Price by Negotiation
This spectacular slice of real New Zealand Heartland is home to the long established Ruatiti Highland Fold. A Country Calendar featured property.
22.7810 hectares of hill and rolling land set in the beautiful Ruatiti Valley includes 8 hectares of maturing pine trees. The land is well fenced and all areas are easily accessable with established tracks.
The wonderfully low maintanance, placid Highland Cattle are well suited to this property and provide a turn over that far exceeds many larger properties.
Add to this a wonderfully unique four bedroom home that the owners have lovingly created (much of it hand made) featuring many artistic and interesting features and you have the perfect recipe for a very special and warm family home and/or one that will have no trouble in attracting visitors if one wishes to capitalise on the increasing numbers of tourists who have discovered Ruatiti Valley.
Various purchasing options are available.
The location of the property makes in perfect to capitalise on the extraordinarily fast-growing tourism opportunities that are prevalent in the district.

The owners are offering their property for sale on a land and buildings basis, but have expressed that if someone wished to look at the whole package (ie, a going concern), then they would consider that option.
We are seeking Expressions of Interest in this property before 23 July, 2010.
