Located in a desirable area of well known Northern Southland, Glenlapa Station is a large-scale breeding unit consisting of over 5,000 hectares of freehold land held in three titles. Positioned at the end of Glenlapa Road, the property is extremely private and boasts excellent balance with a mixture of hill country, river flats and downs.
With over 20,000 stock units wintering capacity, the station has been managed and operated to a very high standard, with excellent fertilizer history, pasture development, fencing and tracking throughout. With ongoing development plans and further scope to enhance the operation, the owners have also adopted a strong conservation program focused on sustainability and land management, as well as with the Department of Conservation as a valued neighbour.
Infrastructure consists of two homesteads, two additional staffing houses, mixed single men's quarters, as well as a seven-stand woolshed, multiple cattle and sheep yards, two airstrips, implement sheds, workshop and hay barns. The station is completely self-sufficient with all supplementary and winter feed made on site.
For the recreationally minded, the station has much to offer. Not only private, it is also bordered by two rivers on either side of the property. Well known and acclaimed for its brown trout fishing, the Mataura River is world-famous and visited by international fishermen each summer. The Dome river is smaller but very picturesque with deep pools and gentle rapids. Wild Red deer and Fallow deer live throughout the property with plenty of native bush providing cover. Spectacularly beautiful with well-formed tracks, Glenlapa Station can also be enjoyed by way of horseback, mounting biking or motor biking alike.
Close to a range of regional towns and services and only 135 km to Queenstown's International airport, Glenlapa Station provides the very best in large-scale farming, privacy and recreation attributes for the astute investor.
