About this listing
... the owners have come to a crossroad. Montilgallo is on the market for the first time in 23 years - this is your chance for a slice of 'the good life'.

12 acres of fertile land which is free-draining and hasn't been irrigated during the current owner's tenure, offers the perfect easy-care conditions for a lifestyle farm. Mature trees, established shelter belts, five fenced paddocks and a myriad of functional outbuildings complement the 172sqm homestead built in 1975. The plantation of mature pine and gum trees is regenerated to provide a self-sufficient supply of firewood, and a small orchard has recently been developed offering a variety of stone and pip fruit.

A triple drive-through garage with workshop space is sited adjacent to the dwelling, and also houses a drying room and separate WC. A separate large high-stud dedicated workshop can store numerous additional vehicles or implements and has direct internal access to an insulated office located within the building.

There is also an older single garage on site and a three-bay open barn. In 2014 a two-room detached sleepout was built to provide additional accommodation. Each room has separate access to a common deck, and is double-glazed and insulated as required by the current building code.

A new two-bay hay barn has replaced its wind-damaged predecessor and any remaining oat hay will be sold with the property. Three stables have running water, and there is also a shearing shed, cattle race, chicken coop, and dog run. There are a few livestock to be inherited by the new owner.

Minor cosmetic repairs have been completed alongside the owners' own renovation programme, and the home now boasts a modern kitchen with three-month old appliances, and a new bathroom. There is an open fire, heatpump, HRV with heat transfer system, and a brand new woodburner with rural consent will be sold with the property to be installed by the purchaser replacing the existing outdated model. Three bedrooms inside the house are all very generous doubles with built-in storage. The dwelling is well-sited with the separate north-facing lounge opening to the terrace and expansive lawn area with established perimeter plantings, and the property is served by its own well.

Peaceful country living located just six minutes from Kaiapoi, 15 minutes to Rangiora, and 2km from the Waimakariri River. The neighbouring property is the local domain which is currently used as a dressage/equestrian centre, and it is zoned for popular Clarkville and Swannanoa Schools.
