FIRST TIME ON THE MARKET!!
This 60 acre property described as timber ridges sits 30 metres above the base land along Emu Park Rockhampton Rd. The land slopes down to a flat along the western boundary ending at Palm Creek. This patch of fertile land was used for growing vegetables and has previously been used for livestock. There was also an orchid of lychees, mandarins and mangos, with some trees still existing where it was.
There is a substantial piece of flat land at the top of the block which has spectacular rural and ocean views and has predominately south easterly sea breezes which provide cool conditions in our humid summers, which would be the ideal spot to build your dream home. The power is already connected to the existing residence so this is a great advantage.
With 2 dams, 3 x 20,000lt and a 4000lt water tanks and a bore which is serviced by a jet pump, this property never runs out of water.
The all weather access road which was previously the old Emu Park railway line discontinued in the 1960s, continues on to the eastern boundary to Palm Creek. The property is only 12klms to Emu Park and 17klms to Yeppoon Central. A school bus runs past Whiteley Rd to Yeppoon.
There are 2 buildings on the block which the vendor resides in and are both of solid construction which suffered little damage by Cyclone Marcia. There are also a number of sheds on the top level used as workshops and garages.
A Fiat tractor and slasher in fair condition come with the sale of this property. The grass is slashed on 6 monthly intervals to minimise fire hazard. There are adequate exits from the property in the case of a bush fire which hasnt affected the property as yet.
The neighbours are typical country folk and band together in the case of an emergency like Cyclone Marcia.
The vendor has lived on this property happily since 1975 and will be sorry to leave but it is time to downsize and move into town for a restful retirement.
