How to Find the Property You Want in a Tight Market

Currently in Dunedin, finding a house you want to buy at a price you want to pay is like looking for a needle in a haystack. It’s no secret that there are more people looking for houses to buy than there are houses for sale.

But, fear not!

At Living Corporation we do more than just list houses for sale (although you can see those below). Our approach is different.

Our entire property consultancy team (all 12 of them) combines their in-depth knowledge of the local market to help you find a house you can be proud to call home.

Even if your house is not listed for sale with us. Or you have no home to sell.

At Living Corporation, we put YOU first.

The Homestead

With asphalt seal up the valley from State Highway One and to the gate of Broad Gully Farm, the treats are only just beginning. Over the cattle  stop and through the lush Rhododendrons that tower on either side of this picturesque entrance, and you emerge into this enclave encapsulating the 320sq.m, three bedroom home surrounded by magnificent specimen trees. The homestead is ideally orientated to capture the sun and provide for indoor and outdoor entertainment of family and friends.

The Outbuildings

If you are keen on storage and a place for every conceivable vehicle or animal, the out buildings on this property certainly oblige. The modern five bay stable with tie-up area is a stunning complex which any equine enthusiast will love, but equally, it could be used to raise calves. For vehicles and tools, the 6 bay implement shed with lockable workshop means you can buy even more trucks and tractors and hand tools and keep them protected from the elements. Broad Gully Farm is steeped in history with an historic woolshed with attached barn with loft, taking pride of place among the outbuildings. For those wanting a project, the restoration of the small cottage with quaint covered veranda would be a worthy cause and this could be used for farm homestays or again, extra accommodation for family or farm workers.

Other outbuildings include garden shed, two woodsheds and glasshouse. Stock handling facilities include the 100 head capacity wool shed, sheep yards and cattle yards with a bale and stock stuck loading facilities for both sheep and cattle.

The Land

Subdivided into 21 paddocks and with approximately 18 hectares being irrigated with K Line and pods, this property is highly productive due to a sheltered aspect and good management history.

Broad Gully Farm is ideally suited to general grazing and fattening, but also as a dairy run-off, calf rearing, horse training, horse breeding and because of the range of contour, perfectly suited for agisting horses.

The contour is flat through easy slope to a rear hill block with a broad top surrounded by forestry which affords the property protection from prevailing weather.

Fencing is all of a good standard with post and wire plus electric top wire and many fences with an equine wire for the horses.

Wintering stock numbers have been 90 cattle, 30 horses and 50 sheep.
