1.9790 hectare avocado property in the heart of Katikati's horticulture Mecca. 1970's brick home with 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The house is solid but could do with some interior renovations to modernise it. So there is plenty of room for someone to add their own touch to the home - nothing a handy man (or woman) couldn't do! There is a separate shed alongside the house that has a single car garage as well as a huge concrete block, orchard shed at approx. 10x14m. The house sits alongside Pukakura Road in amongst tidy grounds, manicured lawns, with loads of fruit trees and gardens. This is a lovely quiet and private spot and it is only a 5 minute drive into down town Katikati.
In the orchard there are 57 mature Hass avocado trees at final spacing's and another 61 that have just had major structural pruning back to stumps- these trees should show signs of new growth within the next few months. The orchard had some water damage over winter last year which left the now pruned trees with Phytophthora. Trees were injected at the start of this year- but to aid recovery it was decided to hard prune the effected trees. There is plenty of room to plant more avocados. Drainage does need to be addressed on the orchard - so there is room to improve this orchard. Contour is dead flat and just a bit further down the road is the harbour so the altitude of this orchard is approximately 9ASML. This one of the prime areas of Katikati for an avocado orchard and ones like this where there is room to add value is becoming very rare.
