'LITTLEMERE' - AN HISTORIC BOYNE VALLEY PROPERTY

Calliope Real Estate is proud to offer "Littlemere", Ubobo, Boyne Valley for sale. Being offered to the market for the first time in over 98 years due to ill-health, this property is a prime riverfront block.

The property is located approx. 5km from Ubobo Township and approx. 53km SW of Calliope, approx. 69km SW of Gladstone and 77km NE of Monto. Services include power, phone, mail service and schools available. The property has easy access to the Saleyards at Monto, Miriam Vale and Gracemere and the meatworks at Rockhampton and Biloela.

The property is a prime parcel of land bounded on the eastern side to full length frontage to the Boyne River and the sealed Gladstone-Monto Road on the western side and comprises approximately 994acres in 4 titles (all freehold). The country can be described as flat to slightly undulating with good alluvial soils on the lower river flats, rising to fertile secondary flats. It is well grassed having been de-stocked since mid January.

Of the 994 acres, 260 acres of the property has been cultivated in past years. This includes approx 60 acres riverfront with 150mm underground mains. There is a further 50acres of riverfront which has been cultivated and 150acres secondary flats. Further country could be made available. The irrigated country is serviced underground mains from a concrete lined irrigation well equipped with a 25hp electric motor and 2.5 inch centrifugal pump.
A second pump on this bore is also used to pump water to a 2,000 gallon storage tank from which water is reticulated to numerous stock water paddock troughs around the property.
Note: For health and personal reasons the owners ceased to irrigate in 2003. At that time this bore was producing 14,000 GPH.
A second bore equipped with an electric motor and pump which pumps water to the house, garden etc, and 1,000 storage tank which supplies water to the stockyards. This bore also produces around 14,000 GPH. Further stock water is available from 2 Dams, seasonal holes in Spring Creek, and a permanent water hole in the Boyne River.

The property is improved with a comfortable 2 bedroom dwelling with 1 bathroom, kitchen/dining and lounge room. There is a 4 bay machinery shed with power, 40ft shipping container for storage, smaller older storage shed with power, pump house and garden sheds. A disused piggery and grain sheds provide additional storage.

There is a very good set of stock yards constructed with railway line posts and sawn timber rails, with drafting pound, calf branding facilities, Vet Crush with squeeze facility.
Loading ramp. Water troughs in yards and they are well shaded.

The property is boundary fenced with near new 4 barb steel post fencing and sub-divided into 5 main paddocks and smaller paddocks with lane ways to the yards. All fencing in good stock proof condition with some additional electric fencing.

Carrying Capacity: Owners estimate that they have consistently run 250 Breeders / 350 head mixed cattle over the years. Property is sold bare of livestock.

Plant and Equipment: An extensive list of Plant and Equipment is included in the sale, a full list of which is attached. While the Plant and Equipment has been well cared for in past years it is offered on an “ as is where is” basis.

The sale of "Littlemere" presents an opportunity to acquire an historic prime rural holding in the highly sought after, yet rarely traded Boyne Valley.
