Wedding Business & Unique Garden Wonderland
From its rural beginnings in the 1960s as an unremarkable bush-covered valley and paddocks on approximately 3 acres on the outskirts of Tauranga.
A flourishing seasonal wedding and event venue, Fountain Gardens has been the picturesque location of many happy celebrations. Locals and visitors have experienced this as a magical and unforgettable place to make memories.
The time has arrived for the current owners to pass the guardianship to a new owner who may enjoy sharing with others its current status as a wedding and function establishment. Alternatively, there's scope to reshape the future here in the meandering gardens. Choose the perfect site to build among an exceptional landscape of lush plantings embracing the water lily pond with dazzling fountain, towering native, exotic and established trees, all connected by a series of babbling brooks, pathways, bridges, pavilion, and arbours. With council consent, your dream home could be created in this particularly private and tranquil realm teeming with birdlife.
A large silk-lined marquee with adjoining bar caters for up to 120 guests and the attendant services buildings comprise relocatable office cabins, fully equipped commercial catering kitchen facilities and storage sheds. Large parking and turnaround areas for visiting cars and chartered coaches all pan out at the end of the long bamboo and tree-lined driveway.
The business has strong trusted relationships with a number of associated wedding and function services offering a seamless handover to new owners seeking to continue with this enterprise. The inner Tauranga Harbour, Matakana Island, Mauao and the ocean are minutes away for photo opportunities. An easy 30 minutes from the centre of Tauranga and minutes to the Whakamarama crossroads with the Omokoroa shopping precinct a 10 minute away, Fountain Gardens, 2.5 hour's drive from Auckland is a rare opportunity to fulfil your passion and change your future direction living in a one-of-a-kind environment.
