Adelaide, 11 April 2017 - A circa 200 hectare landholding in the heart of the Adelaide Hills has been listed for sale.
Located adjacent to Randell Road in Birdwood – a small town in the catchment area of the River Torrens – the property is well suited to accommodate a diverse range of uses, including cattle and prime lamb production, horticulture and viticulture.
Comprising three freehold titles, the property is currently utilised for irrigated and dryland grazing with further potential to diversifying to horticultural and viticultural pursuits.
CBRE’s Phil Schell said the property represented a premium opportunity to secure a property in one of the nation’s most coveted lifestyle regions.
“Located next door to the internationally acclaimed Barossa Valley wine region, this property offers the perfect mix of lifestyle and commercial benefits,” Mr Schell said.
“With a substantial water allocation, the property would support a large scale horticultural operation or grazing enterprise for cattle and sheep.”
The property, which benefits from a water entitlement of 174,642 kilolitres, includes irrigation infrastructure across 160 hectares, with pastures including ryegrass, clover varieties, brassicas, tall fescue and phalaris.
Located five kilometres from the Birdwood township and 55 kilometres from the Adelaide CBD, the property features towering red gum trees and offers picturesque views.
“We expect to receive strong interest from a wide range of industry specialists or someone looking for a viable commercial entry into the state’s rural sector, whilst still enjoying the lifestyle benefits of this world renowned region,” Mr Schell said.
Improvements include a three bedroom family home, two stand shearing shed, extensive farm shedding and new livestock yards.
The property is being offered for sale via Private Treaty.

The current investment landscape in Australia is driven by a range of factors, not least the 2019 federal election, and the view is that the result of the Wentworth by-election, a seat that has historically been monopolised by the Liberal Party, will be the foreshadowing of the federal outcome. The Australian equities market is experiencing volatility, with a 200 point drop last week in the S&P ASX index, the largest drop this year and potentially the result of sentiment surrounding geopolitical headwinds with the latest developments relating to the trade war between the USA and China. Global bond rates remain low, and despite incremental increases, interest rates are too low to be attractive from an investment perspective.
In an ongoing low-interest rate environment on savings and with banks withdrawing from property and construction financing, investment groups like Centennial Property Group are seeing value in providing first mortgage funding for property development, recently settling a $48m loan for a mixed-use retail/residential development in Sans Souci, NSW
With the combined influences of a cooling residential property market and heightened bank scrutiny on all aspects of real estate lending, traditional debt sources are, in many cases, closed to developers and commercial real estate investors, particularly where circumstances require a specific funding solution.
