Premium Cattle Country in Prime Location

This very impressive property consisting of 539 acres is situated in one of the most sought after locations on the Dorrigo Plateau, "Paddys Plains" only a ten minute drive from the township of Dorrigo, with tar sealed road to the gate, also on the school bus route. This farm has been tightly held in the same family for almost fifty years, so to acquire it now would be something very special, retirement by the present owner is the reason this property is coming to the market at this time.
The property is made up of 3 titles, all lots having separate entrances from the sealed road. The top section of the country is flat to gently undulating with good pastures of Ryes & Kikuyu on Red Basalt soil, the property is divided into 24 paddocks with laneways, currently carrying 170 breeding cattle, plus calves & 6 bulls. The property has an eastern aspect with open grazing areas with a balance of timber areas of Bluegums & Red Cedar Trees + rain forest country. Abundance of water with the supply from the Bielsdown River where there is a diesel pump (with automatic timer), this pumps water to the 248,000 litre header/storage tank (with another 5 x 22000 litre tanks) connected to 27 troughs, also an equipped bore with a 5 meg license, steel cattle yards with covered crush, 24m x 15m storage shed/workshop with attached skillion for machinery.
The well maintained brick home features three bedrooms, lounge, sunroom, slow combustion wood fire, renovated kitchen, shower room,
There is another older dwelling and old dairy sheds + other farm sheds.

Dorrigo 1 Property Sales is well named as the Number 1 Real Estate in Dorrigo whether selling or purchasing property. We had great pleasure in getting to know Murray and Jane during the extensive lead up to, and successful sale of our property. Murray is impeccably honest, thoroughly professional and always willing to go the extra mile, such as dealing with the local council for us and even calling us from England while he and Jane were on holidays.

Above and beyond! Murray and Jane are a rarity in their industry; scrupulously honest, with an attention to detail and a commitment to match the right buyer for the right property. No coercion into unrealistic properties or prices, they truly listen to their customer’s needs, and then simply deliver. We felt safe in their hands with a challenging purchase, and we could see that they gave equal care and consideration to the vendor's particular set of needs. Skilled negotiators and true to their word, we can’t imagine going elsewhere with our Dorrigo property needs. Thanks Murray and Jane for helping us to find our perfect piece of Dorrigo paradise.

To whom it may be of some interest. Ah! Murray Slender and Jane Wells. How can I ring the bells of their wondrous weaving of life changing events. Let me count the ways. Firstly, under the guise of a pair of mild mannered property purveyors, they are really wizards in disguise. With an inherent skill to peer deeply into the dark depths of an innocent vendor, extracting the deepest held desires to 'MAKE A KILLING', and bringing the calm rationalisation of reality to bear, dashing such desires and - here is the amazing part.- honestly imparting to said vendor, what is the true reality of achievable results. This Much and No More is the mantra of this mysterious pair, and, perhaps surprisingly, their mystical pronouncements bear more than a small modicum of truth. Secondly, were they brought up in a circus? Their ability to juggle numerous events at one time borders on more than spooky. In this instance, casting two castles into the dimension of lost souls, and, at the same time, fishing a third castle out, to lay it at our feet all sparkling and glittering and totally irresistible. BUT, there's more. Nothing but nothing is unachievable for this mighty duo. This mighty juggling could well have exploded in our face, but the Slender wand was waved over this conundrum of events, and a spell was weaved that created possibility out of impossibility. And LO! In the fullness of time all things came to pass. Oh, we of little faith have now been converted to the true meaning of:- "Trust me, I am a true purveyor of the great art of Agency, while all around me fall to darkness'. These wizards can be truly trusted. Thirdly, their care never ceases. Having settled all the drama associated with our castles, this mighty wizard pair did not cast us into the darkness- no, they cleverly contrived for us to inhabit a cave nearby to them, so they can still cast their caring charms over us. If I gaze from my castle turret, I can feel the warmth of their protective gaze still lingering over us. When we come to quit this grand abode, I am sure that the Wizard Slender will once again be called upon to wave his wand over us and ensure we have a safe future. Of course, with such care there is always a price to pay, and for us this means becoming involved in certain ackane ceremonies that the Wizard Slender is involved in at a festive time. But, we partake willingly, because to cross such a mighty wizardly pair would court serious bolts of lightening and other dark events to cross our new threshold. Hold your friends close, but hold mighty wizards closer, even when you do trust them. Here endeth the lesson. Bill & Carolyn Baggett
