Kaipara Block Offers Income Potential With A Lifestyle
A bare block showcasing a blank canvas for home building and horticulture while providing a coastal lifestyle near Dargaville is attracting strong interest in a vibrant rural Northland real estate market.
The 7 ha Redhill Road property in Te Kopuru offers buyers the opportunity to capitalize on the district’s developing water reservoir project for high value horticultural production.
The easy contour property is currently operated as a pasture block. But seller Sam Biddles says the potential for horticultural development has been increased, thanks to the nearby Kaipara Water Supply Project, which is part of the larger Te Tai Tokerau Reservoir project that includes four large dams around Northland. .
The Kaipara project is expected to have the first dam commissioned in the coming months, and with it the potential to irrigate 4,000 ha of land specifically for horticultural purposes.
“This area has always had a lot of potential for horticultural development, with a good contour, good soil and a great location, especially for growing avocado,” says Sam.
Water security has always been a constraint, and one that the program will obviously mitigate and provide multiple cultivation options on free-draining soils.
The property comprises an adjoining block of 1 ha offering superb potential as a home site with stunning views of the neighborhood and the frontage to the road.
“Right now in Northland there is a real shortage of good quality small blocks, and we are responding to a very high demand from interested Auckland buyers looking to escape the rigors of big life. cities. An interested buyer can choose to buy both blocks, using the larger one to found a horticultural development, and build their dream home on the smaller block, ”says Catherine Stewart, Bayleys agent.
The proximity to Dargaville just 15 minutes and an hour’s drive to Whangarei only adds to the appeal of the neighborhood lifestyle and the ability to combine working from home with the demands of the office.
The investment from one of the country’s largest avocado farms, Linwood Nurseries, also underscored the district’s recognized potential for future avocado development, where land values remain realistic compared to most other traditional New Zealand horticultural districts.
The property is due to be auctioned on November 17th.
