About this listing
Historically recognized as one of the regions' most prosperous farms, Fernilee is a proven performer in the cattle backgrounding industry. Adopting advanced farming practices, the land offers lush pastures in peak condition amid a serene environment. One look at the cattle is all the evidence you need.

Located in a valley of greenery and abundant water you will enjoy a strong sense of privacy and calm on arrival here. Immaculately maintained, the residence offers uninterrupted views and a sense of space. Bordered by manicured, luxurious lawns (the kind you sink your toes in) it is a place to throw the boots off and call home.

Proof of performance is on record here with the farm producing a stellar average weight gain from steers purchased and fattened over 12-month cycles. That detail aside, the lifestyle is second to none. Gently sloping land virtually absent from rocks and dotted with fine examples of the gum trees Hans Heysen loved to paint.

If farm life, but the freedom to leave are part of your mandate - Fernilee will provide this. Fenced to 14 paddocks and set up primarily to fatten steers, everything here is in excellent order. Intelligent structuring of the property enables stock to graze and source water without a need for daily management. Supplied by 8 dams and a steady rainfall, the location has proven to be drought proof to date. Irrigation is also an option with the bonus of a 16.88 meg water licence.

An impressive array of sheds includes covered stock handling facilities with yards, hay and implement shedding plus garaging for 9 cars. Located 5 minutes from the heart of Woodside amid the glorious Adelaide Hills region it is a property guaranteed to provide the peace and prosperity you seek.
