About this listing
It is often difficult to find the perfect mix for a dry stock property, being a balance of good flats, workable terraces and suitable hill grazing in one property, but we believe that you will find this in 'Te Wiriki' on the outskirts of Murchison.
Our vendors are offering this farm for sale due to expanding their operation in another region. Currently operating as a lamb finishing and beef property, the blend of the 30 ha approx. of fertile river flats, 40 ha approx. of workable terraced flats, hill grazing that has scattered native trees for shelter, creating approx. 170 ha of grazing and on top of all of that there is approx. 74 ha of established and regenerating native bush, perfect for hunting and a chance to develop more land into pasture creating a property that lends itself to being a multi-facetted operation.
Stock water is all from natural sources which include 10 dams scattered over the property and recently the vendor has been following a strict fertiliser and grass over sowing regime with an ambition to increase the fertility. Farm infrastructure includes a three-stand shearing shed with covered yards, a big 6 bay implement shed, hay sheds, satellite stock yards, good fencing and tracks.
The four-bedroom, two living room house, although basic and requiring some modernising does have solid bones and retains some of the original character that could have value added to it.
The location is in the Tutaki Valley between Murchison and Lake Rotoroa, nice and close to the amenities of the village of Murchison such as shops and school and head the other way for your outdoor adventures whether it be boating or fishing on the lake or heading into the hills for a walk.
Taking all of this into account, it sounds like the ideal property! To explore the opportunities for yourself contact either Sharyn or Toby to view.
