This Ko­jonup farm­ing prop­erty has a lease ar­range­ment.

Ku­ta­mundra, 23km west of Ko­jonup, sup­ports a highly pro­duc­tive sheep farm­ing en­ter­prise fo­cus­ing on meat and wool.

The prop­erty was ac­quired by the cur­rent own­ers as a bare block and in re­cent years de­vel­oped into a well im­proved, stand­alone smaller farm­ing unit.

Orig­i­nally tim­bered with wan­doo, jam and flooded gums, the soil types are typ­i­cally medium sandy du­plex loams with high-qual­ity clover dom­i­nant pas­tures ca­pa­ble of turn­ing off plenty of sappy prime lambs.

Ku­ta­mundra has nine main pad­docks and three smaller hold­ing pad­docks with troughs near the shear­ing shed and sheep yards.

The own­ers have been able to de­sign the pad­docks and mostly erect the fences from scratch.

The sheep yards have been well de­signed and solidly con­structed by the owner us­ing steel pip­ing, pan­elling and con­veyor belt­ing.

The yards are very strong and the sheep run through the bu­gle de­sign and three-way draft­ing sys­tem ef­fort­lessly.

A new five-stand shear­ing shed with raised board tops off the sheep-han­dling in­fra­struc­ture, mak­ing shear­ing a breeze.

The wool-han­dling area has plenty of room and the rest of the shed dou­bles as a farm work­shop.

The prop­erty is wa­tered by six good-sized dams and a fresh­wa­ter well equipped with a wind­mill that has ac­tu­ally sup­plied do­mes­tic wa­ter when needed.

Taste­ful ren­o­va­tions to the home have cre­ated a mod­ern, spa­cious fam­ily dwelling of 265sqm.

This home con­sists of four bed­rooms and two bath­rooms, a mod­ern kitchen and fam­ily area, of­fice and 90sqm out­door en­ter­tain­ing area.

The prop­erty is leased for three years and pro­vides a re­turn on in­vest­ment of just over $64,000 a year.
