Size does matter in Heartland Waikato

Location, size and character are the defining features of this 395 hectare (more or less) drystock property in six titles, situated between Tirau and Putaruru and only 30-40 minutes from Hamilton, Tauranga and Rotorua. Presently farming sheep, beef breeding cows and contract dairy grazing, there are possibilities for further diversification, with approx 85 hectares of croppable land and being close to the popular Blue Spring, opportunities are endless for adventure tourism or farmstays.

Contour ranges from flat cropping land to majority of rolling with some steeper sidlings, as well as areas of native bush and forestry lots. Strong Tirau Ash soil types underlie the quality pastures that have been improved with the present owners and subdivided into approx 80 paddocks, mostly having a mix of quality conventional and electric fencing.

The substantial brick and tile five bedroom home features three bathrooms plus an office and inground pool and is set in mature grounds with spectacular rural views from its elevated site. A second three bedroom brick and cedar home for workers or to convert into farm stay accommodation.

A four stand wool shed with a 500 sheep night pen and two sets of sheep yards. Two large implement sheds, one is lockable with power and the other has stables attached. There are three haybarns conveniently situated around the property and two sets of well built cattle yards.

A property that is very unique in the central Waikato location and the magical qualities of the native bush and dedicated wetland areas all add to the special ambience you feel when you drive around this farm. An adventure haven for any outdoor enthusiast, with a trout stream, water fowl, upland game, and occasional wild deer and pigs only minutes from a well-appointed eco-lodge, which provides glamping and entertaining opportunities for friends and family.

A property of this size with all these attributes is a rare find in this part of the Waikato so call Neville Jacques now to discuss viewing times.
