Ten hectares of rolling country


This is an attractively elevated 10.3031 hectares of rolling country with a substantial area of easy contour with sunny aspect ideal for planting in horticulture. The demand for avocados is well outstripping supply resulting in a demand for land on which to create orchards of this lucrative crop. This property comprises a mix of gentle to steeper countryside with some sloping north facing sweeps of land and a large flat paddock which provide an environment conducive to growing avocados. It has consistently grazed 40 heifers, also sheep and has produced silage; even with some paddocks planted there would be ample grazing retained. Once part of a much larger farm which has been in the same family for over 50 years this ten hectares spans both sides of the quiet country sealed road with plenty of road access to the paddocks. A stream runs through the lower part of the property. There is a stand of pine trees, a three bay shed with one lockable bay below the house and stockyards and loading bay at the bottom of the drive. In 2000 the brick home, architecturally designed by Peter Lochhead, was built on a site towards the top of the farm enhanced by 360 degree views which take in surrounding countryside and coastline, sunrises over the low lands and sunsets over the Kaimai Ranges in the background. The home is approached up an avenue of pin oaks and situated where the views would not be impeded by large trees on the slopes below. The three bedroom (plus office) home features a pitched timber ceiling in the dining and casual living space, adding an airy atmosphere to open plan living which has heating under the tiled floor. Doors from this room and the adjoining lounge access covered decks on the north side. It's a solidly built home with attention to detail and very practical for a family on a farm. A beautiful paulownia tree dominates easy care established grounds. Combine growing with grazing in country community within ten minutes of Katikati township and an easy 33km commute to Tauranga.
