Description

Rare opportunity - 23ha of premier soils


Set in the heart of Maungatapere, well known as the main horticulture hub of Whangarei - this property is now for sale after 140 years of family ownership.

Presenting as a tidy 23.09 hectares just outside the Maungatapere village this property is well suited for horticulture conversation due to its premier fertile volcanic soils, flat to easy contour, low altitude, historic stone walls and natural springs. The property is currently fenced and divided into even size paddocks which have only ever been grazed and farmed with cattle.

It is extremely rare to have land of this quality and scale come to the market. An opportunity now exists to secure one of the few remaining large blocks of volcanic land in the area and develop it into a thriving horticulture venture. The options are endless with permanent tree crops such as avocados and kiwifruit, market gardening or protected cropping under tunnel houses, utilising the latest hydroponic technology.

Water supply for irrigation purposes is available via the Maungatapere Water Company (irrigation scheme). The property also has a secondary access from Pukeatua Road, which could be used as a service entrance and load-out bay for heavy vehicles and machinery.

Complementing the land is a tidy three bedroom home which would make for an ideal manager's or staff accommodation. Additional infrastructure also consists of a three bay implement shed, hay barn and small workshop with 3 phase power.

Located within an easy 15-minute drive to Whangarei CBD and the Maungatapere village offers a few of the basics such as gas station, dairy, mechanic workshop, post office and the ever-popular Office cafe.
