The feature of Broughtonview Park is without doubt the large double storey homestead. The homestead is beautifully presented and situated within a shaded garden just right for entertaining friends and family or … simple quiet country living.

Location: Broughtonview Park is located approximately 15km south of Charters Towers (15mins drive) with Broughton River frontage for approximately 1.4kms. The short drive easily accesses all the services of a regional town, population 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. The school bus runs from the intersection of Bus & Dimond roads about 2km from the homestead.

Charters Towers is an historic city established in the gold rush of the 1880’s and still services the large Gold Mining and Grazing Industries. For cattleman, the weekly liveweight selling centre in Charters Towers, Live Export ex Townsville (130klm) and Townsville meatworks are all major attractions for this location. Townsville is a vibrant city of approx 200,000 with diverse industry and opportunity for employment, business and higher education.

Area & Tenure:

Freehold  64.2ha (approx 158.6acres)

The feature of Broughtonview Park is the generously proportioned Homestead located nearby the banks of the Broughton River.

The fully air-conditioned, 5-bedroom homestead has a nicely elevated aspect overlooking pastures toward the river, and the horse arena. The ground floor open-plan layout includes a large well-appointed kitchen, adjacent dining and lounge area with two large bedrooms, bathroom and toilet. Completing the ground floor is a large air- conditioned office (with built-in cupboards and filing cabinet). The larger open plan living area opens to the outside BBQ and dining areas for both living and entertaining. A staircase leads upstairs to three bedrooms, each with access to two large decks/verandas all overlooking the gardens, sheds, horse arena and paddocks.  All the upstairs bedrooms are serviced by a large independent bathroom and a separate toilet. The master bedroom has a very large walk-in robe.

The home has tiled floors, all bedrooms are large with built-in cupboards, living areas are tiled and bedrooms carpeted, the entire home is airconditioned with ceiling fans throughout. The construction consists of a steel frame, colour bond external walls and roof complimented by gyprock internal walls. The front and rear of the house has both ground-floor and upper-level verandas providing both shelter from the sun and additional outside living areas. Maintenance throughout is particularly good.

Car parking is located in the adjacent sheds and the garden is watered via an automatic pop-up sprinkler system set on timer. Complimentary sprinklers ensure that all vegetation is well kept.

Infrastructure: Well-maintained infrastructure is a feature of Broughtonview Park.

Sheds:

There a two substantial sheds. The 3-bay shed nearest the homestead is suitable of four vehicles whilst the lockable rear section is used as a workshop and storage for motorbikes, lawn mower and general storage.

The largest of the sheds is approx 12m wide x 18m deep, steel framed, enclosed on three sides and used principally for machinery.

Cattle Yards:  Nil

Horse stables and Arena:

The current owners are horse enthusiasts. Adjacent the sheds are purpose-built stables (2 covered, 2 open-air), tack room and a circular arena constructed of steel portable panels. To facilitate ‘cutting’ practise a significant quantity of sand has been dropped into the arena. The stables are watered via the house pressure pump.

Fencing:

The property is subdivided into 4 main paddocks (3-4 barb) for use with cattle. Previous ownership had a couple of very small paddocks used for chicken / egg production, but this project has long since been abandoned.

Country:

The property is comprised of fertile Goldfields red gravelly soils and some alluvial river frontage all lightly timbered with Paperbark, Oak, Ironbark and Bloodwood and pastured with Buffel, Indian Couch, Stylos, Urachloa and various native grasses.

The owners have applied both mechanical and chemical control of the woody weeds such as Rubbervine and Chinee Apple with considerable success … there is very few remaining plants. This is an ongoing programme, particularly adjacent the river frontage, but the results are evident.

Water:

Broughtonview Park is considered well-watered.

Water, both domestic and livestock usage, is assured via a very good spear in the Broughton River. The spear was positioned prior to the current owner’s acquisition of the property in 2018 and is equipped with an Onga centrifugal pump with timer. Both single and 3-phase mains power is available at the pump site. An unused replacement centrifugal pump is included in the sale.

Additionally the owners, prior to 2018, also positioned using a 20 tonne excavator, a 6inch PVC pipe with stainless steel screen in the river, adjacent the existing setup. This is suitable for use with a submersible pump but has not been required. Approximately 200metres from the house is a bore of unknown capacity … also never been used.

Shed water and livestock supply to troughs, stables etc is river water coming from tanks at the house. Garden watering and house supply (washing, showers etc) is river water, while drinking water is supplied via the rainwater tank to the kitchen only. Both supplies are facilitated by a pressure pumps (2) located at the house.
