About the business
Halstead Farm, B&B and Tourism development opportunity for sale in Dannevirke in the Southern Hawkes Bay.
The owners of this 19.72 Acre farmlet and previous plant nursery on High Street in Dannevirke town are recommending a sale of the combined two properties to facilitate a new development of a B&B, Backpackers and Campervan Park or similar type tourism development.
A great opportunity as the drive in facility that exists would cater well for campervans, off High Street which is part of State Highway 2 where it reputedly has 9,000 to 11,000 vehicles a day passing by. With the former Farmhouse building which is on the Nursery site there could be an easy transition to setting up Campervan Sites with this farmhouse used as the central facilities as well as providing room accommodation for backpackers and other travelling public.
A suggestion to have a few smaller cabin type accommodation units on the premises would also do well for the development but not to forget the farming side of the adventure.
The Farm & House
The farm property is approximately one kilometre from the town centre is an 18.8 acre lifestyle property with a very comfortable and extremely sunny home and beautiful unrestricted peaceful views to the east.
It has 4 sunny double bedrooms each with built in wardrobes. A sunny kitchen with eastern views and excellent cupboard space. A large bright laundry with a double linen cupboard. The hallway also has double storage cupboards.
The lounge has conservatory off it providing a super sunny place to snooze on Sunday afternoons or quietly read a book.
Outside it has an attractive tiled courtyard outdoor relaxation and BBQ area and adjoins a twin carport and garden shed.
The farm and home grounds are very well established with lemon, apples, cherry, chestnut, fig and plum trees. There are very large established trees including maples, magnolia, camellias and rhododendrons with bushes and shrubs, on nice lawns, making an easy care and very relaxing, attractive garden, to be in.
The farm is made up of 8 fenced grazing paddocks, a really great lagoon, fed from one of the farms springs, with resident ducks and geese. There are 5 yard paddocks, and a sheep race. The eastern side of the property is bounded by the clean free flowing Mangatera River.
Pasture has sustained 100 + sheep for many years and has yielded 82 bales of bailage this year and also three years ago.
Outbuildings consist of a 3 bay lock up workshop, twin shed chicken house, and 2 bay implement shed with a small lockup storage shed attached.
I refer to the second block as the Nursery as has been in a past life.
The current set up is an office area consisting of four offices, a board room, amenity area, and storage room plus a retail showroom which opens out to a metalled Yard area with a large area under shade cloth, this is suitable as a display selling area or storage. Plus another feature of the property is a large drive through off street car parking.
There are two glasshouse set up out the back and could be used in the new venture.
The combination of both properties of 19.72 acres- the Farm and the Nursery if converted into a Campervan Park with backpacker and standard motel type accommodation could be a winning combination for a new developer. In walking around the premises of both the farm and the nursery one can see the many design options to convert this property into something well worth its need in Dannevirke town.
The farm and its border with a stream with spring water feeding the small lake as well as the farm paddocks that are productive money earners and with the house and campervan sites overlooking the country side to the east this opportunity would be hard to resist for those seeking to be kept active yet with lifestyle in mind.
