“Page Hills” is located 15 km north east of Manilla with frontage to the Namoi River, positioned between renowned district properties “Wittagoona” and “East Hills”. Land area is 630.9 hectares or approximately 1,559 acres.
The topography is mostly open undulating grazing slopes to low hills, being approximately 50% arable and comprising clay loam to basalt derivative soils. Dominant timber species is White Box, Yellow Box and Gum. Carrying capacity is estimated at 180 to 200 cows plus progeny.
“Page Hills” is very well watered from approximately 3 km frontage to the permanent Namoi River, troughs and dams. The river is equipped with a near new 7hp Yanmar diesel powered mono pump that supplies a series of header tanks throughout the property with total storage of over 250,000 litres, gravity feeding to 19 troughs via 50mm poly piping. Every paddock has access to a trough with the exception of a small fenced out area of native bushland.
A more than handy inclusion is the 21 ML Namoi River irrigation licence, providing potential for irrigation development, and a 5 ML Namoi River stock & domestic licence.
The property is fenced into 17 main grazing paddocks, in addition to 7 smaller holding paddocks currently utilised for horses. Fencing is all steel and ranges from netting to ringlock or plain/barb wires, presenting in good order overall.
“Page Hills” does not have a permanent residence but benefits from a building entitlement. Current owners have already constructed a concrete slab for a DA approved five bedroom residence, situated on an elevated site offering northerly aspect and panoramic views across the property and surrounding district. Building plans can be provided upon request.
Existing improvements include the following:-
- 18m x 9m fully enclosed colorbond shed with height of 4.2 metres, concrete slab floor, mezzanine level and 45,000 litres of rainwater storage;
- 10 kW solar system with battery storage;
- Sand arena with nearby round yard and portable stables (negotiable);
- Steel cattle yards with 300 head capacity, including loading ramp, covered crush, eight main yards and drafting pound.
“Page Hills” contains all the qualities that an astute purchaser seeks in a grazing property:- productive, well balanced country with further development potential, excellent water supply and well maintained fencing. Throw into the mix the river frontage and building entitlement and the lifestyle opportunities are endless.
