Birchdale is an outstanding, 660 hectare farming property situated at 338 Birchdale Road in the Masons Flat area of Hawarden and has long been regarded as one of the Hawarden districts most well-balanced farms.
Birchdale was first owned by Joseph Haydon in 1893 and originally consisted of 13,192 hectares and at that time was stocked with 22,000 sheep. Over the ensuing years the property was slowly split and sold and in 1923 became the property that it is today.
The property features mostly easy to rolling hill country and flats. The contour provides good natural shelter and is regarded as healthy stock country which is well suited to breeding and finishing.
Well maintained farm infrastructure, good stock water supply systems, a high standard of fencing including good laneways and tracks in addition to established shelter are found across the whole property.
This exceptional sheep and beef breeding and finishing property currently carries a mix of composite ewes and hoggets in conjunction with Hereford cattle, with all young stock being finished on farm.
The property is complemented by two dwellings - the main home which is a four bedroom family home and the four bedroom, original Birchdale homestead. Both homes are set in an established and sheltered setting with their elevated position commanding stunning views over the lower farm and the wider Hawarden farming district.
In summary, a striking, easily accessible, foothills property that is well set up with two very good homes and a full range of farm improvements and represents one of the best purchasing options available in Canterbury for some time.
