Two adjoining Mallee Highway properties near Lameroo – Kramona and Huonclare-Clarrie’s – are for sale with a total of 6223 hectares (1562 acres).
Located about three kilometres from the Southern Mallee town of Lameroo, the Kramona property is 333.87ha with Huonclare-Clarrie’s being 298.26ha.
Situated in a 380-millimetre rainfall district, both properties have excellent quality underground water, with a test showing 814 parts per million.
There are bores equipped with submersibles and tanks on both properties, and an 11,610-kilolitre water licence can be negotiated.
Kramona has a three-bedroom timber framed home set in lawn and expansive vegetable garden surrounds, a garage and workshop, a three-stand shearing shed, and solid steel and mesh yards with ramp, sheep and lamb feed-lot pens, and an old piggery, and silos.
The adjoining Huonclare-Clarrie’s has three sheds – a large 30-metre x 9m x 4.5m implement shed, a 30m x 9m x 3.6m fully enclosed implement shed, and an 18m x 9m x 3m lockable workshop and storage shed, as well as an old derelict home.
The conservatively farmed properties have been run as a Merino sheep breeding, prime lamb, cropping and hay enterprise with a good medic clover base.
The sale of these properties provides ideal opportunities to acquire add-on holdings in the highly-regarded district known for producing good early feed that grows stock out well, along with cropping and hay from the strong medic based pastures.
The properties have been long-held by the two well-known Kramer and Schutz farming families, with the Schutz’s settling into the district in 1926.
The properties will be offered as two non-contingent lots with an open inspection on March 7 from 10am at the Kramona Homestead, other inspections are strictly by appointment only.
