NGAPUHI - ATTRACTIVE HILL COUNTRY AND FINISHING - 377HA
851 Clifton Grove Road Carterton
Welcome to Ngapuhi, a picturesque, nicely balanced and well established sheep and beef breeding and finishing unit, located close to the vibrant rural hub of Gladstone and only a 35 minute drive from Masterton. Ngapuhi has been in the vendors family for several generations, each undertaking extensive planting of gully and hill country faces in a wide selection of trees. Several mature stands of native bush, including some significant Totara trees bring added character and beauty to Ngapuhi. There are around 340 hectares effective with some 50 hectares of alluvial and terrace flats used for green feed crops to support lamb and bull finishing, the balance being medium hill with steeper faces towards the back of the main breeding block. With three titles purchase options exist of 150 hectares and 227 hectares. A recent soil test indicates Olsen P levels on the flats and terraces averaging 49, and hill country 15, and pH levels from 5.4 – 6.3 (average 5.7). There is a well sited and modernised homestead with four bedrooms, rumpus room and attached studio set in mature landscaped grounds featuring a tennis court. Farm buildings consist of a main three stand woolshed, second three stand woolshed alongside cattle yards, three satellite yards with well-located storage and implement shedding supporting the farming operations. Set in a well-established farming area and with good balance of contour, enabling breeding and finishing options, Ngapuhi has been faithfully farmed and developed over many years– an opportunity not to be missed!
