Securely set behind electric automatic entry gates on the Leeston township boundary. The property has an irrigation consent, is fully deer fenced and subdivided into eight stock paddocks, plus pony paddocks. Those with a green thumb will be in their element with the property's large nursery which grows rhododendrons and camellias, plus crops on the land include wheat, peas and radishes. Currently subject to a potential zone change which if successful will allow for a balance of L1 (Residential) and L2 (Rural Residential) zoning, the future potential will be hugely appealing to buyers and gives the property a very bright future. An extensive array of outbuildings includes an approx. 128sqm shed (currently used as a helicopter hangar) with its own workshop, a deer shed and stables, a four-bay hay barn/implement shed, two-bay open shed set up for horses, a pump shed, and chemical shed with wash down pad. The three-bedroom home features a modernised kitchen and a spacious lounge with outdoor access to a BBQ area, perfect for alfresco dining on warm summer days and nights. Outdoors is tranquil and picturesque with beautiful established trees and plantings, and a generous lawn allows children to take play outdoors. Accommodation is not limited to the main home, as the property also comprises a separate one-bedroom sleepout with its own bathroom featuring vanity, shower and toilet. Heating has been taken into account with a panel heater. Further, there is an additional structure on the property which is currently utilised as a 'man cave' and gym. Featuring good storage, there is plenty of room for any equipment required in this space. Leeston township is within walking distance and comprises both Leeston Primary School and Ellesmere College, ensuring quality schooling for all ages. The amenities of Rolleston and Lincoln are a comfortable 15 minute drive away, and Christchurch International Airport is approximately 45 minutes away.
