Productive Kojonup farming lease
473ha (1168 acres) $1.3 million Landmark Harcourts David Jannings, 0429 332 245
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.
