About this listing
Upgrade your lifestyle while funding your mortgage with an enjoyable part-time job nurturing your organic walnut orchard.

Approximately 274m², the home has wonderful design features including use of timber and large windows which give you views to mountains and surrounding trees. The interior is super warm in winter, aided by a large wood burner but is also delightfully ambient on the hottest days. You will find this home is perfect for a family but equally cosy if you are a couple. The home will delight you as will bird life that abounds amongst the garden and trees. The property includes a four bay concrete floored large shed, one bay enclosed.

The orchard is one of the original commercial orchards in Canterbury. 202 trees were planted from 1989 to 1993 and are mainly Rex and Meyric varieties. It is fully irrigated with a computer controlled system and is Bio Gro Certified Organic. Income is generated to an economic level by the orchard and lease of the well-appointed multi use factory set up for food production, leased by Walnuts NZ Co-Operative Ltd.

After 30 years of carefully tending their much loved 4ha property our vendors have finally decided to retire and downsize. This is a unique opportunity to improve your lifestyle while earning a decent income off the land!
