Perfect blend of lifestyle and large scale production
580 Boundary Creek Rd Nymboida, NSW 2460
Lifestyle meets production on this beautiful cell-grazing property situated on the pristine Nymboida River in Northern NSW.
Boasting 1470 acres of naturally managed and improved river frontage, the property rises to a timbered ridge with the homestead set safely above flood levels and overlooking Nymboida village itself.
The current owners estimate the property can carry 200 breeders and with further pasture improvement the country certainly has the potential to boost that head count.
Divided into 45 paddocks, all watered by either plumbed troughs or permanent dams, the natural management practices employed thus far have yielded strong cattle production figures and improved the river frontage.
The Nymboida itself is undoubtedly the highlight of the property.
Calm pools funnel into narrower rapids, and the old hydro-electric station weir is also located on the property. It really offers something for all forms of lifestyle pursuits.
Platypus can be seen swimming in the crystal pools and the occasional explosion of the protected Eastern Cod feeding on the surface is something that can be experienced right along the length of the 6km frontage. Fishing, canoeing, kayaking and swimming are all favourite summer pursuits and the tourism potential of the block remains as yet untapped.
Brilliant cabin or home sites are dotted throughout the length of the frontage and the property would lend itself beautifully to being built into a thriving farm-stay operation that would further enhance returns and diversify the farm income for any purchaser that way inclined.
“Redbank” consists of 13 portions and totals 595.29 hectares. It is set at the end of Boundary Creek Road and directly opposite Nymboida village and the Nymboida Coaching Station.
The timbered ridge that rises away from the river-bends is covered with prime examples of many of the North Coast’s best timber species.
Huge Tallowoods, Spotted Gums, White Mahogany, Grey Gum and Brush Box are all present and have been only selectively harvested in keeping with the current vendors’ desire to create a prime example of natural resources balanced with profitable farm land.
Northern Rivers Landcare recognised the vendors with the Sustainable Farming Award in 2013 for their management practices on the property and the contribution their restoration work has made to the health of the waterway.
The homestead is a character-filled country home that offers comfortable farm living and brilliant glimpses of the river below.
Creative mosaics on the verandah and in the guest bathroom hint at the brilliant native flora and fauna to be found living on the property or in the river.
A huge solar panel system totalling 8kwh and feeding back to the grid ensures the home more than covers its energy footprint.
Currently set out as a two-bedroom layout with two-bed sleepout, there are other configurations which would allow a larger family to move straight in and feel comfortable.
Improvements include a great set of cattle yards with covered crush and vet areas, a large lock-up shed and the aforementioned separate sleep-out that the owners have a hard time kicking the guests out of.
If you have ever dreamt of running a working property alongside a high potential farm stay operation, then this property is one to get excited about.
