Rarely does a property of such significance and scale as Calcannia become available to the open marketplace in this tightly held region.
Geoff Schell, joint principal of Ray White Rural SA, says the property has been held in the same family since 1841, a testament to its quality, versatility and reliability.
Calcannia’s 905.24 hectares (2237 acres) is described as a highly productive broadacre cropping and livestock grazing property presented in excellent condition.
“It’s ready for new ownership to take advantage of its sound management and heritage,” Mr Schell says.
“The property offers outstanding improvements with the magnificent historic Calcannia homestead (1909) taking pride of place in the beautifully attractive gardens.
“A workman’s home and additional cottage provide further accommodation options.
“There is an extensive fully enclosed machinery shed with a grain storage area and ample rainwater collection and storage for spraying purposes.
“A well designed four-stand shearing shed with steel sheep yards and also steel cattle yards ensure efficient stock handling.”
Mr Schell says the excellent underground water supplies via permanent springs, dams and bores are another key feature along with first-class fencing across the property.
“The property has multiple titles and has potential for a vineyard development being adjacent established Clare Valley vineyards, also with the bonus of a 15.84ML water licence,” he says.
“Its location is a key being just a short drive into the Clare township and less than a 10-minute drive from the Clare Aerodrome.
“With its quality infrastructure, scale of operation, fertile soils, water resources and strategic location, Calcannia is sure to appeal to an informed range of astute buyers including agribusiness operators and investors.
“Calcannia is arguably some of the best and most reliable agricultural land in SA.”
The property will be firstly offered as a whole or in up to five lots at auction at 2pm on Friday, November 2.
