We are pleased to offer Manahune, a well-known North Canterbury breeding and finishing property, to the market. Comprising 379.3472 hectares or 937 acres, this often admired property is located on Glenmark Drive, just 20km from Amberley and 65km north of Christchurch.
Manahune has long enjoyed an enviable reputation as a top livestock property. It has a very good balance of contour, from flat to rolling, to developed downs, with some medium hill. Excellent shelter and paddock subdivision are complemented by a shingled track laneway, providing easy access to a second set of sheltered sheep yards and lambing sheds located in the centre of the farm.
Traditionally a breeding and finishing unit, the property has specialised in early prime lamb production. In recent years, our vendors have participated in the Glenmark Drive on-farm lamb sale and have consistently offered the highest number of lambs into the sale. They expect to sell 6,000 lambs in prime and forward condition in this year's sale.
Quality farm buildings include a large four-stand RB woolshed complex as well as hay, implement, lambing and deer sheds. New sheep and on-farm lamb sale yards adjoin the woolshed. Manahune has two very good homes, both recently modernised and redecorated, and both positioned perfectly in well-established garden settings. The main home has three bedrooms and features a new kitchen and extensive decking. The second home offers four bedrooms, plenty of sun and overlooks an orchard.
The sale of Manahune represents an excellent opportunity to purchase a high-performing farm, achieving outstanding results. While ideally suited to early-season lamb production, it could just as easily be farmed with cattle or deer. Within an easy commute of Amberley and Christchurch, this great location underpins the many attributes this quality land-holding has to offer.
