After 150 years in the Ferguson family, the historic Fergusons Bush Homestead, 297 hectare farm property, combined with the family's 68 hectare Mikonui support property are being offered for sale. These properties present an opportunity to continue with the current, Beef breeding and finishing or are well enough developed to suit a Dairy support operation. With approximately 150 hectare grazable on the Homestead property and 68 hectare effective on the Mikonui property just minutes down the road you have good scale, balance of soil types and topography to effectively manage the properties through the yearly cycle of seasonal and weather changes. The properties have been run conservatively however; fertilizer and lime along with repairs and maintenance have been kept up. This management policy is evident in the great order and tidy appearance of the properties now being presented to the market.
The Homestead offers an older but solid four bedroom home with multiple living areas and two bathrooms set on a sunny and elevated site in an established garden. Complementing the home is a range of garaging and support buildings. The farm yard area adjacent to the home is the base for a range of sound and well maintained farm buildings, including a large implement and fertilizer storage shed with a full concrete floor and workshop service pit. Arched roof hay barn, shearing shed and sound cattle yards on a concrete base.
The Mikonui property has a modern, one bay high stud barn with fertiliser bin. Established all weather truck access to the yard area and the adjacent cattle yards.
This is a rare opportunity with good location only 30 minutes south of Hokitika.
Option to purchase properties separately would be considered.
