Eco properties on the market: Ever tasted an achacha fruit? Here’s a property ripe with potential (and delicious fruit to boot). Have a look at this cute and certified organic/biodynamic plantation that comes with two farm houses with seven rooms for all your guests.
Stroll through your very own 304 acre farm with 16,000 mature achacha trees – apparently the first and largest commercial achacha operation in the world. This highly prized tropical fruit has a flavour described as “sweet, tangy, refreshing – like a sorbet”.
It’s not just a hobby farm – you will get a fully established business with growing methods, sales, supply chains and systems already in place. And with growing demand for this award-winning tropical fruit the sellers say it is ready to be taken to the next level.
Cast off the shackles of the energy crisis and live your off-grid dreams, with a 55.44 kilowatt solar electricity system integrated with mains power.
Farmlands are fully irrigated and the property has a water catchment of 535 megalitres, but uses only a small part of this and sells the remainder on the open market.
In addition to the achacha trees, the property boasts 3000 African mahogany trees, 60 mango trees, plus coconuts, dragonfruit, jackfruit, lemons, lychees, papaya, passionfruit, soursop and star apples. You and your neighbours will never go hungry!
The houses themselves have plenty of space and all the amenities. The main house has four large bedrooms and three bathrooms, large open plan living area adjoining a dining area, large kitchen which is council certified for food preparation, laundry, conference room capable of seating up to 35 people, and an office, with attached breezeway and a laboratory and bathroom.
The secondary cottage is elevated with three bedrooms, bathroom, separate toilet, kitchen/living, an open deck at the front and a closed deck facing the orchard. The packing shed has all the necessary equipment plus a cool room and tool room.
Sounds like a delicious daydream? It could be yours for an estimated price of $860,000 (sale by negotiation) – and the sellers suggest going in on it in a group, considering there are two dwellings on the property. Alternatively, you could get a second bit of income through Airbnb or similar.
Located in North Queensland, 45 kilometres south of Townsville, Palm Creek Plantation is 40 minutes’ drive from Townsville International Airport, Townsville Port, excellent schools, leading Australian universities, medical care and cultural institutions.
