Randolph Downs, a well-known North Canterbury breeding and finishing property, is being offered to the market. Comprising 843.1426 hectares or 2083 acres, this often admired property is located in the Broomfield area just 14km from Amberley and 55km north of Christchurch.
This property has long enjoyed an enviable reputation as a top livestock property with a good central location. It has a very good balance of contour from rolling flats to developed downs with some medium hill. The tracking and access is good throughout.
Traditionally a breeding and finishing unit, in its current ownership fine wool has been the main focus with a fine wool merino flock comprising 3,400 ewes and 1,200 hoggets being farmed. Our vendors have been supporting 'Icebreaker' contracts through Merino New Zealand in recent times. In addition, approximately 80 R2 steers and 110 R1 steers are also farmed to prime condition.
There is a good range of quality farm buildings including the large four-stand RB woolshed with covered yards, numerous implement and hay sheds and large cattle yards.
One of the most outstanding features of Randolph Downs is the substantial four-bedroom homestead with generous living areas and a modern kitchen. Set in a substantial and mature lawn setting, it also has a good selection of garaging and storage sheds nearby.
The sale of Randolph Downs represents a rare opportunity to purchase one of North Canterbury's most superior properties. With its location, scale and the versatility it offers, such opportunities are unique.
