Sulphur Springs, an immaculate farm situated at 955 Scargill Valley Road, is offered to the market by our retiring vendors. During their ownership over the past 36 years, they have greatly enhanced the property with modern farming practices, good husbandry and have achieved outstanding results.
The property comprises 201.9540 hectares freehold in one title and is located approximately 42km north of Amberley and 88km north of Christchurch.
Outstanding farm production as a breeding and finishing unit has been a feature over a long number of years. Normally wintering approximately 1,100 MA high performing composite ewes, 230 hoggets and 100 cattle, most lambs are finished prior to the end of November.
Farm buildings include the three-stand shearing shed, modern quality implement and hay sheds, second set of sheep yards and good cattle yards. The general infrastructure is well above average. One of the most outstanding features of this property is the near-new homestead (2010), set in the original established homestead setting. This lovely home comprising of three large bedrooms (the master bedroom with en-suite and WIR), separate office, separate laundry, family bathroom, two separate toilets, exudes quality throughout and is positioned with stunning views over the Scargill Valley and beyond.
The property itself offers a good balance of north and south facing country and has numerous well-trimmed shelter belts providing quality shelter.
Sulphur Springs has a strong fertiliser history and a full Nutrient Budget is available for the property from the vendor's agents.
The property is also sold including 44 fully-paid-up Hurunui Water Project shares.
The sale of Sulphur Springs provides the discerning purchaser with the opportunity to purchase a high-performing breeding and finishing unit in a well-regarded farming area. Few, if any, better farm purchasing opportunities exist in Canterbury.
