A good sized parcel of coastal hill country 40 kilometres west of Waipawa.
Located at Kairakau, Matahuia comprises 343.89 hectares (849.7 acres) more or less of predominantly medium style hill country, ideal as a breeding unit or a winter block for an existing finishing operation.
The healthy country is well tracked giving access around the farm. Watered by spring fed dams in the main plus running creeks, one which has never been known to stop running even in the driest summer.
Fenced into some 14 main paddocks plus a number of holding paddocks at the front. Matahuia traditionally ran a cow herd and breeding flock of ewes. For the last number of years Matahuia has been leased.
The block is naturally sheltered from the south and there has been quite extensive plantings of poplars and willows for shade and erosion control. A small pine block is located on the northern boundary. A good four stand Woolaway woolshed with a 500 night pen capacity plus sheep and cattle yards are located at the front of the farm. A second set of sheep yards are situated up in the middle of the unit.
A newish (circa 2010-2011) three bedroom home with separate double garage affords very comfortable living and is set in a cottage style garden.
The farm is just a short drive from Kairakau and Mangakuri beaches, both sought after holiday spots affording great fishing and diving at your backdoor.
Matahuia will appeal to those young farmers looking to step into that first good sized block, with some value to add or to an existing operation looking for a sound breeding unit to produce finishing stock. The added bonus of coastal activities, proximity back to Hastings or Waipawa plus the strong community around Matahuia will give the block wide appeal.
