Enjoy the seclusion of this Barraba lifestyle grazing property
“Limerick” is situated about 37 kilometres west of Barraba, in northern New South Wales.
887.2 hectares ( 2,192 acres)
Lay of the Land:
As you approach “Limerick”, you cross the Horton River then have the property reveal itself as you reach the small rise ahead of you. “Limerick” is mostly undulating grazing country, with a couple spectacular, tight ravines complete with seasonal waterfalls. While most of the property lies between 700 and 926 metres above sea level, the floors of these ravines are closer to 550m.
Soil type is predominately trapsoil, with a small area of basalt. Native tree species include box, kurrajong and stringy bark.
Existing pastures are native, and include native clovers. It is estimated that about 40% of the property is able to be sown by direct drill if required. Current livestock carrying is estimated at 2,000 dse.
Water assets include 3 dams plus natural freshwater waterholes and springs. The is a well near the woolshed plus 5 water tanks – 1 at the house, 2 at the shed, 2 on a hill.
A public road runs to the property. An old house, with phone connected, sits atop a central ridge. Views are 360°.
Nearby the house, on the other side of the road, is an older style set of cattle yards. Whilst being a bit long in the tooth, these yards do function and are located for easy access.
A 415m² woolshed with 2 stands (1 in operation) has a small set of steel sheep yards attached.
There is also a generator shed nearby.
For the enthusiasts or for spreading super, a grass airstrip, about 560m in length, is shared with the northern neighbour.
Natural Beauty & Seclusion:
In addition to the ability to grazing stock, “Limerick” makes for a wonderful hideaway spot. With views from nearly everywhere being remarkable; extending north across the famed Horton Valley, east and south. The ravines are very special, complete with palms and other plant species that one would expect to find somewhere more tropical than Barraba.
Because the property joins the Horton Falls National Park, you have easy access to this spectacular natural attraction.
Limerick is a special place. Situated high above the surrounding grazing lands in relative seclusion, it may suit someone starting out farming, winding back or indeed looking to establish a retreat with absolute privacy. It is a unique property.
