This property suits those looking for a well set up acreage property with a quiet rural lifestyle just minutes from town.

Location: Alfred Downs offers a very private lifestyle being in a ‘bush location’ 2 km off the Flinders Highway and just 3.5km west of the Pentland Township. The local township supports a population of 300 people and outlying cattle stations, a Police Station, Primary School, General Store, Hotel, Caravan Park, and Mechanic & Service Station. There is a daily school bus service which takes children the 105 km to Charters Towers and its secondary schools. Charters Towers is a regional town with a population of approx 9000 people. Schooling, both primary and secondary, are a feature of the Charters Towers community with the town boasting three Private Schools, the State High School and three State Primary Schools. Charters Towers is an historic city established in the gold rush of the 1880’s and still services the large Mining and Grazing industries. Townsville is a vibrant city of approx 200,000 people with diverse industry and opportunity for employment, business and higher education.

Area & Tenure: Freehold, 31.78ha (78.5ac), Lot 1 MPH 21362 & Lot 1-2 MPH 555, Parish of Pentland. A verbal agreement allows for the use of some additional, adjoining, Crown Land (approx 25acres) with double frontage to Betts Creek.

Country: The property is slightly undulating and lightly timbered with Ironbark, Bloodwood and Cabbage Gum trees and pastured with well-established Stylo, Urachloa, Indian Couch and native Blue Grass, Black Spear grasses. Betts Creek, a small seasonal creek, meanders along the western boundary of the property and offers quality grazing.

Improvements: There are two residences located on the banks of Betts Creek and surrounded by substantial attractive gardens.The main house has three bedrooms, kitchen, lounge, dining, bathroom, toilet and laundry and a large outdoor covered patio. The cottage has two bedrooms, bathroom, toilet, kitchenette and living room.

There is a large two bay shed (2 vehicle parking), loading ramp, rainwater tank, and established fruit trees and gardens, chook pen and town water. There are two main paddocks and two smaller paddocks which are all goat fenced. There are two bores, and a dam, a set of old timber yards with steel loading ramp and head bale.

Water:Both the houses and gardens are connected to town water and, adjacent the house is a 5000lt rainwater tank. The yard bore is equipped with 240v Genset and Submersible pump and supplies good quality water at 200gals/hr to a tank and three troughs. A second bore is equipped with a jet pump and rated at approx 200gla/hr, but is genuinely surplus to requirements so has not been used for some years. Additionally there is also a windmill which pumps from a spear in the creek bank….needs buckets replacing and also hasn’t been used it in a few years.

Livestock: Nil livestock included.
