Hill Country with Scale in a Great Location


Price by Negotiation

The ability to keep it simple, a high standard of fencing, excellent infrastructure, privacy, and recreation at your back door are the features of this large scale hill country property.

The 1,477.3449 hectare property has approximately 9km of frontage on the Hurunui River - well regarded for its fishing and boating - and complemented by hunting on the property, makes this is a recreational paradise, whilst also having some real aesthetic appeal.

Good healthy stock country underpins an easy-care, low-cost farming operation. The property has excellent subdivision, is divided into 63 blocks with very good track access and has a mix of reticulated water to the lower blocks and paddocks, with springs and creeks to the top. The good access, feeding off hill onto the river flats provides for ease of management of the approximately 3,000 mixed-age ewes plus replacement hoggets and 260 head of cattle. It has one of the best examples of low-maintenance sheep yards, including covered yards and a three-stand raised-board woolshed and new cattle yards, which keep it simple, allowing for one couple to manage the property with the use of casual labour from time to time.

A well-maintained main home in an attractive setting is currently used as the manager's residence and a second, more modern, permanent material home gives the option for tourism or a home-stay venture.

Large-scale, close to local amenities, an easy commute into Christchurch and with the privacy and security of being at the end of the road, makes this is a great place to live, work and play.
