The main home is a modern three bedroom brick with office and double garaging built 2006, the other two are a three bedroom weatherboard renovated along with a two bedroom cottage.
This well cared for farm was a conversion in 2006 from forestry with all infrastructure new, so all the hard work has been completed and awaits the incoming purchaser. You need to take advantage of this dairy farm as conversion will become difficult under the current healthy rivers proposal.
