Fabulous finishing farm, Rodney

Keep your day job and enjoy the lifestyle benefits of living an hour's drive from Auckland's Harbour Bridge and close to popular beaches or scale down your current farming operation to a productive property that will leave you time to enjoy your retirement in an enviable location.

Situated in the renowned farming district of Tomarata this 137 hectare farm (subject to title) is also close to Matakana, the highly rated Tomarata Primary School and Te Arai and Mangawhai beaches.

At the end of a no exit country lane, this picturesque property can be enjoyed for its aesthetic values alone in addition to its excellent farming qualities. It's a versatile, fertile farm with great infrastructure - subdivision to 65 paddocks, serviced by an extensive, well maintained race system. All the hard work has been done in terms of pasture renovation, fencing and race maintenance.

The farm has excellent contour and regularly carried up to 1400 su, however in recent years it has been farmed conservatively with 1200 to 1300 su carried over winter on the 110ha effective area. Being north-facing, the farm is considered early country, enjoying spring growth several weeks ahead of much of the rest of the district. There is ample land for hay and silage or for maize production.

Farm water is pumped to troughs in every paddock from a dam located on one of the streams which flow through the property.

Excellent stock yards, including a Cattlemaster crush, plus a good range of outbuildings complete the package for an easily managed, productive and well maintained property.

The large farm house looks out on the ever changing vistas of pasture and native bush on the property. The north-facing home has open plan living, with excellent indoor/outdoor flow to the decks which wrap around three sides of the house. With four double bedrooms plus an office, sunroom and conservatory, there's ample room to cater for a large family or guests.

A rare offering in a tightly held and very productive farming district.
