'Douglas Park' Puddledock Road, Armidale NSW
Approximately 160 acres only 10 minutes from historic Armidale, the cultural and administrative centre of New England with bitumen road access from Armidale to the front gate.
Originally built in 1890, the homestead exuberates the charm of pastoral traditions and, after a restoration in 1999, the benefits of modern conveniences. The spacious family home comprises 3 very spacious bedrooms, separate office, an enclosed verandah/sleep out and 3 separate bathrooms. The kitchen is a large country style design and features a walk in butlers pantry. The kitchen, dining and lounge rooms are an open plan design, in addition there is a separate formal lounge room. The North facing sunroom is a feature and great for entertaining.
The property is very well watered with a spring-fed dam and a bore that waters both the beautifully landscaped homestead gardens as well as water troughs located in each paddock. Roof water is captured from both the home and outbuildings providing ample domestic supply totaling approximately 27,500 gallons.
The outbuildings comprise a modern, lockable 2 bay colourbond shed complete with roller doors, garden shed plus other outbuildings including additional machinery sheds and garages. A quality set of all steel cattleyards complete with undercover vet crush.
The terrain is very gently undulating and the property is highly arable. The perennial pastures are well established and comprise long term perennial species. These high performance pastures provide the opportunity to fatten livestock off Douglas Park. The fencing, both internal and boundary, is in excellent condition, the majority having been renewed in recent years. There are 7 internal paddocks, in addition there is a central laneway system feeding livestock back to the cattle yards and holding paddocks.
'Douglas Park' features a highly desirable location and fantastic lifestyle opportunity. Executors instructions to sell provides the astute investor the only opportunity to secure it since the 1800's.
