A unique opportunity to purchase a significant parcel of freehold high country farm bordering both Lake Wanaka and Lake Hawea.
Available for the first time, as a proposed stand-alone station, this property consists of 2,852 hectares* (7,047 acres) of both rolling paddocks and true high country terrain. This is a smaller scale high country proposition with very strong recreational and lifestyle attributes.
The Mt Isthmus name is taken from Isthmus Peak, the highest peak on the property at 1,386 metres. From the farm tracks to the top of the property, generous views can be gained of both boundaries on Lake Hawea and Lake Wanaka. Beyond this are the stunning 360 degree postcard views that the area is renowned for.
Down at lake level, the entrance to the property is from the Makarora-Lake Hawea Road, just seven minutes drive from the Hawea township. It is on this side of the property where the main productive paddocks are situated along with the newly consented new building platform.
The property has a long history of sheep, beef and deer farming and without any additional land, Mt Isthmus will winter approximately 4,000 SU, with the potential to develop this further. In addition to farming revenue, the property lends itself to a range of recreational and tourism activities. With deer and chamois on the property there is an opportunity to also develop a world class hunting operation.
Given the double lake front location of Mt Isthmus Station, further opportunities also exist hosting fishermen and recreational trampers on the property. The area offers many options for fishing, hunting and hiking, particularly given the proximity to both Mt Aspiring and Fiordland National Parks.
