About this Business for sale in Canterbury

Lifestyle, Income and Development Opportunity

New to the market is this beautiful and unique home with an income opportunity. This versatile lifestyle block of approx 4.7-hectares of land, with associated improvements, is located on the outskirts of the North Canterbury town of Amberley.

The main home is a two-level barn style dwelling with verandas and outdoor space, built in 1996. It features a large open plan living area with a mini kitchenette, bathroom and two bedrooms.  Upstairs features an open plan kitchen dining and living room with two double bedrooms and a beautiful bathroom, and for heating, a very effective log burner with wetback. The dwelling’s floor area is approx. 218 square meters.

There is also a modern, spacious 3 bay shed with workshop and two plant nursery shade houses, approx. 210 square meters each.

Other improvements to this lifestyle living include 3 phase power, general site development, irrigation for the nursery and sheltered areas associated with the nursery business. Currently, a small area is rented on a monthly basis to another nursery enterprise for $350 per month.

The owner also runs a plant nursery business from the property which includes stock of about $100,000 at retail price and cash earnings of approx. $50,000 per annum to the owner. 

The property has extensive, well-established planting, trees and shelter with a consented well. The well is about 72 meters deep and is connected to E-can for monitoring, as it is regarded as one of the clearest water wells.

Amberley is the main town of the Hurunui District and 50 kms from Christchurch City. This property is only minutes from the beach and the Amberley township. There is a school bus from the gate for Rangiora High School and a bus for Amberley School.  The township is a busy rural service centre with an impressive range of cafes, shops, childcare centres, restaurants, pubs and a suburban shopping centre. There are also busses running daily from Amberley to Christchurch City.

Why is this lifestyle block so special?

  • The property borders the latest residential development.
  • The property is on town sewer.
  • The vendor has been told the water well is strong enough to provide water for about 200 houses.
  • The vendor feels that the property certainly has the potential for future residential subdivision/development.
  • The vendor has spoken to town planning and was told that a second dwelling can be built on the property.
