Rich in character and possibilities
This tidy 39 hectare (more or less) farm, rich in character and ongoing possibilities is located in Arohena, around a half hour drive from Te Awamutu.
The owners have developed the property in an environmentally conscious manner for over four decades. While being mindful of future generations, best use of the land and QEII covenanted forest, they have successfully operated an economic dairy farm. The majority of the farm is now leased to a neighbour who runs it together with their own dairy unit.
Around 34 hectares are considered effective with the native forest encompassing 4.6 hectares. The contour is flat to undulating and easy hill and the soils are free draining. Water is from the Arohena District Supply and there's a back-up stream source. Farm buildings are grouped in one area for ease of management and they include the former dairy shed with its yard and stock loading facility, two half round barns and a lockup implement shed.
The 1975 two storey home, with double garage, was refurbished in the early 2000's with the main living areas being on the first floor. Featuring three bedrooms and bathrooms with an open plan kitchen/dining zone plus separate lounge, this generously sized home of some 327sqm offers a bonus. On the ground floor is a self-contained studio consisting of a second kitchen, living and sleeping zone. Given the layout, this studio provides independent accommodation for either extended family members or hospitality for tourists.
The grounds are magnificently landscaped and have been popular with garden groups visiting to enjoy the ponds, mature trees and shrubberies. Nearby, Lakes Arapuni and Waipapa offer swimming, fishing and boating and the Waikato River Trail is also accessible.
Evocatively named El Nido (The Nest), your family will enjoy feathering this wonderful property for themselves.
Offered with vacant possession.
