Just 20 minutes from Blenheim, this attractive 160 hectare property at the end of Barracks Road in Hawkesbury offers a private slice of wilderness and a readily accessible retreat. Rising from 200 metres to 600 metres above sea level, the block features a range of terrain, rocky outcrops and regenerating natives.
Extensive all weather tracks cover the property and provide access to the top of the hill to enjoy stunning views across the Waihopai valley, the Wairau valley and over Cloudy Bay to Cook Strait. Set on a flat site, 400 metres above sea level, a two bedroom off-grid whare is the perfect place to get away from it all. With solar power, a generator, AC and DC lighting, a gas califont, a septic tank, sound water supply, a broad covered verandah and a very efficient woodburner, it offers comfort in all conditions.
There is a set of sturdy cattleyards and a two bay implement shed with an attached workshop. Currently, there are 30 head of 2.5 year old Angus cross cattle which could be purchased with the property. Three dams provide stock water and a springfed stream boasts a swimming hole and Koura. Deer, pigs and turkeys run wild.
As well as grazing cattle, this offering is ideal for hunting, farming carbon credits, planting forestry, building mountain bike tracks, entertaining boisterous children or providing a great family glamping spot in New Zealand's sunniest region.
