88 ACRE COASTAL FARM WITH HUGE POTENTIAL / LIFESTYLE, PORT STEPHENS, NSW
Bobs Farm, Port Stephens area, near Newcastle, NSW
Property Type / Size
A well developed 88 Acre (35.88 Hectare) productive farm ideal for agricultural, horticultural and/or tourism pursuits.
Development includes a quality brick veneer 3-bedroom family home and adjacent annex building. Fully insulated and on high ground, the house is fanned by sea breezes and overlooks the flatland paddocks which are mostly cleared for grazing. Ample fresh water tanks and licensed bores provide drought-proof farming and a pleasant lifestyle. Installed pumps and piping systems provide fire protection as well as servicing cattle troughs and former gardens.
This drought-resistant property is close to Newcastle Airport and only 40 minutes to Newcastle CBD. Sydney too is just 2 hours away via the F3 Freeway with four easy access routes to the north and south.
The farm is well developed and maintained with fenced paddocks and a permanent 5 megalitres water licence.
Formerly a dairy farm, the property is Zone 1(a) Agriculture, potentially sustaining two cottages and has been used for beef cattle fattening, horse agistment and native flower horticulture. Due to its ready availability of sub-terranean water, consideration might also be given to water buffalo management and cheese manufacture.
Typical land use for the immediate region includes orchards, vineyards, avocado and olive groves, oyster and fish farms, hydroponic and/or ground-planted vegetables, cattle fattening lots and other tourism ventures such as Farm-Stay and B&B. Any number of these activities is also suitable for this property.
