FOR SALE: Why waterfront farm could be Mary's most unique
IN AN era where prime Maryborough farms are being turned into logging reserves or snapped up by macadamia growers, another unique listing is still up for grabs.
The long-established Bidwell farm, on the banks of Tinana Creek, has a price tag of $1.6million.
For the same price as a middle-of-the road home in Sydney, the 43-acre turf farm at 240 Langer Rd generates a 20 per cent return.
The farm has been on the market since May 1, 2018.
Complete with a three-bedroom one-bathroom home, the property last sold in November 2007 for $1,220,000.
Listing agent, PRDnationwide Maryborough's Tony Nioa, said the tranquil park-like surrounds offered both lifestyle and income for people looking for a 'tree change'.
"This is ideal for a couple looking to slow down, ditch the city life, and embrace the rural life style," he said.
"Wide Bay Turf is a well-known business supplier with existing clientele in place.
"This is one of the most consistent producers of quality turf in South East Queensland."
All plant and machinery come with the purchase as well as a 1000 Mega litre irrigation licence and two machinery sheds.
The renovated home features polished floor boards, split system air-conditioning an a wide entertainment veranda overlooking Tinana Creek.
The fully-fenced yard includes established gardens with fire pit and vegetable gardens.
"This is an idyllic location to live and work, or just sit and enjoy the views," Mr Nioa said.
"And it is only eight minutes from Maryborough CBD."
