About this listing
***COLLAPSED SALE*** Rarely available on the market, this property is an exciting opportunity for those with a horticultural interest to secure an established mixed berry business on a lifestyle block centrally located to Christchurch, Rolleston and the market it services. The property also comes with a modern, 6 year old home of approximately 330m2 and has a Rateable Valuation of $1,290,000.

Established horticulture business currently producing a combination of gooseberries and blueberries for both local and international market. Blueberry production has been in the region of 11 ½ - 12 tonne of spray free blueberries while the gooseberries have yielded between 2-4 tonne in the past couple of seasons. The business is supported by an impressive amount of infrastructure which includes an onsite water storage pond, full overhead irrigation/frost fighting system, a well with consented water take, bird protection netting for blueberries and a fully automated grading, packing and labelling machine.

A commitment from the vendor to strengthen the quality of the product is reflective in the new initiatives implemented in the past 12 months, including;
- chilling of the product within hours of being picked to ensure lifespan and quality of the product and to maximise efficiency of the packing process
- automated computerised block irrigation system which allows easy management of irrigation around optimal pick times for the berries, thereby not compromising fruit quality
- tailored soil quality programme for each individual berry block - a commitment to improve the soil specifically for the needs of both blueberries and gooseberries. 2 tonne of lime has been applied to the blueberry blocks in the past year with intent for the same amount to occur in 2017.
This business is located on 4.1480 hectares of land ideally located within close proximity to Christchurch City.

The homestead on the property comprises a modern four-bedroom family home whose design has been meticulously planned with high standard finishes and extras that set the home apart from others. Bedrooms are all generous size with a modern tiled ensuite and generous walk in robe in the master, while the master and two of the remaining rooms access the outdoor verandah and garden area. An open plan kitchen area overlooks the family room and flows seamlessly to the outdoor entertainment area. A separate dining room formalises family times while the large separate second lounge is configured as a media and entertainment area, complete with projector and large screen, inbuilt speakers, bar and outdoor access to BBQ and spa area. With a separate internal generously fitted laundry, personal gym area and extras such as the internal vacuum system, ducted heating and log burner on wet back, all ensure comfortable family living.

This is a unique property, rarely do you find an opportunity to secure such a well-appointed home on an established lifestyle, combined with an established business so close to Christchurch city.
