Lilydale Station is an impressive 4,300 hectare (10,630 acre) freehold landholding located in the Southern Alps of New Zealand just 15 minutes from the small town of Fairlie.
This remarkable property is currently a working sheep and cattle station and also includes the Fox Peak Ski Field, as well as operating as the Lilydale Wilderness Hunting Area, Alpure Peaks Snowcat and Backcountry Adventures.
Its varied terrain features 4,300 hectares (10,630 acres) of mountainous country and with wild chamois, thar and deer in the hills, this is a hunter’s paradise. The property’s braided rivers and steep slopes drop down to a further 255 hectares (630 acres) of flatter farmland boasting beautiful views of the surrounding mountains and green pastures of the area.
Bounded by expansive areas of Department of Conservation Land, Lilydale Station is a uniquely private property close to the world renowned Aoraki Mount Cook National Park and the turquoise blue waters of Lake Tekapo and Lake Pukaki. Stunning Lake Opuha, a well known lake in the area for trout and salmon fishing, boating, kayaking and water skiing is also within close proximity.
The current owners represent a family who have nurtured this property for four generations and this is a fantastic long-term investment opportunity in an established working sheep and beef farm with suburb lifestyle attributes and additional commercial ventures.
Close to the service town of Fairlie and the South Island’s main city Christchurch, which is a mere 2.5 hour drive away, this secluded landholding is located in truly spectacular surroundings.
