JEFF and Trish Poole (pictured) are selling their picturesque hinterland property Middlemount located in the Woodford/Kilcoy district.
Situated in the highly productive Sandy Creek area, the 168 hectare (414 acre) property has lovely views of the nearby Conondale Ranges.
The Pooles have owned Middlemount since 2006, when they moved in from their former Longreach property Lillianfells.
The former dairy farm is described as having a perfect balance of cleared and well shaded country. More than half of Middlemount is developed undulating grazing country. Some 20ha is also described as suitable to horticulture.
The sheltered areas are also well grassed and suited for winter grazing. The paddocks were seeded with improved pasture in 2002. These established grasses include green panic, blue grass, kikuyu, wynn cassia, other native grasses and legumes.
Middlemount has an excellent carrying capacity for its size, consistently carrying more than 100 breeders plus progeny.
The property has been destocked for the last seven months in preparation for sale. As a result, the farm currently has abundant feed.
The property also has excellent water including 14 dams and a good bore with potable water. Middlemount is described as a “no stress water property”.
Improvements include a laneway system, cattle yards with crush and ramp, and sheds.
The comfortable timber homestead has three bedrooms, study and two bathrooms. The long and wide covered front deck is a stunning location for relaxing and family meals. There is also an additional outdoor entertaining area, with views over both the large main dam and farm and onto the unique peaks, spurs and striking escarpments of the surrounding Conondale Ranges.
The homestead area is surrounded by a wonderful combination of very mature trees, including a large stunning 80-year-old fig tree and numerous towering white gum trees, in addition to the large variety of colourful shrubs, rose gardens and mature fruit trees.
Middlemount will be auctioned by Ray White Rural in Brisbane on July 27.
