Always Wanted To Farm? (24.3727 Ha.)
Approximately sixty acres for your imagination to run riot on, and within easy walking distance to shops and schools at Waiau Pa. Prime land, flat to gently rolling, and now on the market for the first time in almost forty years. Presented with the feel of an English parkland, the property is totally unique as it has been successfully farmed as a deer farm during this time, but sadly now, the vendors feel it is time to downsize, and they need to pass the property on to someone who will appreciate it as much as they have, and will enjoy giving it the modernization that it may need.
A beautiful stone entrance starts you down a tranquil mature tree-lined drive to the spacious and welcoming 1950's, 5 bedroomed Homestead, surrounded by beautiful gardens and magnificent trees. It has a wonderful ambience and you can see it has been built by master craftsmen of that era, with heart native timbers throughout and matai timber floors in the kitchen and under the carpet! (Polished floors throughout would look amazing!) And you can just imagine what you could do with the large farmhouse kitchen! This much loved family area opens on to a large patio, where you can relax with your early morning coffee, just what country living is all about!
The home has a large separate dining room, with large windows and opens to the gracious formal lounge with doors opening to a large patio and the afternoon sun, and overlooking a gorgeous country garden, just the most magic spot for your afternoon or evening drink with friends. In winter, this area has 2 fireplaces, and with doors opening into the hall, towards the five bedrooms, the whole house is kept warm. If you have a flair for interior decorating, the spaces are fabulous!
Outside, a well formed farm drive takes you a whole 1 kilometre to the back of the farm, which finishes at the estuary. In past times the owner has swum here, but the access would now need some attention!
As you drive to the back of the farm, you will notice the tranquility of the place and the amazing birdlife, even the pheasants are catered for here with their own patches of specially cultivated long grass! They are fabulous to watch as you enjoy your early morning walk in the sun to check your happy stock!
The deer shed for the handling of the deer is halfway down the farm for easy access for the handling and feeding of stock. The fencing is specialised deer fencing, but the land could easily be used for fattening sheep and cattle, and would also lend itself to becoming an exquisite equestrian block. There is no shortage of veterinarians and riding coaches in the area. The property has its own water bore for stock water.
An incredible improvement project for someone who has a vision for the land in the future, or just wants a small farm close to Auckland, as it is only 20 minutes to the Karaka or Drury motorways.
Here you can have everything you want in a quiet and peaceful sanctuary, you can really rise to the challenge and put your stamp on it! An exceptional opportunity!
Inspection will be rewarded.
