Located in Conders Bend, an area well known for producing premium wine grapes, this appealing 12 hectare vineyard property featuring an attractive home in a streamside setting offers the ultimate Marlborough lifestyle.
Featuring three varieties and established in 1993, the vineyard provides best quality grapes, highly valued and eagerly sought by several prominent Marlborough wine companies. With free draining soils, a low risk of frost and abundant underground water, production is reliably good. Grape supply and lease arrangements can be terminated after vintage 2020 but there is continued interest from current companies. If it was of interest to a new owner, the vendor would consider renting the home for a period.
The four bedroom, three bathroom, two storey residence designed by David Brocherie makes the most of stunning views over a streamfed pond and established vineyard while the Richmond Range provides an attractive, ever changing backdrop. Clever use of windows, skylights and glass produces a warm, light and airy atmosphere around the kitchen and multiple living spaces while the choice of exposed timber and robust materials offer comfort and security. Special features include a freestanding bath with a view and an underground wine cellar to satisfy any discerning connoisseur.
The stream and pond boast riparian rights while the easy care garden enjoys integrated irrigation, mature trees, orchard trees and a glasshouse. Initially built to construct a boat, a large 18m x 7.5m lockable shed with concrete floor, 4.8m stud and 3 phase power, along with a 12m x 7.8m shed, offers the opportunity to store own equipment, make money storing others or set up production in one form or another.
This is an extremely attractive proposition for anyone looking to secure a source of good quality grapes and an enviable lifestyle in New Zealand's sunniest region.
