GERALD and Nancy Shannon’s historic 117 hectare (289 acre) Scenic Rim property Bremer View has sold prior to auction.
Located at Lower Mount Walker, the standout property boasts an circa-1890 homestead and is thought to be one of the original selections in the fertile Bremer Valley. The well positioned farm is less than an hour from the Brisbane CBD.
Bremer View is described as having very fertile black soils and there are large areas of river flats. There has been only 29 head of cattle grazed for the past two years,meaning there is an abundance of feed.
Water is supplied from five bores, a large dam, and numerous tanks and an 800m frontage to the Bremer River. There is a 4ha water licence from the river. The farm has three phase power, five sheds and steel stock yards with crush and loading ramp. There is also a mature orchard featuring orange, lemons, grapefruit and lime trees.
The gracious and welcoming five bedroom, three bathroom colonial homestead offers the charm of old pastoral traditions. This is a homestead with a very comfortable feel with the benefits of modern conveniences. It set in lovely mature gardens, lawns and trees including the 100 year old pepperina tree.
The views from the homestead and the vast majority of the farm are stunning. The nearby volcanic core of Mount Walker is striking but no more so than the spectacular mountain peaks, ranges and escarpments of the Main Range National Park.
Marketing agent Barry Quinn, Ray White Rural, said Bremer View had received 40 inspections during the four open farm days held on the property. The buyer was a Gold Coast professional.
The marketing of Bremer View was handled by Barry Quinn and Peter Douglas from Ray White Rural.
