In an optimum Opotiki location set apart by its frost-free nature, this 3.38 ca ha kiwifruit orchard with 2.15 ca ha of first year gold and 1.23 ca ha of mature G3 is already punching above its weight, the first-year fruit well exceeding expected yields, promising a bumper crop for the new owner and plenty of future growth to realise. The six blocks of well sheltered laden vines are in excellent condition with good agbeam structure, a big four-bay Total Span shed with power serving the orchard. In the twenty years of current ownership the orchard has never experienced frost after bud break. The orchard's biggest year produced 15,600 size 32 green trays per ha, way above industry average for green production at that time, evidence of the superior qualities of the micro climate. The five-year green average was 14,500 per ha.
The 4.5927 ha property is beautifully sited above Opotik's Hukawai Beach. The attractive four-bedroom home enjoys outlook to White Island though a chink in the shelter, with peeps of Whale Island from the upper level. Expansive dual living opens to a slate patio and pool, a massive 'west wing' room adds options for teens or hobbies. New bathrooms and double glazing were installed in 2015, new carpet and upper cladding in 2016.
This is an orchard that promises good returns for the investor, the satisfaction of watching the yields increase under your husbandry and a rewarding lifestyle with all the recreational opportunities on this unspoiled coastline and hinterland.
