Glen Barra, one of the largest pastoral land holdings in the Tamworth and Armidale region, has been listed for sale.

The 9283 hectare rural holding has been listed by Ruralco.

It is a historic grazing property with a traditionally high carrying capacity and a central location.

Situated on Glen Barra Road in Watsons Creek, the property is located at the gateway to New England. 

Positioned 74 kilometres north-west of Tamworth, 70 kilometres south-west of Armidale and 37 kilometres east of Manilla, the property consists of granite (approx. 11,000 acres), basalt (approx. 9000 acres) and trap (approx. 3500 acres). 

The timber is comprised of box, kurrajong, iron bark, apple and stringy bark, while the water resources are numerous dams and springs, many recently cleaned out, frontage to New England and Athlone creeks, two electric bores, plus a large feature reconditioned dam behind the homestead.

The four bedroom homestead, originally built in 1870 out of local stone, has been restored over the years to create a comfortable home.

It features high cedar ceilings which compliment the original 40mm thick stringy bark floorboards. 

Other dwellings include a three bedroom managers residence and a two bedroom cottage, both have been recently renovated. 

The listing says the property is for sale because the vendors are looking to retire.

The holding is for sale by expressions of interest closing September 19.
