Best views with an orchard in the Bay

Embrace a wide coastal and Kaimai panorama from your ridge top home, while the sunny slopes below nurture a thriving avocado orchard which has been professionally managed.

The four + bedroom home spreads itself generously on its elevated ridge, enhancing exposure to sunshine and views from morning coffee on the east deck to evening drinks on the pool deck. Bathe in the master suite and soak up rolling layers of green stretching to the Kaimai ranges. Your bedroom window frames those legendary Kaimai sunsets. Enjoy starry nights from the spa pool, soak up afternoon sunshine in the second lounge/media room. Some of the gleaming timber floors are original tawa, retained when the home was rebuilt from the floor up in 1999. A recent upgrade delivers a sleek new kitchen and classically contemporary bathrooms. A shed near the house proves versatile as a sleepout, wine cellar and workshop.

The 200-tree avocado orchard comprises approximately half 18-year-old trees and half nine-year-old, sloping from the home grounds towards the north and northwest. Professional management for six years is reflected in its husbandry and production figures which go back to 2013. The trees are laden this year suggesting the next harvest will be its best ever. A 'pony paddock' between the well sheltered blocks provides the option to graze or increase the size of your orchard. There are two orchard entrances off Wright Road, access around the orchard efficient and storage provided by a three-bay shed and a barn; with a couple of loose boxes suitable for to equine use.

Pick an exotic fruit salad from a home orchard of damsons, quince, pomegranate, figs, grapes, apples and feijoa.

Live in a friendly country community which has regular get togethers. School buses stop at the gate. It's about ten minutes to Katikati with Tauranga Harbour, Omokoroa and Waihi Beach within easy reach.
