Description

Waitao Farm - Real Country Close to Coast and City


This beautiful and varied Bay of Plenty farm is just fifteen minutes from the beach, 20 minutes from downtown Mount Maunganui, surely the largest block so close to the coast.

The 103.8775 hectare (subject to survey) farm is high in the hills above Papamoa with its ridges affording wonderful coastal vistas. It is an unusually shaped farm with a block of undulating land and flats near the road. There are several great house sites and it is already surrounded by quality homes on lifestyle blocks.

A narrow strip links to the hill country farm which dips to the Waitao Stream before rising to its long ridgetop. The bush bordered stream is a real asset, a pleasure to behold with waterfalls tumbling over rocky beds, a wonderful place to take a refreshing dip or pitch a tent in the summer. There is a large bush reserve area below the farm boundary and stands of bush within the farm include a Totara forest.

The flater land along the tops sports an airstrip with two runways to facilitate landings in most winds, and a hangar. The farm currently runs 650 ewes with a 100 per cent lambing rate expected this spring. It is also ideal beef cattle country, and a great place to ride horses with good hills for agility. The pasture is well fertilised and lush, silage hay harvested from some paddocks annually. Four wheel drive capable farm tracks provide access throughout. This is a farm with character which has been in the same family, ex-King Country farmers, since 1984, and has already had some lifestyle blocks subdivided off it. It is rare to find such land in this region of smaller blocks and lifestyle, a real opportunity to own and run a substantial holding, build a home with coastal views, and whizz down to the beach and city so easily along the expressway.
