Avocado orchard enhances a fruitful country life
An outstanding location for an endless list of reasons this property boasts an avocado orchard, a variety of fruit trees, the main home, cottage, greenhouse and orchard shed.
This sunny, north facing, well cared for orchard supports 78 mature avocado trees and 67 young ones, interspersed by a veritable fruit basket; predominantly citrus, also apple, peach, loquat, passionfruit and feijoas.
Most of the younger (over two years old) avocado trees sit in a sheltered paddock with an orange grove one side, gentle hillsides each end, one of which would provide the ideal site for a future new build. Widely spaced trees and ample casuarina shelter belts suggest scope for more intensive planting. A two bay shed with power, and one half enclosed and concrete floored, houses orchard supplies and equipment, including a tractor, most of which will stay with the property.
The existing home sits sunnily on a plateau above the orchard enjoying the lush green outlook and water views which stretch out towards Mount Maunganui. It's a comfortable, modernised 1970s dwelling with generous sun flooded living and dining area facing the deck. Storage, office, and utility areas link the double garage to the home. Solar powered hot water and a 'gentleman's agreement' access to the neighbour's bore are further advantages.
While you savour the peace, appreciate the seasonal income and perhaps plan more improvements, you can garner additional income from a tidy, two bedroom building currently used as accommodation which is currently rented at $350 per week.
An outstanding lifestyle awaits a family or a couple of active relaxers in a popular location near reputable country schools and close to Omokoroa for amenities and coastal access.
