Vendor would consider all options from outright purchase to lease to buy scenarios for genuine purchasers. The property is 128 hectares in total with a further approx. eight hectares leased from DOC. Current owner has improved deer fencing and internal subdivision. Productive Tuatapere soils makes the farm a strong grass growing unit. The flats are considered very fertile and grow excellent grass which the vendor uses as a feed cell. Very good large three bedroom home with multiple living options. The property is currently used for mainly hinds and run in conjunction with the vendors other farm, Connemara Stud situated 4km away.
