Quality Arable and Finishing Farm


Willowleigh Farm is an exceptional 128 hectare property situated in the sought after, closely-held, Irwell district.

This property has a rare combination of excellent shape, quality soils and located an easy 30 minute drive from Christchurch. While the property has been farmed by the same family for three generations as a cattle stud and arable operation, due to soils and climate, the property has the flexibility for a wide range of other intensive uses.

Located 33 kilometres south of Central Christchurch and 25 kilometres from Hornby. The property is 10 kilometres and 13 kilometres respectively from the local service centres of Leeston and Lincoln. Both have all local services including both primary and secondary schools.

In recent years the property has been utilised to run a Red Poll Cattle Stud. The fencing is predominantly post and wire with electric. Soils are a balance of Ayreburn silts over clay, Mayfield, Templeton deep silt loams and Fereday deep sandy loam.

The historic Willowleigh homestead is set in a wonderful sheltered country garden, framed by mature specimen trees, with views across the property to the mountains beyond and features a large, modern country kitchen/dining room, separate living room and sunroom leading out onto graceful verandas.

The recently refurbished accommodation includes the five double bedrooms and large family bathroom plus a second bathroom downstairs. A double garage with attached storage rooms and laundry complement this grand homestead which is well appointed for today's farming family.

Farm buildings include a large six bay shed suitable for implement or hay storage, plus an old woolshed and sundry storage sheds which are nearing the end of their economic usefulness.
