A prime farming block of 80 hectares (or 200 acres) on the Kiewa Valley Highway only 15 minutes east of Wodonga is coming up for auction on Saturday 17 March at 11 am at St Marks Anglican Church Hall at Tangambalanga with prior offers invited.
The vendors Peter and Leonie Adams home farm is at Staghorn Flat and say that that the sale of this block is part of their plan to downsize.
The Berkeley Moor property is a mix of rich river flats with a direct exposure of some 600 metres to the Kiewa River.
The portion of river flats retain a mix of good pasture, vegetation and majestic red gums while the balance of the property is the higher ground where there are numerous potential home building sites.
Located in the Indigo Shire there is an as of right entitlement to obtain a building permit for a home on the property.
The holding is essentially rectangular with about 400 metres frontage to the Kiewa Valley Highway.
Peter Adams says he normally runs fifty cows and calves on the property where the pastures receive a regular annual superphosphate application.
“There is good fencing, a set of cattle yards and a large steel framed hay shed on Berkeley Moor together with an old original dairy building.
“The Hume Weir is only ten minutes away with 88kms to Falls Creek” he notes.
Ruralco Property selling agent Peter Ruaro says that this property appeals on two important aspects.
“Firstly, this is simply beautiful river frontage country with a myriad of building sites available to take in district views.
“Secondly for a district resident or a businessman wanting just to continue cattle breeding or grazing or any other agricultural pursuits, the proximity to Wodonga is a real plus.
“Properties of this calibre and scale are almost impossible to source in the tightly held local area so we are anticipating offers will be in the circa $1.2 million bracket” Mr Ruaro says.
