When a property has only been traded once since settlement, you immediately know it is a great place to live.
“Somerleyton” is an immaculate country retreat just 5 minutes from Grafton and set on 110 fertile, alluvial acres.
Positioned next to the Alumy Creek Reserve with views across the flats to the surrounding farmland, the 1920’s house stands proudly amongst established country garden and mature trees.
Renovated and extended to suit modern country living while maintaining its original design, the polished hardwood floors, high ceilings and large rooms are featured throughout the home.
There is also a semi-detatched flat which could suit visiting relatives, or would make the perfect spot for an artist’s studio or B&B accomodation.
Graze your cattle on some of the most productive paddocks in the Clarence Valley, with the option of growing forage crops to help boost your steers to sale topping weights.
In flood times, the farm is blessed.
A long flood-free section runs across the property and over 50% of the farm as well as the house and infrastructure remain out of the reaches of even the biggest flood events – meaning you only need to open a couple of gates to get the herd to safety.
Summer afternoons of cricket can be enjoyed on the well maintained oval next door or if a cool drink on the verandah is your fancy, a garden barbecue with friends under the dappled shade trees is sure to hit the spot.
In winter, cosy up around the wood fire with a good book or get out on the tractor and plant your oats and rye.

A grand facade overlooking the river opens into a spiralled wooden staircase dividing the large kitchen and dining rooms from a huge family lounge with open fire, built-in hardwood bar and beautiful bay window overlooking the water.
Work from home in the seperate office or be the envy of any zoom meeting in the magnificent octagonal entertainment area overlooking the pool, river and paddocks depending on where you point your laptop.

All bedrooms feature built-in robes and plenty of space with a family bathroom also servicing the second-floor.
Immaculate gardens and lawns surround the home which is all built on a flood-free mound 2.3m higher than the Grafton levy wall.
While the property is set on the alluvial floodplain of the Clarence and benefits from centuries of deposited top soil, there is no chancing the house to any such risk.
Previously managed as an olive grove with 980 trees, the property is now converted back to beef cattle grazing and has also been used to grow lucerne and sudan grass forage crops.
Town water to the paddocks is separately metered allowing easy agistment options to the new owners should you not wish to run the farm yourself.
The school bus stops at the gate, Grafton CBD is only 8km down a quiet country lane and our magnificent beaches are easily accessed by crossing the river on the local ferry.

Invest in some of the best farmland in the Clarence Valley with this rare grazing gem at Southgate.
Boasting 264 acres with frontage to Alumy Creek, the condition on the cattle produced from this block prove the quality of the kikuyu, setaria, couch and paspalum based pastures.

There is currently a mixture of oats and rye planted for winter feed.
A 4.5ha irrigation license goes with the property and the associated infrastructure is in place to keep producing in dry times.
A real farmer’s farm, the sheds and old dairy add an ideal backdrop for the 1901 built federation home.
Raised on piers and built to last, the home has weathered everything thrown at it for more than a century. With some further love and care there’s no reason it won’t last a hundred more.
The two most expensive rooms of the house have been brought right up to scratch with complete renovations to the kitchen and bathroom.

Make no mistake, this is one of the best built homes in the district, right down to the smallest details.
It is not its fault it was built on arguably the best vantage point between The Gorge and Yamba.
Polished rose gum hardwood floorboards and enormously generous rooms are a feature, as are the natural granite benchtops and custom built fireplace.
No expense has been spared in finishing the home to the highest standard.
Even the laundry has a view that would sell an apartment in Vaucluse!
The vendors estimate a carrying capacity of 200 breeders and the pasture improvement work and sections of naturally blessed alluvial soils combine to make this block worthy of a serious grazier’s consideration.
Established rhodes grass, kangaroo grass and wynn cassia pasture mixes run to bahia and paspalum covered clearings and native grassed timber belts.
Good stands of native hardwood are present and ready to be cut, and previous selective harvesting by a true timber-man mean there are generations of logs to come off the ridges in years to come.
Forget business for a moment.
Fishing for Australian Bass and Eastern Cod should be high on the summer to-do list, as is a barbecue picnic with friends on your own stretch of river paradise.
Deep river pools run to shallow rapids in a canoeists dream run down to Copmanhurst where you can finish the paddle with a cold schooner at the Rest Point Hotel.
Good shedding, an old farm house in dilapidated condition and solid farm infrastructure including split post fencing and timber yards complete the package.

Totalling 61.5 acres of premium grazing country, the property already boasts a neat, three-bay colourbond shed with concrete floor, two sets of timber cattle yards and a horse shelter.
Town water is connected to troughs and sealed road frontage on two sides gives good access.
The property is approx five minutes drive from the river village of Ulmarra and just over 15 minutes from Grafton. It is also an easy run down to the pristine beaches at Minnie Water and Wooli.
Pastures include a variety of species with paspalum, kikuyu, bahia and couch which dominates the waterlogged channel edges and holes across the farm.

Contact our office for further details.
