"The Island" 338 East Blowering Road, Jones Bridge is surrounded by the Tumut River on three sides, while the Tumut River "wash" dissects the property in half.

The property is an outstanding "fodder factory" with excellent green feed covering "The Island". Made up principally of kikuyu and native grasses, the opportunity to grass feed cattle is available all year round.

There is also an irrigation opportunity with a pump and two travelling irrigators included in the sale, while there is a 172-megalitre general security water allocation on offer to the successful purchaser, separate from the land title (in two titles, of 220 acres and 40 acres).

Improvements include adequate steel cattle yards located adjacent the original dairy facility and home.

Held in the one family for over 60 years, the property is being sold due to the retirement of the owner.
