Centrally located between Penola and Naracoorte in the tightly held precinct of Glenroy in the South-East of South Australia, the 194 hectare (480 acre) Rocky Castle has an exceptional ability to produce prime livestock and to finish store lambs.
Rocky Castle is an extremely aesthetically pleasing property, with large majestic healthy red gums scattered throughout a portion of the property, providing shelter, warmth and cool shade during the summer months.
With the high carrying capability, excellent fertiliser history and consistent strong soil types over the property, this opportunity is a rare occurrence to come on the market.
Recent fencing upgrades are completed, now in excellent condition, with the majority of the fence lines constructed of creo post, cyclone wire, double barb plus single hot wire.
Soils across the property vary from very healthy red gum country with dark brown loam over clay, to highly productive heavy grey sands over clay over limestone.
Four dwellings on the property present an opportunity to earn extra income as rentals from all of the houses.
Structural improvements include a machinery shed and workshop; a 30.5m by 34m shed with concrete floor and steel frame, powered, large service pit suitable for semi trailer; an adjoining lockable workshop, powered and concreted; and a drive through wash down bay at the rear (with septic).
The main house features five spacious bedrooms and three bathrooms.
It is a solid family home with a country style kitchen with an AGA oven and adjoining dining overlooking the garden and large gums.
The generous size lounge features panelled redgum walls (milled from timber off the property), and has an open fire place with stone surrounds.
There is also a large spa bath in the ensuite overlooking the garden.
Of the further three residences, one is currently rented and the remaining two are ideal for an extra income.
