What an opportunity!
Just a minute's stroll from the Motueka river and some of the world's finest trout fishing and a 5 minute drive from retail shops, schools, cafes and restaurants, this unique, 13.99 hectare property offers an opportunity for development and a choice of lifestyles. It will appeal to wine lovers, lifestyle farmers, equestrians and those with an interest in tourism and a wide range of people due to its versatility. Located in the Motueka Valley, the sunny, sheltered property comprises a modern vineyard producing a commercial crop of pinot noir and sauvignon blanc grapes and two large fenced paddocks, currently grazing sheep. A solidly constructed, two level Red Shed, with a huge, 220 square metre workshop at ground level, contains an office, kitchen and bathroom facilities, with vehicle access at both ends.
The 95sqm upper level comprises a huge, open-plan living room and dining area, a kitchen, two bedrooms and a dual access ensuite, with toilet. Wide bi-fold glass doors, flanked by double French doors, in the living area and master bedroom stack open to a 40sqm timber deck and outdoor dining area, creating a spacious environment for indoor/outdoor living and entertaining. Timber railing balustrades enclose the deck and there is a lockable gate, at the head of the exterior stairs. Designed by John McDougall and built in 2001 as a vineyard facility, it was planned to erect a new home on the property, with the option of developing the existing living area as a cafe or restaurant. This would also be well suited to bed and breakfast or home-stay tourist accommodation. The property faces north to enjoy all-day sun and breathtaking views over lawns, bordered by espaliered pears, gardens and rows of grapevines, extending towards Mt Arthur, Mt Campbell and the Western ranges. It is an ever-changing landscape, which can alter dramatically from a glorious sunrise to a spectacular Nelson sunset.
