SEVERNVALE is a beautifully presented rural property. The property size, location and overall amenities offer the best of both worlds with substantial livestock income, a comfortable rural lifestyle and all located close to the conveniences of a major regional town.

Location:

With bitumen frontage to the Flinders Highway and only 15 km west from Charters Towers the property 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

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. 

School Bus:

The local Pentland-to-Charters Towers school bus currently runs daily past the SEVERNVALE turnoff.

Area & Tenure:   

Total Area 1222.77ha (3020 acres)

SEVERNVALE is comprised of one Grazing Homestead Perpetual Lease (GHPL) plus two small freehold lots.

Rainfall:

The district rainfall is approx 640mm/yr.

Country:

The property is comprised of three distinct land types …

  • Goldfields red and gravelly soils and Southern Cross Creek frontage – typically timbered with Moreton Bay, Paperbark, Bauhinia and Bloodwood and pastured with a healthy stand of buffel, Green Panic, Stylo and a small pondage area of Paragrass. A significant area of this has been previously cleared and well maintained.
  • Grey soils (majority of the property) – typically timbered with Narrowleaf & Silverleaf Ironbark, Box, Wattles and various shrubs and pastured with a heavy stand of Black Spear, White Spear, Seca & Verano Stylos. There are areas previously cleared throughout however regrowth has occurred in parts.
  • Small area of escarpment on the SE corner – typically timbered with Lancewood, Wattles and various shrubs and pastured with White Spear and Stylos.

The current owners practise rotational grazing and wet season spelling of paddocks and so there is a good body of pasture throughout. Erosion is minimal.

Timber clearing of approx 131ha has been legally inspected and conducted in 2002. A PMAV do not exist for this area. The vegetation is clearly marked Category X on the Veg Management Report.

Homestead:

The homestead is set in a neat lawn and shrub garden. Maintenance of both the house and garden are impeccable.

The fibro and timber homestead is air-conditioned throughout, has four bedrooms with built-in cupboards, one bathroom, two toilets, office and downstairs laundry and offers modern comfort and functionality with open plan kitchen, dining and lounge layout. The country lifestyle is enhanced by the full length, 3-metre wide, front veranda and rear patio area. Reverse cycle air-conditioning and ceiling fans plus louvered windows ensure cool summers and warm winter living.

Water:

The property is watered via two bores and two dams.

Spring Bore – Named due to a nearby spring. The original bore, under the windmill, has a submersible pump powered by solar panels pumping continuously into a 10000gal cement tank with overflow returning to the bore hole. The Mill is disconnected.

A backup hole was drilled 20.7.2001 to 46m. Tested 900gal/hr @ 46m and 600gal/hr @ 36m. Currently pumping 600gals/hr @ 18metres. This bore is equipped with a Jet Pump and powered by a petrol motor. Not used as backup only.

House bore– no drilling details available. Equipped with solar panels and submersible pump set at 22m (73ft) and pumping 500gals/hr to a 5000gal tank. Used only for stock water and house gardens, though can be directed to the house if required.

House Dam – a substantial dam and used for stock and house garden.

Railway Dam – approx 5m deep and regarded as permanent. There is a poly line running back to the house in the event of water shortage.

Rainwater Tanks – two 5000gal tank used only for household needs.

Infrastructure:

In addition to the homestead the property has, well maintained, infrastructure. This includes …

  • Vehicle Shed – older shed in good order, 4-bay, 9 x 12m, powered.
  • Machinery Shed – 3-bay, 2 bays concreted, 12 x 10m high clearance used for tractors, dozer and fully enclosed 4-doors.
  • Saddle Shed – older shed in good condition.
  • Cattle yards – steel and timber construction in good condition to work 2-300head, loading ramp, crush, head bail, hay shed, water troughs.
  • Fencing is both old and new and in good-to-fair condition (definitely stock-proof), 3 & 4-barb, mostly steel gates, small area along SE escarpment is natural boundary (no fence), three main paddocks plus smaller paddocks near yards and homestead area, square around Spring bore.

Cattle production:

Currently the property is being used for cattle production with both agistment of brahman breeders and the owners steer trading enterprise where young steers are purchased locally and grown to live export weights. The country exhibits very good annual weight gains.

Depending on season, the vendors stocking rate estimate is for approx 200-250 grown cattle.

Woody weed control has been a priority at SEVERNVALE for the 27 years of ownership. Regular attention to this issue, and sensible cattle stocking rates, will certainly see the property maintain the 90% woody weed control levels.

Livestock:

NIL included in the sale.

Plant & Machinery:

NIL is included in the sale.

Easement:

Severnvale Road provides access through the eastern side of the property for 5 neighbouring landholders. The road is a council-maintained gravel road and is not fenced thereby allowing SEVERNVALE access for grazing or other purposes.
