COMMENTS: Greenacres is considered by the industry gurus to be simply , the ‘’best of the best’’. The improvements are 'as new' & in immaculate condition, the orchard likewise. The water infrastructure is nothing short of impressive, the location superb, the outlook from the homestead would be near impossible to replicate. The property is basically run single handedly by the current owner with only a very limited amount of outside labour being utilised during the harvest season which reflects enormously the ''bottom line '' figure , Greenacres is a class act and has no opposition within the industry, ''anywhere' !!! , an absolute credit to the current owners. All the hard work has been done and, as a result of this, the property will 'look after' the new owners, financially & lifestyle wise.
