Melrose Station is known locally as a premium property with its abundance of easy contour and is the ideal additional finishing farm to a larger enterprise or equally as appealing to the owner-operator as a breeding/finishing enterprise. Rarely do properties of this quality come to the market.
Located only 47 kilometres north of Napier city on State Highway 2 is Melrose Station, a first class 790ha station which boasts approximately 400ha of flat and easy tractor country. The free draining fertile soils allow for intensive cattle finishing.
The station has recently benefited from capital applications of fertiliser, lime and 1600kg of white clover seed. Twelve kilometres of new conventional fencing and laneways, with metal tracks providing excellent access. Reticulated water covers approximately half of the property with the balance being natural streams and dams. There is currently 20ha in winter kale, 40ha in a rape/permanent pasture mix and 18ha of lucerne harvested for supplementary feed.
Improvements include a refurbished four bedroom managers home, fully refurbished three bedroom cottage, five stand and four stand woolsheds, large cattle yards, numerous implement sheds and haybarns. A fantastic house site with views to die for has been prepared with services ready to build. The combination of fantastic contour, good summer rainfall and significant capital investment provides a very special opportunity to purchase a finishing station which has further potential to finish very good numbers of livestock.
