'The Rock Farm'' is named after Dogshead Rock, a limestone outcrop situated on the property. The significant amount of rock-art on the farm is also of real added interest to people staying on the property.

The 490.33ha farm is available is a whole, or approximately 277ha with all the infrastructure.

Over 30 years of focus on soil-health and nutrition on this farm, has resulted in excellent pasture production and livestock performance, making for an easy transition for the new owner into this well-presented property and ensuring there are no costly surprises.

In a great location, central to sale yards, close to Timaru and on a main tourist route, this provides further options for a homestay or wedding venue, which the homestead and grounds have been used for in the past. It is currently operating a thriving Airbnb business. A wonderfully appealing six-bedroom, three-bathroom home is set in established grounds and gardens, complemented by an in-ground pool, hard-surface tennis court and limestone out-buildings which date back to the original Levels Station buildings and add some real character. There is a very comfortable second three-bedroom home and a full-complement of farm sheds and yards, including a modern, three-stand raised-board woolshed with covered yards.

The farm is exceptionally well subdivided with very good lane systems and reticulated water to each paddock. A large percentage of the property is in new grass, with emphasis on a prairie grass, lucerne, plantain mix, proving very productive for this early spring country. Currently fattening/grazing heifers, beef cattle, bulls and lambs. A simple cost-effective system operating in a sustainable manner, essentially future-proofing the property.

In a great location and a picturesque setting, this land-holding really is a step-ahead, setting the basis for a profitable farming future, providing numerous options for the future owners. Steeped in history, this property has more to offer than meets the eye.
