Specialist Equine Facility


Close to Hamilton City and located just off State Highway 39, on a quiet no exit road, lies this 13.4338 hectare (more or less) specialist equine complex. Quarantine Services is a pre-export quarantine facility for horses requiring isolation before being shipped to countries who have quarantine requirements.

This property, located on Walsh Road in Whatawhata, is on the western link and right in the growth path of Hamilton's burgeoning lifestyle market.

The property has a very private setting behind shelter hedges and post and rail fences. One has to get into the property to appreciate all that goes on in here. This exclusive property has continuous pre-approval to quarantine horses for up to 20 countries.

The current owners have run this facility for over 30 years and their life's work is very evident to see.

As with quarantine the horses do not spend much time outside, so an extensive isolated complex is required.

This property has 53 stables broken into seven separate areas. All the stables are in good order with five having separate wash bays, two have gas heated hot water. There are two crushes for holding horses during veterinary inspections, a roofed six horse walker and two roofed breaking in buildings. A truck shed and several storage/implement sheds are included in the complex.

A 750sqm sand training track with starting stalls rings several of the paddocks. Most of the 21 paddocks are fenced with post and rail and hedges.

Water is sourced from a bore and pressure fed to the stables and farm.

The 340sqm main dwelling is very impressive with two levels featuring four bedrooms, office, two bathrooms, two kitchenettes, two large lounges, open plan kitchen and dining area plus an internally accessed double garage. The home is accessed via an asphalt driveway from the road and projects a serene setting as one approaches.

Staff accommodation is by way of one permanent building and one transportable, both with toilet and shower.

The whole complex is either concrete or asphalt in the working hub which makes the environment to work in much more comfortable.

With a nice array of trees and hedges, a very private setting and its lovely spacious home this would make an idyllic lifestyle property or continue as an exclusive equine establishment.
