"Isla"-'Tenterfield's Iconic Isla'
Property ID 1999230Comprising 1,318ha or (3,412.5ac) freehold and boasting 40 titles "Isla"is predominately undulating, selectively cleared, blue granite grazing country. Whilst mostly open "Isla" has stands of Box, Apple gum, Stringy Bark and gum providing shelter for livestock amidst its sheltered hills and valleys.
The well maintained "Isla" homestead is set amongst established country gardens and is both comfortable and charismatic. Whilst the homestead was originally constructed in the late 1800's significant renovations have transformed the home into a comfortable and stately family residence that boasts a large country kitchen, formal lounge and dining area, 3 bedrooms, and a wonderful sunroom. Located close to the Homestead, in the tradition of a working station, are numerous sheds, a cottage, the historic barn, which through time has hosted the occasional family wedding and family functions. An additional 2 bedroom guest accommodation is included within the garden area.
Significant areas of "Isla" have been contoured and grow a variety of native pastures which have been enhanced by regular fertilizer applications. Both the easy topography and contouring may provide opportunities for increased production through the improvement of pasture species or cropping.
1050mm or 42 inches of reliable rainfall combined with abundant running water provided by three creeks and numerous spring fed and catchment dams provide year round easy watering for livestock. Shelter, ample and easy watering points are the key to the success that "Isla" has enjoyed allowing it to turn off award winning weaners year in year out.
Boundary and internal fencing is in mostly good repair and a functional paddock layout has stood the test of time. Well shaded timber cattle yards include a covered vet crush and calf cradle and are capable of working 400 head of cattle.
Held by generations of the Jeffrey family "Isla" is highly regarded in the northern New England due to both its scale and production. Seldom does the opportunity present itself where properties of this significance become available in this keenly sought area. Whilst the decision to sell "Isla" has been a difficult one our vendors are keen to sell to allow for their pending retirement.
