Sudeley Farm - a slice of history

Deadline Sale closing 12pm, Thur 22 April 2021 (unless sold prior)

This impressive farming property, with its magnificent homestead, is set for a new start. Steeped in a rich history, Sudeley Farm is a much-admired property in this sought-after area.

Situated in an idyllic city-fringe location, the new owners will enjoy a wonderful living and working environment, close to local amenities and within a short and scenic commute to Christchurch.

Immaculately presented and lovingly cared-for throughout the generations, the beautiful homestead is undoubtedly one of Canterbury's finest. Tastefully restored to preserve the stunning character features, the home has been completely re-wired and re-plumbed, ensuring a long future. Wraparound verandas bring to mind long summer evenings, dining al fresco and admiring the mature gardens. Essential for a working farm, the spacious open-plan kitchen and dining room and the large adjoining boot room offers practical, easy-living space. Standouts among the home's many features are the rimu joinery, tongue and groove ceilings and the exquisite ornamental fireplace and ceiling rose in the formal dining room.

This fertile 132.9971ha finishing and arable property boasts quality soils. There are an array of outbuildings including a three-stand raised-board woolshed, hay and implement sheds, stables and an old grain-store shed. A two-bedroom home provides accommodation for staff or extended family. The property has been re-grassed within the last five years, is well-fenced and has good all-weather tracks. Approximately 120ha is irrigated via two Briggs Rotorainers applying 55mm per hectare over 11-day rounds.

This versatile land has been used to grow peas and beans for Watties, cropping, kale and fodder beet, and as a finishing property for Angus stud bulls and calves and Perendale, Texel and Suftex stud sheep, opening up many avenues for the new owner. A unique property close to Christchurch.
