DRIFTN-IN, a 129 hectare (319 acre) rural riverfront property, remains on the market after being passed in at an auction for $900,000 on Friday.
As a lease property through Seqwater, marketing agent Barry Quinn, Ray White Rural, said buyers could expect to pay half of what similar quality rural lifestyle properties sold for.
Located at Royston, 17km from Woodford, the property has 2.3km of frontage to the Stanley River, the Brisbane River’s main tributary. There is also a 1km frontage to Mary Smokes Creek. In addition, Lake Somerset is a short walk away.
The homestead is lovely 1920s Queenslander, which was renovated in 2000. There is also a one bedroom cottage is located away from the home for privacy.
The views are particularly impressive from the elevated position of the homestead and the cottage.
Striking Mount Archer hangs over the property to the south, with the Stanley River, the ranges of Conondale Range National Park and the distant Glasshouse Mountains to the north.
The majority of the farm is cleared, east facing, river flat grazing land.
Owner Marg Dahl said the pastures, without irrigation, could carry 80 to 100 cows and their calves year-round in most seasons.
There is a 20ha irrigation licence and riparian access for stock and domestic purposes.
Improvements include shaded timber cattle yards and a five bay shed.
Of special interest is Driftin-in’s three airstrips, and two large hangars.
