Si­t­u­ated just 25 min­utes from Toowoomba, and 10 min­utes to Cam­booya, is the charm­ing Bem­boka farm.

Listed on our sis­ter site Farm Buy by El­ders Toowomba, Bem­boka is a 70-odd-hectare prop­erty blessed with dark soil flats, con­toured cul­ti­va­tion land and graz­ing basalt coun­try with coolabah, box and gum trees.

The prop­erty cur­rently crops 16ha of lablab bean and also houses cat­tle, mak­ing it a great mixed farm­ing prop­erty. The cur­rent own­ers have re­cently re-fenced the prop­erty, di­vid­ing it into seven pad­docks of var­i­ous sizes.

Ap­prox­i­mately 6ha of the farm is de­scribed as a nat­u­ral par­adise hill, which pro­vides ex­cel­lent pro­tec­tion from the win­ter west­erly winds.

In re­gards to fa­cil­i­ties, Bem­boka has them in spades, in­clud­ing steel and tim­ber cat­tle yards, which have nu­mer­ous pens, a race, crush and load­ing ramp.

Bem­boka also has bi­tu­men road frontage, three-phase power, school bus and mail ser­vice, as well as an ex­ten­sive bore/wa­ter and ir­ri­ga­tion setup.

The two bores – one elec­tric and one wind – pump wa­ter to two tanks, one hold­ing 45,500 litres and an­other hold­ing 22,000 litres. The farm also holds a pretty im­pres­sive 57-me­gal­itre ir­ri­ga­tion li­cence.

There are also two rain­wa­ter tanks on the prop­erty: one 22,000-litre tank at the hay shed and a 27,000-litre one ser­vic­ing the home­stead.

Other fa­cil­i­ties in­clude a three-sided 18m x 9m ma­chin­ery shed, a two-sided 21m x 14m ma­chin­ery hay shed, a 7m x 9m en­closed garage stor­age shed, and a three sided 4m x 7m stor­age shed.

In­side the clas­sic-style cham­fer­board home, with an orig­i­nal-style kitchen, three be­d­rooms and an of­fice which can act as a fourth sin­gle bed­room.

Fam­ily and for­mal eat­ing ar­eas are present, as well as a re­verse-cy­cle air-con­di­tioned lounge room for the sum­mer. Off the TV room is a cov­ered deck that en­joys sweep­ing ru­ral views. Im­prove­ments in­clude the ren­o­vated bath­room which has a van­ity, shower and toi­let. A sec­ond toi­let is ad­ja­cent to the laun­dry. The own­ers have also in­stalled a new-look tim­ber floor through­out the home to com­ple­ment the T&G tim­ber walls.

Prop­er­ties of such size and fea­tures are hard to come by, es­pe­cially at the cur­rent ask­ing price of $870,000.
