Four local farming families have emerged from a sale process with a handy piece of highly regarded Clare regional property Campbell View.

Shawn and Louise Cadzow were said to be "absolutely thrilled" with the prices offered for their family's land at Washpool which is now in the process of settlement.



Prices offered for the four parcels even bettered the recent boom farm sale results in the region in a range offered from $16,000-$20,000 a hectare.

Daniel Schell from Ray White Rural said some of the land had been held within the Cadzow family name for five generations.

The sale of Campbell View was considered a rare opportunity to purchase farming land in this renowned and tightly held region.

Agents said they had received 11 "very strong" expression of interest submissions for the outstanding property.

The Washpool property, which takes in 459 hectares (1134 acres), is a first class mixed farm in the mid north of the state.

Campbell View is suitable for a multitude of farming uses.

Campbell View is located 14km north of Spalding or 23km south of Jamestown.

The farm offered productive agricultural land suited to a flexible enterprise mix including broadacre cropping, oil seeds, hay production and livestock.

Campbell View was offered as a whole and eventually sold in four contingent lots.

They were:

Lot 1 - Callaghans (68ha, 167ac)

Lot 2 - Home (133ha, 328ac).

Lot 3 - Fursts (79ha,195 ac).

Lot 4 - Clarks 179ha, 442.5 ac).

The farm offers the security of good water through SA mains plus a bore.

It had the added bonus of two homesteads, a large implement shed and plenty of other farm shedding.



The region receives an estimated average annual rainfall of between 425-475mm.

It also enjoys frontage to RM Williams Way.
