264 Queen Street, Richmond.

This property is on the market for the first time in 40 years and is situated at the intersection of Doughboy Road and the State Highway, approximately 20km South East of Murchison. This is a very popular farming area which comprises many dairy farms and fattening units on this stretch of the Valley, adjacent to the Maruia River with its fertile river terraces and known for its rather milder winter climate.

This property is in two titles, the larger block of 149.1165 hectares, on title reference NL10C/214, and the smaller hillside block of 87.8388 hectares on title reference NL6A/405.

The larger block comprises of approximately 45 hectares of flat pasture, 25 hectares of elevated terrace and 30 hectares of moderate hill grazing. (Prospective buyers are invited to do their own assessment.)

The remainder of the property comprises of moderate to steeply sloping, northerly and westerly facing hills, much of which is established in plantation forestry and subject to a forestry rights agreement. (More information available from the agent) There is a nice strip of native trees on the northern boundary adjacent to the Doughboy Road terraces.

The pasture areas are mainly in good condition and have been regularly top dressed. They are suitable for dairy runoff grazing, finishing and the significant area of flat land on this farm can be used for silage and hay making. The land is subdivided into a number of paddocks with post and wire fences, which are in reasonable condition, but some maintenance and re-fencing might be required in certain areas. No implement shed or storage buildings are available besides a former cowshed which could still be converted into a storage area and the cattle yards, including a loadout race, are in functional condition.

This property is a diamond in the rough waiting to be transformed into a gem. The vendors are willing to negotiate and consider all reasonable offers.
