Developing a rural property to a high operational standard can be hard work requiring good knowledge of the land and choice of appropriate land use options all the while being a rewarding project. Klifden Heights is such a property operating comfortably within its capacity and ready for new ownership.
The Vendors currently run approximately 2,500 livestock (ewes, ewe hoggets, ram hoggets and rams) on this well balanced property of 489 hectares comprising a 92 hectare irrigation zone under K-line irrigation via a new pump shed and storage dam serviced by the Hawkdun Irrigation Scheme. The property has a balance of lower hill faces and sheltered gullies leading into higher altitude country up to 940 metres above sea level. The Vendors have a 430 unit stud operation on the property and have been producing award winning lamb in recent years.
This is an outstanding example of a medium sized Central Otago rural property with excellent access to paddocks via a central lane. The property has a modern and well laid out three bedroom, two bathroom homestead built in 2009 and a secondary dwelling, a wool shed, sheep yards and 2-bay tool shed.
The hill block is well subdivided and tracked, getting up to the tors and the “Hobbit Country” provides excellent photography and hang gliding opportunities and the property could support a horse trekking – cottage accommodation enterprise or such like to take advantage of the Rail Trail as it passes close to the farm gate.
With an ample stock of winter feed in place and regular diamond drilling of new grass paddocks the lower paddocks – irrigation zone support the hill blocks that are in good order with excellent tussock cover with regular oversowing and fertiliser applications occurring supported by ongoing management of weed pests. Overall the property is well set up for a new ownership.
Klifden Heights is being offered for sale at $2,900,000 plus GST (land and buildings). Stock and plant are negotiable and the Vendors may consider ownership or equity options.
