Mt Terako is a unique 1415 hectare property located in an aesthetically outstanding location on the scenic route between Christchurch and Kaikoura close to Mt Lyford ski field. With stunning views looking to and from the property it has long been admired for its location.
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, and with consistently proven results. Excellent infrastructure includes a modern four-bedroom home incorporating established gardens with picturesque views to the mountains and a full range of farm buildings.
A very 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 deserves your attention!
