SouthernHomes Chesterfields' - an equine facility like no other Properties like this one certainly don't come along every day! In fact, equine establishments the size and calibre of `Chesterfields' at 52 McKenzie Rd in Kingseat are very rare indeed. Currently home to one of New Zealand's greatest sportsmen, four time Olympic medallist Blyth Tait, this well-equipped, multi-purpose equine property is up for grabs, with Blyth selling up to contemplate pursuing his dream of competing in the London Olympics in 2012. When Blyth purchased this 37.33 hectare property in 2002 it was a dairy farm, but with a lot of hard work it has been transformed into the ideal site for a large equine business. Features include a 10-stable complex, six stall magnum walker, 60 by 40 sand arena, water bore, multi-facet storage facilities, concrete yearling parade strip, loading ramps, sand yards, extra stables, 18m sand lunging ring and much more! The attractive main residence is both spacious and contemporary. Featuring four bedrooms it has been specifically designed with relaxed open plan living in mind. Additional accommodation (perhaps for staff or guests) comes in the form of a four-bedroom cottage handy to the stables. As well as having so much to offer, Chesterfields is also in a premier spot! Along with Karaka, Kingseat is regarded as one of the prime rural locations of the Franklin area, being synonymous with high quality dairying and part of New Zealand's fast growing thoroughbred industry. The property has the added advantage of being right opposite Byerley Park and close to two off New Zealand's leading stud farms - Haunui and Westbury. 52 McKenzie Rd is for sale by tender which closes at 4pm on Thursday February 24. This outstanding equine facility can be viewed by appointment only. For more information contact Bevin Allen or Karl Todd of Harcourts Papakura.
