An iconic Hawke's Bay station is up for sale, offering potential buyers a tourism and farming opportunity.
Te Rangi Station is a 948-hectare property 60 kilometres north of Napier. One of New Zealand's original deer farms, the station is surrounded by limestone cliffs and 200 hectares of native bush.
First settled in the 1918 post-World War 1 ballot by Robert John Heays, a returned serviceman from Gallipoli, the land is located only 50 minutes' drive from Hawke's Bay Airport and has been developed and farmed by the Heays family for over 100 years.
According to Bayleys Realty Group, who are handling the sale, the land has significant potential for hunting, breeding, and finishing deer, sheep, and beef, with an excellent fertiliser history and strong summer rainfall. Large areas of easy contour provide options for guided walking, hunting, horse, or four-wheel drive tours.
Improvements include a colonial 1920s four-bedroom homestead, 1960s three-bedroom manager's residence, shearer's quarters, four-stand woolshed, sheep and cattle yards, a truck shed/workshop complex, and two deer complexes with all-weather access.
The property is on tender until November 20.
