RARELY available, but often sought after are these great rural properties located just off the coast close to Sarina Beach.
The sellers are selling due to health problem and age and are keen to see a result on December 10 at the auction of the property at the Sarina Beach Surf Club.
Originally from Clermont, John and Helen Ryder have developed these great properties over a 15-year period. There will be two superb adjoining properties going under the hammer.
The first lot of about 85ha (209ac) has a fantastic home of 450sqm under-roof that comprises too many features to list, but in brief: a four-bedroom, main bedroom with walk-in and ensuite, separate guest accommodation, two living areas, internal cold room, formal entrance, air-conditioning piped speaker system, automatic gate and much more. The magnificent home is situated to capture some of the best ocean views
The property is well pastured and has a 20mx10m powered shed with reinforced cement floor, dams, bores and is fenced into numerous paddocks.
The second lot comprises about 75ha (184ac) and the only thing missing is the home. It has a large set of cattle yards, improved pastures, fenced into paddocks, watered by dams and bores. It has two sheds, one connected to three-phase power.
The country is predominately fertile soils with all improved pastures. John and Helen sent Droughtmaster bullocks to the abattoir recently that dressed out at 330kg, with the majority being 2-tooth and 4-tooth a testament to the quality of the country.
Both these properties are just a stone's throw from Sarina's pristine beaches and boat ramps and about 7km to Sarina township that provides many services.
It is also ideally situated for anyone working in Mackay or the mines. If it's a fantastic country lifestyle you're after that provides for all the benefits of great coastal living, then these properties are for you.
