We are privileged to present to you ‘Mt Huia’, a well-located 309ha hill country sheep and cattle property 9km from SH1 at Mangaweka, and on the through road to Feilding. It is a Romney and Angus breeding unit run in conjunction with a finishing unit.
An added feature of the farm enterprise is a well-established Farmstay, with in-house guest rooms attached to the homestead, and a self-contained cottage on an adjacent title of 13ha.
The property has been faithfully farmed and fertilised for 36 years by the current owners, and the 1925 homestead tastefully renovated over that time to present an attractive and spacious 5-bedroom, 3-bathroom home, set in a large lawned garden.
The farm is well-subdivided with conventional and multi-wire electric fencing, and has a central track for ease of stock movement to 3 sets of satellite yards, as well as the main cattle yards, 4 stand woolshed and covered sheep yards. A lane separates the homestead from a 3ha stand of protected native trees. Other buildings include a large shed and workshop, smaller shed and horse pens, and dog motels.
Farm water supply is from dams with gravity-fed water to troughs on the 14ha of flats.
Pockets of native bush, pine plantings and a eucalyptus woodlot have been fenced off and retired from grazing. Annual plantings of poplar poles have been done under the Horizon’s One Plan.
Both titles are offered for sole, jointly or individually. The 13ha property which is currently the base for the tourism venture would be highly suitable for lifestyle living or a weekend retreat.
Purchasing options will be available:
Option 1 - Entire farm, 2 titles (309 hectares)
Option 2 - Home farm (296 hectares)
Option 3 - Tourism Block (13 hectares) – www.mthuia.co.nz
