Chance to make ‘farm change’
Words by Kylie Knight

If you’ve ever dreamed of living and working on a farm, this 48acre property at Bracalba could be your chance.

The property at 500 McConnell Rd, Bracalba, has multiple spring-fed dams offering unlimited irrigation throughout the farm, a 240sqm Mancorp custom-built home, numerous work sheds and infrastructure practically making this a "turn key ready" farm in a private and prime position.

It has been listed with Richardson and Wrench Caboolture Principal Scott Lachmund who says the existing infrastructure and location means the property suits many possible uses including horticultural crops, agri-tourism, or would suit a horse lover.

“The majority of the land is pasture improved with a very gentle slope allowing unmatched potential for many additional cropping opportunities. In addition to this, you will enjoy the tranquility of the mature mixed hardwood forest with its undergrowth of native species that envelopes towards the rear of the land,” he says.

The home has three bedrooms, three bathrooms and accommodation for nine cars.

The large main bedroom has an ensuite with a large bath, spacious shower, toilet, vanity and walk-in wardrobe.

The home has a neat and tidy kitchen with ample bench and cupboard space, gas cooking and dishwasher, and overlooks a huge open-plan tiled living area with built-in shelves and cabinetry. This area opens out to a private outdoor patio and beautiful gardens.

There is a near-new electric hot water system, 10,000 Gallon rainwater tank to supply the home and a separate 9x6m powered, Colorbond shed for vehicle and other household storage close to the home.

Farm-ready property

The farm has two large sheds, one powered and set up as a processing shed, the other featuring a workshop area with high vehicle access and an attached carport ideal for parking large machinery. Until recently, these were used for the processing of coffee.

Three Phase power has been connected to the property.

“Arguably the most important feature is the fact that the entire property is extremely well-irrigated by multiple spring fed dams and a surplus of irrigation points strategically installed all over the property providing unlimited irrigation 365 days a year. Water will never be a concern here,” Scott says.

“It’s frost free and flood free, with all-weather access to the property.”

There’s a separate ASCO ablution facility providing separate shower and toilet separate to the home.

Other features include mature mango trees planted by the original settlers in 1906, the Australian National Trail Network (State Forest) borders the southern boundary and there is potential for a second home site with spectacular views of the D’Aguilar Range.

The location is within 10 minutes of Wamuran or 15 minutes to Woodford, with shopping, educational, medical, and rural supplies on hand.

The property will be open for inspection on Saturday, August 27 from 11.30am-noon.
