Located south of Wagga, "Pachmarhi" features 872 acres of affordable well-watered farming and grazing country, and 530 acres of pristine woodlands ideal for recreational pursuits.
The property is named for a hill station located in the Hoshangabad district in the Satpura range valley in central India, where the vendor's grandfather was stationed in World War II.
At 1402 acres in total across four titles, "Pachmarhi" is in the Big Springs district, 27km south of Wagga and 40 kilometres from the Livestock Marketing Centre at Bomen.
It is for sale by negotiation, with offers in the vicinity of $1.85 million.
The property comprises 872 acres of farming and grazing country, coupled with a paddock that has 530 acres of pristine woodland that runs to the western boundary.
With this combination of farming and grazing country, and the woodlands adjoining the Livingstone National Park on the southern boundary, there will be plenty of farming, rural lifestyle and recreational opportunities for the new owners.
There is an easterly aspect, with flat to undulating open improved country rising to native country and a wooded ridgeline at 400M, with panoramic north eastern views to Mt Flakney. Remnant native vegetation includes yellow, grey and white box, kurrajong, Blakely's red gum, stringy bark and white cyprus.
The north-facing residence is of pise and brick construction - the original pise section is about 100 years old and the home was further extended in the mid 1980s.
The home has four bedrooms, one bathroom, an office, multiple living spaces, electric cooking, slow combustion heating and open fireplaces.
The home is set in a low maintenance garden with lawn and mature trees. Within the garden is a single vehicle garage.
Currently a mixed farming enterprise on improved pastures of phalaris, rye and clover with native grasses and cereals, there is a good body of feed and some amazing stands of arrow leaf clover.
The property is fenced to 11 main paddocks with smaller paddocks around the infrastructure.
Farming infrastructure includes a three-bay steel machinery/hay shed with high clearance, a set of basic sheep yards, two rainwater tanks with 45,000L storage and two 55-tonne Kotzur silos.
In a 645mm rainfall district, there are multiple dams, a well and an unequipped stock and domestic bore, with water at 80m down to 126m, sunk in March 2020.
