Lot 2, 909 New Country Marsh Road, TUNNACK


This well balanced property is approximately an hour from Hobart and only 15-20 minutes from the Midlands town of Oatlands.

The property has a total area of 188.7ha (466 acres) 12 titles. The 20ha approx. of marsh and 25ha approx. of heavier dolerite country provide excellent summer feed to balance the 113ha of pasture on healthy lighter country which is either flat or gently sloping. With its heavier country and its  628mm average rainfall the property is valuable as either a stand alone operation  or as an aid to  drought proofing  larger holdings in drier areas nearby. The 145ha approx. (358 acres)  of pasture on  arable land  is quite a large holding for the area and is presently de-stocked presenting a tempting bank of feed for those suffering from the dry spring.

The property is well watered with 12 waterholes including  2 central holes  with around 15ML storage between them. The property is subdivided into 17 main paddocks.

There is also 43ha approx. of native forest with saw log potential which also doubles as great shelter.
The house is a modest  yet well maintained 3 bedroom home which has been clad on the outside and has a renovated bathroom. Near the house is a 230sqm 2 stand shearing shed in very good condition and a functional 8 bay shed incorporating the workshop.  Near the hay paddocks there is a 10x11 metre barn and another which could be easily repaired.
