"Brambletye" A Diverse Agricultural Enterprise
Brambletye comprises approximately 4,158 hectares or 10,275 acres of diverse farmland 45 minutes from the Launceston CBD. Ranging from fertile river flats and productive alluvial cropping land to magnificent dolerite open run country (suitable for growing some of Tasmania's best superfine wool). The property is currently a mixed farming operation including sheep, cattle, dryland and irrigated cropping. The cropping land is all under centre pivot irrigation (all 3 phase). The stately 8 bedroom homestead (circa 1830 and 1900) is privately located on a rise overlooking the South Esk River and farmlands. A feature of this homestead includes the Billiard Room with full sized antique billiard table in excellent condition (included in chattels). The sweeping lawns create a sense of space and privacy. Currently the Brambletye Homestead is operating as luxury accommodation for trout anglers and those wanting to escape the city. There are 3 farm cottages, a 4 stand shearing shed (capacity: 1,000 wool sheep), shearers quarters and machinery sheds with 3 phase power. Sheep and cattle yards and 200 tonnes of standing grain storage compliment the property. 200 hectares are currently under centre pivot irrigation with an additional 180 hectares of irrigation potential. The property holds a historic 112ML summer take water licence (surety 5) and a 337ML bore licence from 3 bores positioned across the property. A Property Management Plan and Farm Water Access Plan have been completed and are available to interested parties upon inspection. A further 841ML of water storage in the Milford dam is available for lease. This surety 6 winter take water is stored for summer delivery between the 1st November and the 30th April on an annual basis. A full information memorandum is available to clients upon inspection. Livestock and machinery will be available for purchase.
The sale of adjoining Glen Esk & Avon Park presents a rare and blue-chip opportunity to secure almost 15,000 acres and a combined South Esk River frontage of approximately 11km, along with huge flexibility for transfer of water between properties and the convenience of a location easily commuted to Launceston and nearby regional centre's for schools and services. Inspections are strictly by appointment only.
