Located on the scenic route between Christchurch and Kaikoura, close to the Mt Lyford ski field area, Mt Terako is a unique 1415 hectare property.
Along with its farming values, it is aesthetically stunning with views looking to and from the property .
With consistently proven results, the farming operation is a sheep and beef breeding property historically running approximately 2,400 Perendale sheep and approximately 350 Angus cattle, with some finishing. A modern four-bedroom home, incorporating established gardens with picturesque views to the mountains, and a full range of farm buildings provides outstanding infrastructure.
A unique and special feature of this property is the 391 hectare Queen's Commonwealth Canopy Covenant (QCCC) area of native bush and scree. This is a single block of montane beech forest, subalpine scrub, shrubland and rockfields, rupestral and alpine herbfields, and screes. Situated in the Amuri range, the covenant sits on the flanks of Mt. Terako and covers 1,140 vertical metres. It provides habitat for Eastern Falcon and occasional Kea and Kaka as well as Epilobium Forbesii and the carnivorous snail Wainuia Edwardi.
Recreational opportunities abound here alongside the established farming operation and outstanding natural landscape. Farmers, conservationists and investors - this property is a must to view!
