Established cattle, cropping operation at Forbes

THIS 113.48ha (280-acre) irrigation property, which has a 500ML water entitlement and is only 10km from Forbes, is a pretty special find these days.

The home has been sited on this property with great care.

From the dining room table you look out to the south over the majority of the farm. The house is orientated with a north-easterly aspect to capture the best winter sunshine and relief from the summer heat.

There is no shortage of water to look after the garden and its trees as there is a domestic bore at the house.

In addition to the bore there are several rainwater tanks collecting water from all the available roof areas on the sheds and house.

“Rodwell” has been owned by the Schofield family for the past 30 years. For the majority of that time they ran cattle, supported by some cropping and fodder production.

Improvements on the property include a large machinery seed and lock-up workshop with partial concrete floor and skillion roofed hay/machinery space, and a two-stand woolshed (not equipped).

Shelter for livestock is provided by a centrally located stand of pine trees accessible to four of the nine main paddocks. The other paddocks have established tree plantings.

“Rodwell” could be yours to move in on January 25. It will be auctioned on December 14 unless it is sold prior to the auction.
