PROPERTY HAS BEEN IN FAMILY HANDS 68 YEARS
Two homes on this productive Horrane property
OWNER Pat Weir is offering the property Donegal, located in the high-performing Horrane district on the Central Downs, for auction.
Pat said he had fond memories of Donegal, which had been in the family since 1946, but he was looking to concentrate on other interests.
Offering about 404 hectares of cultivation, with minimum till on two-metre centres, the total property is about 517ha on two freehold titles, 8km south-east of Cecil Plains.
The country is alluvial self-mulching black soil box country, of which about 142ha is fertilised in preparation for winter crop/summer crop with the balance of 263ha standing barley stubble.
Water is supplied by a stock and domestic bore, equipped with electric submersible pump.
There are two 19,000L poly water tanks and poly pipeline to grazing country. Survey plans have been drawn up for a 447-megalitre water storage and a 42ML sump.
Donegal’s grazing country is boundary-fenced with four barb, offering one internal paddock and a set of timber cattle yards.
A modern four-bedroom, two-bathroom, eight-year-old Hardiplank home is on the property. It has polished floors, air-conditioning, a carport, and two-car lock-up garage. Water is supplied by three 19,000L rainwater tanks. There is a second four-bedroom home, plus machinery and hay sheds, workshop and silos.
The property goes to auction on May 8 at BMO, Drayton St, Dalby, at 5.30pm.
