“Pretoria” is situated in the Currububula / Piallaway district, adjoining the renowned Currububula Station and centrally located between Tamworth, Gunnedah and Quirindi.
The property comprises creek flats to gently sloping country, providing approximately 200 acres of open and part arable grazing, rising to timbered mountain. Soils are heavy chocolate to red on the lower slopes, ideal for cropping or pasture improvement. The hills are perfect for sheltered grazing in the winter, but also suited to recreational activities.
Water is provided by an equipped electric well, dams and semi-permanent Washpool Creek.
Fencing is a feature of this property, having been recently subdivided to improve stock management. Boundary fencing is steel/barb/hingejoint and internal fencing is steel/barb/plain wires in ‘as new’ condition.
The property is improved with an early 1900’s cottage that has been renovated to a good standard. Accommodation includes two bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen, lounge room, office area, walk in pantry / store room and laundry. Features include polished floorboards throughout, split system air conditioning, slow combustion wood heater, timber slab breakfast bar, Canberra fuel stove plus conventional gas stove, ceiling fan and modern kitchen and bathroom. The cottage is surrounded by expansive covered timber deck with high table and servery attached to the kitchen, also providing covered car parking.
Stock facilities include an excellent set of steel cattle yards with loading ramp, crush, holding pens, forcing yard and drafting pound.
