Versatile properties like this are hard to find
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.
