If you are after four hectares ideal for horticulture with plenty shedding and a near new home, then look no further!

Live in style while you capitalise on the scope on this country haven for lifestyle or horticulture. Just over a year ago a brand new home was built on this attractive country orchard at Athenree, north of Tauranga and handy to popular Waihi Beach. The solid brick dwelling was built on the edge of the orchard thus retaining the well established well sheltered blocks which enjoy a warm micro climate not far from the coast. The rows of tamarillo trees are nearing their 'use by' date but the land they occupy has huge potential for replanting in the current crop or for other horticultural use. All the infrastructure is there, the land is irrigated and there is a large shed to serve the orchard. Access to the shed is off a shared driveway while the home's drive is directly off this country road not far from State Highway Two. The home has been built to the sunshine with the added attraction of the bushy backdrop provided by the nearby Athenree Gorge.

It is not often one finds such an impeccable country home, constructed and appointed to the highest standards and offering sophisticated relaxed living in a classically styled interior where light and dark decor provides balance and background for your individual style. The kitchen in a dream with double oven, heaps of drawers, plenty of bench space, a breakfast bar PLUS a full scullery with open shelves and a sink under the window. The casual or family lounge and dining areas are open plan with an easy social relationship with the kitchen where tiles extend out from the breakfast bar in practical fashion. Double French doors link the exceptionally generous formal lounge with both the foyer and the open plan living. Three sets of sliders access an outdoor living area which provides cover for al fresco dining. The master suite is large and luxurious with a gorgeous black and cream bathroom, tiled to the ceiling, with interesting detail around the mirror above the generous vanity, and a spa bath inviting two to soak off the day's work with a bottle of bubbly! The family bathroom which serves the further three bedrooms is equally well appointed and has a standard bath. There is also a 'powder room'. Add internal access double garaging and you have everything you would expect in a premium city home with the huge bonus of a peaceful country setting. The grounds are a blank canvas awaiting your input to create more outdoor living options and a garden that reflects the way you want to enjoy your country life.

With the home all done you will be free to develop the land as you wish - to enjoy it purely as lifestyle or replant to generate an income.

Athenree is a peaceful country community so central for the local beaches and the upper Tauranga harbour for coastal and ocean based recreation. You can shop at Waihi Beach, Waihi township or Katikati. Tauranga city is an easy drive and Auckland less than two hours away.


Few regions in New Zealand or the world for that matter have as much to offer as the Bay of Plenty. From the gentle harbour waters to its surf beaches, its fishing and diving grounds to the scenic bush, the Bay is as much a quiet recreational playground as it is a thriving business and rural community. Key economic elements for the region include Tourism, Horticulture (predominately Kiwifruit and Avocado production), Viticulture, Pastoral farming, Forestry, Housing and Holiday Makers. The rapid growth in the area provides a vibrant living environment from job opportunities to business prospects with a sustainable future.

Tauranga as a city is one of the fastest, if not fastest growing cities in New Zealand. With a mixture of beautiful scenery, great beaches, cafes, restaurants and nightspots it is more than a city it is a lifestyle. The award winning schools also provide a key reason why Tauranga is proving to be such an attractive destination for both ex Kiwi's and migrants as a place to set up their new life in New Zealand.
