Te Awamutu 164 Bank Road

By Neg

This boutique dairy farm is in a highly desirable location bounding the popular Lake Ngaroto Reserve and 10 minutes' drive north of Te Awamutu. Encompassing some 53 hectares (STS) the farm supports 140 to 150 Jersey cows and the average production is 51,304kgMS. Production has exceeded 60,000kgms. The herd remains on throughout the year, moving through the lower country in autumn to early winter then calving and early milking on the more elevated land. The property is subdivided into 28 paddocks with a mixture of trimmed barberry hedges and multi wire post and batten fences. All waterways are fenced off. Soils are a mix of Ohaupo silt loam, Kaipaki peaty loam and loamy peat and the water is sourced from a deep well bore. Farm buildings include a 14 ASHB dairy shed complete with workshop and implement shed, a near new calf shed plus two half round barns amongst others. The effluent pond is lined. Stock, plant and supplementary feed available at valuation. The main home is a substantial two level, six bedroom, two bathroom home that enjoys near views of Lake Ngaroto with more distant views to Mount Pirongia. The staff home provides two bedrooms. Both homes are in sound condition. This property has considerable character, as a dairy farm it is totally compliant as to cooling and effluent management, however, could equally be utilised in other ways capitalising on its location and special character. The Waipa Council is actively promoting the Lake as a destination, popular for sailing, rowing, walking and cycle trails. Astute buyers with an eye on tourism and hospitality will clearly see the value of this property's unique character and location. Te Awamutu is less than 10 minutes (7.7km) away, Hamilton CBD is 27 minutes (28km) and Cambridge is 28 minutes (30km). The Airport is 18 minutes (19km) from your door.
