An estate realisation after multiple decades of family ownership will present the opportunity to acquire a noted Rupanyup district cropping and grazing holding.
The property known as Fyvie at 45 Middas Road is located about six and a half kilometres north west of Rupanyup township with excellent access afforded via the Stawell -Warracknabeal Road.
Rodwells Ruralco Property Stawell office based agent Max Brown has been appointed to sell Fyvie by auction initially as a whole of 575 hectares or 1420 acres, or alternatively if it fails to sell as a whole as three blocks as Lot 1 of 349 hectares or 864 acres, Lot 2 of 81 hectares or 202 acres, or as Lot 3 of 139 hectares or 345 acres.
All of the lots hold multiple local road access points with the entire holding being rectangular in nature.
Under its long ownership by members of the Florence family the property has been used as a cropping enterprise successfully producing wheat, pulse or specialty crops and also to run sheep for essentially fat lamb production.
The property is ideally set up for these enterprises with a good quality paddock layout, with a significant quantum of new fencing, good workable stock handling facilities with a reliable water supply that includes a connection to the GWM pipe system.
A significant cropping program is currently in operation.
Additional infrastructure includes a large hay storage building with a capacity of 1,000 big bales, two machinery sheds and a mix of other farm support buildings.
Located on the property is the classic four bedroom family homestead that dates to about 1922 when the original homestead was partially destroyed by fire and rebuilt.
More recently it has undergone a major refurbishment, including to all services, with a new kitchen and living areas enhanced to present as a quality home of substance that is ideal for a farming family.
In addition to the piped water supply the home has about 250,000 litres of tank stored water resources and it is set in an established garden.
The successful purchaser will also hold the option to buy the on-property grain silo storages of five silos of seventy five tonnes in capacity, one of fifty tonnes and another two of 100 tonnes.
Rodwells Ruralco Property selling agent Max Brown says that the offer at an estate auction of the Fyvie holding as a whole, or as an optional three lots, affords an excellent entry opportunity into a renowned farming district with easy access to all the services that Rupanyup itself, population in excess of five hundred offers, with the notable towns and farming districts of Minyip, Murtoa and Horsham all within easy reach.
“In this area you have to await long held or family owned realisations to get a foothold in the acclaimed farming opportunities.
“This auction presents a rare opportunity to secure a good sized holding in this tightly held district.
“I am expecting that the overall realisation will be for in excess of $4 million“ Max Brown says.
The auction will be held at the Rupanyup Community Centre in Gibson Street on Friday 14 September at 1 pm.
