This very attractive and well maintained deer farm is being offered to the market due to our vendors retiring. The home is approximately 155m² and comprises four bedrooms, two living areas, separate kitchen and there is a detached three car garage. The lounge is heated by a log-burner and there is a night-store heater in the hall. The landscaping and shelter around the house is a feature, as there are a number of specimen trees around the buildings. Farm buildings include a 3-bay hay shed, a 3-bay implement shed, as well as an old storage shed and there is a grain silo on a concrete base. The deer handling facilities are excellent and located in a three bay shed, approximately 14m x 7m. The deer paddocks make up approximately 19.5 ha of the total area and have shelter belts on one or two sides in the form of well-trimmed, mainly pine hedges and the fencing is of a high standard. An access lane leads from the deer yards to the twelve paddocks. The soil on the downs is recorded as Timaru Moderately Deep Silty Loam and in the riverbed area Rakaia Shallow Silty Loam.
This would make an ideal stepping stone to farm ownership for a young couple. On a sealed road, which has a school bus run past the gate, the options are Hororata or Windwhistle Primary Schools, or Darfield High School.
