“The single storey house has been unoccupied for some time and is in need of complete renovation and rebuild.”

“There are a number of outbuildings adjacent to the house comprising of a two-span hayshed with lean-to and some block built out offices, as well as an attractive small paddock located beside the house. There is a well in the yard as well as a natural watercourse.”
