How Green Is My Valley...
Are you keen to live close to town and yet have all the benefits and fun of a lifestyle most often found far away? 15 photovoltaic cells complement the two solar panels to power the home including water heating. At times more power is generated than required to run the young four bedroom well insulated brick home so the current owners sell it back to the grid! Fantastic! Plenty of land at nearly 2 acres, (7957m2) for gardens, pets or play. Great for kids on bikes. Home orchard for kitchen bounty! Room for chooks and more. North facing and sited well back from other homes means you are private. Wake to birdsong. Even some town views amidst/over the greenery. Amazing carbon dated ancient swamp kauri kitchen bench opens into family area then deck for entertaining. An attractive property yet likely within the budget of many families, business folk or retirees wanting a bit of space.
Always a popular suburb it is at the entrance to the city for visitors from North. It has excellent schools for all ages and the Bethlehem Shopping Centre offers a supermarket plus wide variety of retail and café-dining experiences.
This leafy suburb enjoys close proximity to Tauranga City Centre and has lovely walkways especially amongst the newer Mayfield area.
Bethlehem has seen significant population growth with census figures showing 4065 in 2001 and 7182 in 2013. There are a range of retirement living options in this suburb.
Tauriko is at the border of Bethlehem heading towards Pyes Pa and The Lakes.
Tauranga is at the heart of a fast-growing and desirable region.
Few regions in New Zealand or the world 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. Tauranga as a city is one of the fastest if not the
fastest growing city in New Zealand. With a mixture of beautiful scenery, great beaches, cafes, restaurants and nightspots not to mention well regarded and award winning schools.
