Round Mountain, Lower Southgate
237 Round Mountain Road, Lower Southgate NSW 2460
Grazing properties at Lower Southgate don’t get any better than this.
The district is highly regarded by cattlemen and cane farmers for its fertile and deep alluvial soil profile which sustains tremendous plant and livestock growth rates.
Plentiful rainfall and a high water table assure permanent water security even in the harshest of droughts, and the properties on this stretch of the Clarence Valley are often held by farming families for generations.
The only problems arise when the Clarence River overflows its banks and inundates the delta.
It is in this regard that “Round Mountain” is the goose that lays the golden egg.
Named after its rare geographic feature, the property rises to approximately 75 acres of flood-free hill – large enough to accomodate the full suite of farm infrastructure, and the livestock too.
Totalling approximately 467 freehold acres, plus an associated grazing licence of 23 acres, the property has the scale to be a commercially viable operation.
And in flood times where other farmers scramble to truck their cattle off-farm, the owners of Round Mountain need only to open the gate and push the herd to safety.
Then it’s time to crack a bottle of red and watch the water flow past from the immaculately renovated homestead.
Just minutes from the village of Lawrence and only 35 mins to world famous surfing and fishing at Yamba, there is more to this property than just a comfortable place to run your 180 breeders.
Shoot up the highway to the Gold Coast (only 2.5 hours away) for a day of shopping or a weekend getaway. Better still, invite your friends and family, fire up the barbecue and enjoy a summer afternoon by the immaculate in-ground pool.
There are no comparisons to make in regards to how naturally blessed this property is, and there are very few that stack up in terms of man-made improvements.
Immaculate fences, a system of drains, and excellent shedding make this property the ideal place to retire to without the need to do all the hard yards.
The homestead is also a feature.
Cathedral like ceilings surprise from the moment you cross the threshold and the extended outdoor living space immediately draws your eye through to the pool and unrivalled views across the paddocks beyond.
This is a comfortable and well-appointed country residence in keeping with the high standard of the rest of the property.
Bordered by the Everlasting Swamp National Park, the farm is a bird-watcher’s paradise. Water birds migrate through the area at different stages of the year and many end up staying permanently for the good supply of food, habitat and fresh water.
