787.744 hectare


The combination of two neighboring properties allows astute purchasers the opportunity to buy a large scale, well presented farm. Available individually as 253 hectares (Haldane Block) and 534 hectares (Pope Road Block) or all together as a whole. A great range of modern and well maintained buildings are a real feature including two x four bedroom homesteads and two x large woolsheds with combined covered yard capacity of 4000 woolly ewes. Central lanes, water schemes, well fenced along with a great re grassing history make these farms the complete package. Very tidy properties well worthy of an inspection. "Seeing is believing... come see for yourself!"

Comments The close proximity to the sea gives this property a unique micro climate, the vendors advise they seldom get frosts in the winter and the sand based soil in the sand hills is often considerably warmer than the rest of the soils on the farm in winter, therefore the grass grows all winter. This is a great area to winter cattle and has plenty of physical shelter.
