Inglis Rural Property is pleased to present 'Invermien', a rare opportunity to secure a commercial scale rural holding or Upper Hunter equine headquarters with a significant homestead in proximity to a major regional centre.
381.84* hectares (943.53*acres)
Situated 5* km south of Scone in an elevated private position and easily accessible from Muswellbrook (30* km), Tamworth (135* km), and Sydney (287* km) via the Hunter Expressway.
Originally the first land grant in Scone c. 1825, the Invermien settlement hosts the first Scone Courthouse and jail/coach house, now part renovated and part of the colonial style homestead.
A feature of the property is the flagship homestead overlooking the Scone Township and Kingdon Ponds. The colonial style homestead with central courtyard, is an iconic landmark.
The property is divided into 55* paddocks with excellent laneway access throughout. Ranging from highly productive heavy black river flats, ideal for intensive hay or fodder production to gently undulating fertile red clay rises ideal for equine and cattle production. The country is highly scenic with scattered timber including kurrajong, Apple and Box trees throughout.
EXCELLENT WATER & IRRIGATION

An 803ML water licence is utilised via two groundwater wells that supply a 150,000L header tank system and services an extensive irrigation network of reticulated stock and domestic water including troughs in every paddock and a series of irrigation hydrants across the property. All buildings and sheds feature large rainwater tanks and additional elevated tanks with gravity feed throughout the farm.
DIVERSE INCOME STREAM
