If you are looking for an organic, sustainable and successful lifestyle farm business, then look no further.
This property of 14 acres with 200m of river frontage on the Clohesy river, a spacious home, edible landscape, and a profitable niche microherbs business, is a must see.
So let’s start from the beginning.
Koah is located 45mins west of Cairns and 30 minutes from Mareeba. Sitting at 400m above sea level on the Atherton tablelands, Koah is situated on the drier tropical side of the tablelands. The property enjoys an average of 1200mm of rain per annum and backs onto the Clohesy river which runs year-round. There is riparian access to the river, an additional 10 megalitre water licence, a potable bore, and 50,000L water storage. The majority of water storage is located at the top of the property with both 2 & 4 inch irrigation lines underground to pump from the river to the tanks.
The property itself is a north facing sloped block and has a large grassed top paddock of mainly brachiaria, a 1 megalitre dam, lower cleared paddocks, greenhouses, buildings and orchards spread throughout. There are stands of 25 year old millable Eucalypt and Radiata pine and a separate 2 phase ergon connection and meter on the top paddock that was recently installed.
The 3 bedroom house is timber frame, with a log cabin styled exterior and large verandahs surrounding it. The interior of the home has recently been modernized with vinyl flooring, downlights and full reverse cycle air-conditioning. The 3 bedrooms all contain WIRs and air-conditioning. The kitchen which overlooks the garden has a gas freestanding oven, rain water filter and walk in pantry. French doors open on to the large back deck which is large enough to host a party or perhaps just a quiet BBQ. Either or, the great view and nice breeze make this the favourite place to relax.
The separate cabin or granny flat is a great size fully airconditioned, and complete with kitchenette, living area and a full size bathroom. The 2-bay carport that is attached to the granny flat has ample storage space and houses the 10kw battery for the 20kw solar system. The system averages 100kw per day and supplies the farm and business whilst providing credits.
A number of different organic food forests/syntropic gardens are growing productively on site.
Some of the species include-
Mangos, Banana, Lychee, Mulberry, Dragon fruit, Black sapote, Carambola, Rollinia, Custard apple, Star apple, Panama berry, Macadamia, Brazilian cherry, Acerola cherry, Lime, Orange, Mandarin, Guava, Feijoa, Figs, Tamarillo, Finger lime, Ice cream bean, Cashew, Coconut, Achacha, Burdekin plum, Jackfruit, Pomegranate, Pineapples, Passionfruit, Tamarind, Elderberry, Papaya.
The veggie garden is productive with pumpkin, sweet potato, tomatoes, carrots, cucumbers, eggplants, beans and many other greens. The chicken run currently houses 8 happy girls who as you can imagine, get a lot of healthy supplemental feed.
Extensive irrigation systems are in place to water the property and a near new Orange 240v jet pump supplies water from the river to the water storage tanks.
The pizza oven and firepit is centrally located with ease of access to the kitchen and the back verandah, perfect for entertaining small or large groups on those milder tableland nights.
Enjoy the tranquility of this property, wake up to the bird song and the kookaburras, swim in your own backyard rainforest paradise and enjoy the spoils of year-round abundant tropical fruit, what more could you want!
