Clare’s Public Auction for Local Farm ‘Beauty’ | Queensland country life


Three boreholes and seven dams are supplying water for the Clare district property, Hill View, which will be auctioned next month.

Brought to you by Donald and Kym Martin, Hillview is 14 kilometers northeast of Clare in the central north.

Hillview has been operated as a flexible business on its 735.9 hectares (1,818 acres) with a mix of businesses including broad cultivation, hay production and cattle grazing.

Hill View will be offered as a whole and if not sold then in three contingent lots – Hill View 375ha (927ac), Scotts (258.5ha, 639ac) and Blights (102ha, 252ac).

Again, agents are reluctant to suggest an expected sale price given the strong demand for farmland in the area over the past year in particular.

The auction will take place on Thursday March 17 at noon at the Valleys Lifestyle Centre, Clare.

The property’s annual rainfall over the past decade is 565 mm.

Daniel Schell of Ray White said it was a “beauty” of farmhouse with rich, fertile soils suitable for a farming business and grazing open hills with windbreaks.

The three bedroom farmhouse has a modern rear extension with two living rooms, elevated views from the veranda and a covered entertaining area.

The farm has a large concrete-floored shed with workshops.

It also has many grain silos.

Scotts also has an airstrip.

There is a three-stall shearing shed and steel sheepfolds.

Schell said the owners have adopted state-of-the-art agronomic practices, including variable-rate fertilizer application and controlled tillage.

‘Hillview is a much-loved property with gently rolling crop and grazing land set in some of the best and most reliable farmland in South Africa,’ he said.
