'Rosyth'

 

'Rosyth' at Borenore is the largest parcel of land within 15km of Orange on The Escort Way and is suited to either cattle, fat lamb, lucerne or horses. The district is well known for it's rich productive soils orginating from Mount Canobolas and the village of Borenore has a reputation for its wines, stone fruits and olives.

'Rosyth' has been running as a cattle operation for many years with great success carrying up to 120 cows and calves and is a first class farming enterprise.

'Rosyth' is 190.5 hectares (470.73 acres) and consists of a good balance of pastures both improved and natural on rich basalt soils over limestone with limestone crops. There are rich black soil creek flats along the Boree Creek of approximately 80 acres; up to 150 acres has been sown to improved pastures with ryegrass, phalaris and clovers, while the balance is suitable for cultivation. The topography ranges from gently undulating picturesque country with views towards Mount Canobolas to a sheltered valley where the Boree Creek provides double frontage. There are exceptional stands of shade timber of Yellowbox, Whitebox, Applebox and Gum providing shelter and shade for stock.

The property has been divided into 17 paddocks with a substanial laneway system offering excellent stock movement and management. The laneways can be closed off into four holding yards. All the fencing is in a good to excellent condition and the boundary is fully netted.

Water supply is excellent with double frontage to Boree Creek, an unnamed creek, several rainwater storage tanks, three dams and ten troughs. A bore that supplies water to the homestead garden and the troughs has a capacity of 7,200 litres per hour (1600 G/Hr) and is preset to pump at 4,050 litres per hour (900 G/Hr).

The homestead was built in 1926 and is a landmark feature of the Borenore district. The bricks of the original homestead were made on the property and the home has been designed for a country style living. In 1991 extensive renovations were completed on the homestead, and were sympathetically designed to blend in with the original architectural features of 13 foot ceilings and wide verandahs, making it a very impressive residence.

The home features four bedrooms, two bathrooms, three toilets, a combined lounge and dining area with an open fireplace, and a family room with a slow combustion heater. The farm style kitchen crafted in Tasmanian Blackwood has ample cupboard space, a pantry, a slate floor and a gas/electric Aga stove that completes the picture of a homely rural kitchen. The entry to the home is via a large vestibule foyer with parquetry flooring and a slow combustion heater here helps warm the centre of the home, while a reverse cycle air-conditioning services the other spaces.

Other features include a 60ft x 25ft fully enclosed, three bay, concrete floored machinery shed that has electricity connected; all steel cattle yards and sheep yards that are adjacent to the machinery shed; a single, double brick garage adjacent to the house and a disused one bedroom cottage 400m from the homestead that could be renovated and made liveable again.

There is Council approval available until December 2016 where the residence on 20 hectares can be subdivided from the remainder of the property.

'Rosyth' is an exceptional property with excellent production capabilities and is sure to generate a huge amount of interest.

Do not delay an inspection of this fantastic opportunity.
