The Riverview homestead is beautifully presented and will appeal to those looking for country living. The large homestead and swimming pool are located within a neat garden on the banks of the Broughton River.  

Location: The property access is via James Road, which in-turn comes off Dimond and Bus Roads approximately 15km from town. Riverview boundaries the Broughton River frontage for approximately 600metres and 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:

42.78ha (approx 105.7acres)

 The feature of Riverview is the generously proportioned Homestead located on the banks of the Broughton River.

The airconditioned, 4/5-bedroom, brick homestead is in a nicely elevated aspect overlooking the river, and swimming pool with the open-plan layout consisting of a large kitchen, dining and lounge area, the main bedroom overlooks the river, and the remaining bedrooms access a central hallway. The main bedroom has an ensuite whilst the remaining bedrooms are serviced by a large independent bathroom. On the western side of the house is a large office and laundry, a double carport and larger rumpus room. The home has tiled floors, the bedrooms are very large with built-in cupboards, and a neutral colour scheme runs throughout.

The construction consists of sandstone-coloured blocks and colour bond roof which is well maintained and in good condition. In keeping with the open plan living, country lifestyle and entertainment there is a spacious verandah adjoining the lounge and dining areas. Approximate floor area = House 450sqm + Carport & Rumpus Room 110sqm

Infrastructure: Well maintained infrastructure is a feature of Riverview.

Sheds:

There are two substantial sheds. The 3-bay shed nearest the homestead is used for vehicles, motorbikes, lawn mower and general storage. The largest of the sheds is 4-bay (24m x 12m), steel frame, wired for 3-phase power and used principally for machinery and workshop.

A third shed, previously used for commercial chicken/egg production is now used for general storage.

Cattle Yards:

A small set of portable panel yards, in very good condition, are located to the north of the homestead and include Crush and Loading ramp. The current owners use the property for steer fattening and as such have no requirement for branding cradle etc.

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:

Water, both domestic and livestock usage, is assured via a very good bore. The bore was drilled prior to the current owner’s acquisition of Riverview in 2009 and equipped shortly after with a Honda Firefighter pump. A mains powered Grunfos Submersible pump was installed in 2013.

Specs: Bore hole 20 metres deep. Pump operating from 18 metres. Water quality and quantity is good and supplies house, garden and livestock.

The property has an Irrigation Water License for 48 megalitres /year. Not currently in use.

Plant & Machinery: Contact Agent

Furniture: Some furniture included – Contact Agent

Carrying capacity:

No livestock are included in the sale. Sustainable carrying capacity should be approximately 10-20 adult equivalents (AE) depending on season.
