This quality 4.68-hectare Oropi property combines a convenient location, an attractive residence, extra accommodation, and a profitable kiwifruit orchard; a must to view!
The orchard development features Hayward variety kiwifruit planted on gently sloping land with good aspect. The orchard has been developed primarily into a strip-male setout on steel pergola structures. The productive area being farmed at present is 2.71 canopy hectares, however, the titled area is 2.5 canopy hectares. The additional 0.21 canopy hectares is leased from the local authority until such time that the land is required.
The orchard features very good access for harvest loadout and orchard machinery operation, plus shedding for storage. The management of the orchard is first class, which is demonstrated by exceptional production history with a 3 -year average of 36,772 trays (13,569 trays/ha).
The attractive residence is positioned on an elevated site, taking advantage of sweeping views across the Waimapu stream, rural countryside, and north to the city, and Mt Maunganui. The single level residence benefits from the permanence of brick/cedar cladding and aluminium joinery while a spacious interior features an open-plan kitchen, dining/family area with Fijian Kauri cabinetry and timber sarking. An adjoining conservatory and separate lounge room provides extra living spaces, while the Kent style woodfire is ideal for cosy winter nights.
There is plenty of room for guests or family with four bedrooms, an ensuite, and separate bathroom with ablutions. The spacious carport, double garage and large high-stud garage/shed are perfect for storage, extra vehicles or hobbies. A real bonus is the fully self-contained 1-bedroom flat/accommodation; ideal for a dependant relative, or when extra guests come to stay.
Furthermore, as the city grows, this property should provide opportunity for development in time to come. Call or email to view today.
