Waipara Valley Estate


Location, scale, water and diversity are just some of the attributes of this substantial 572ha New Zealand property.

The property has been farmed for the past 50 years as part of a larger farming operation within the same family. Within an hour's drive of Christchurch, the attractive terraced topography is set against a magnificent backdrop of the Three Deans and Mt Grey and it is surrounded by some of New Zealand's great vineyards and wineries.

With its water consents, scale, versatile soils and approximately 180ha presently in irrigation, coupled with the highly-regarded growing conditions of the Waipara Valley, this opens up a potentially diverse range of high-performance land-use options, including viticulture and horticulture. Waipara Valley Estate is currently trading lambs and ewes, fattening early lambs, grazing dairy stock, growing crop and specialist seeds.

This large and aesthetically pleasing farm has extensive areas of flat land divided by three terraces, with excellent shelter for stock or crop. It is supported by well-cared for infrastructure, including a woolshed and covered yards, sheep and cattle yards, hay and implement sheds. Excellent paddock subdivision, laneways and road access via two road frontages, allows for ease of management.

Two centrally-located homes, both surrounded by established gardens, provide a sunny, sheltered aspect. The main house sits amongst beautifully established grounds with a grass tennis court.

Properties with this performance mix of scale, water, location and diversity of use, rarely come to market.
