BUSH, GRAZING, ROCK FORMATIONS AND WATERFALLS ON 30 ACRES 

This 11.7360 ha  lifestyle property is a bush-lovers' dream location.

Elevated high above Upokarau valley this unique property has so much to offer its new owners including; a brown rock quarry, amazing rock formations, running streams, waterfalls, ponds and magnificent stands of native bush 

So much work has already been done by its present owners who have developed over half a kilometer of all-weather roading giving you access to at least two house sites, six grazing paddocks with quality electric fences, a young orchard with fruit and citrus trees and hundreds of trees including pohutukawas, poplars, oaks, magnolias, beech, maple and more.

The present owners have cattle grazing on the land. There are communal stock yards on the estate. 

Soil type is sedimentary and over 200 tons of lime has been spread on the land over the past ten years.  (see soil analysis in documents) 

A tiny-house sleep-out has just been added to the property which has access to water.   Just bring your BBQ and have a cook-out listening to the sounds of your very own waterfall while enjoying the privacy of living in this serene natureland. 

As our summers are getting drier, water is a must on a lifestyle block.  This property has multiple water sources including  gravity-fed and communal pump fed water supply and of course, running streams fed by cascading waterfalls. 

Power is located at the entrance of the boundary of the property.   Pet friendly property - not a kiwi zone. 

This property is part of Orotere Estate - named from Orotere Rock that sits directly opposite the 8 lot subdivision.  All lots share a common access road, stockyards - loading race, and stock water supply.  

Only 15 minutes to boutique shops, restaurants, banks and services in Kerikeri - the largest town in the far north.
