation live and work on the property.
The location of “Stockton” is very hard to come by being only located 20 minutes east of the major regional centre of Armidale. This great location offers school bus to the front gate with sealed road all the way. Armidale is well known for great schools including the University of New England campus.
For an eastern fall grazing property of such high quality to hit the open market in the current highly competitive property and livestock market is very rare and will be sought after.
