MAGNIFICENT GRAZING ENTERPRISE OPPORTUNITY
Mount Jagged is adjacent to Mount Compass on the beautiful Fleurieu Peninsula, around 60 minutes south of Adelaide by road. “Fairfield” is 201Ha (approx 500 acres) of premier grazing country in the otherwise tightly held Mount Jagged region. The property consists of 2 contiguous titles; the main 2-storey homestead on (approx) 350 acres, and the smaller 150 acres (approx) title that has a dairy, hay & implement shedding and a spacious circa 1950’s 4br cottage.
“Fairfield” is predominantly gently sloping, with some hills grazing and good quality paddock fencing. It is currently operated as a dairy, running 156 milkers, 57 dries and 101 heifers. Effective pasture management is essential for optimum productivity, and the productive quality of the pastures at “Fairfield” is perhaps well-evidenced by the most recent Milk Quality Awards in 2010/2011, 2012/2013, 2014/2015 and 2016. Good management practices have also earned the property its current Johne’s Beef Assurance Score of 7. In all, “Fairfield” presents equally as well for a quality beef cattle operation.
The average annual rainfall in the area is 750mm. A key feature of the productive potential of this property is the 180ML water licence for the taking of surface water from the 3 dams holding a substantial 9.7ML, 120.7ML and 42.9ML respectively, as well as a fully operational bore. There are over 20 stock water dams and numerous water troughs across the property. A 30 acre pivot, a traveling irrigator and 12 acres of permanent sprinklers are included with the property to support a summer cropping phase offering the flexibility of being able to grow summer feed; partially drought proofing the operation.
As the photos show, the 2-storey main homestead is simply spacious opulence under the main roof, with its high quality-appointed 501sqm of indoor living area, 63sqm 3-car garage and 157sqm of verandahs. The large outdoor area around the heated in-ground saltwater pool, along with the manicured gardens completes this magnificent family lifestyle retreat.

- 4 large bedrooms, all with WIR

- 4 bathrooms
- Several large living areas, on both floors
