A Quality Rural Lifestyle Holding

Every now and then, I come across a quality rural property that just cries out for a little reinvigoration.

“Barkala”, at Kellys Plains, is one of these.

Instead of buying a bare block of land and building, “Barkala” is an established rural lifestyle property priced to allow new owners to modernise it without fear of over-capitalising.

The solid 4-bedroom brick veneer home was built in 1970 with cypress flooring, large bedrooms, two bathrooms, kitchen, breakfast room and a large lounge room that leads out to the garden.

With a 50 year-old home comes mature trees; an avenue of plane trees leads to the homestead; elms and conifers are among the species populating the garden. Then there’s the mature windbreaks to block the westerlies.

With 24 hectares of red basalt soil, “Barkala” makes for a productive rural lifestyle property within 10 minutes of the City of Armidale.

There are cattle yards, a fantastic concrete-floored machinery shed and workshop, a hayshed and a decommissioned woolshed. Water security is provided by a pump on nearby Saumarez Creek, accessed by way of an easement.

Owned by the vendors since the 1960’s, before the house was built, “Barkala” is a quality holding that is set to go as is, but is equally ready to be reinvigorated. Upon inspection, I’m sure you’ll agree it is worthy of it.

“Barkala” has been SOLD by Graham MacDougall.
