Farm lifestyle in city precinct

To be auctioned by Bayleys, 239 Burtt Road in Drury is well positioned to offer the best of rural living, with an unprecedented level of access to urban amenities to the north and the south of the property.

Bayleys agent Ian Buchanan says the district has experienced an exceptional level of growth in recent years, with lifestyle blocks and housing developments featuring strongly, and Burtt road offers buyers a choice on how they may choose to capitalise on this growth.

“The ability to move in and start living a rural lifestyle is here from the get-go, with little needing to be done. Meantime the proximity to developments going ahead in Paerata and Drury mean the potential does present itself for future development opportunities,” he says.

The pastoral property has been faithfully farmed with a commitment often only found on larger commercial-sized operations, and the departing owner leaves it with farm assets in good condition, including water reticulation and fencing.

“It has been run as a dry stock property with cattle and all fencing is a mix of seven and nine wire, running an electric fence system through the 20 paddocks, served by a very good raceway.”

The property includes its own deep well and pumped water supply and a useful haybarn located at one end of the farm.

Aesthetically the Burtt road property presents itself as an attractive land title, with a gentle contour featuring well established trees and a small pond amid the foot of the sloped contour.

The 300 square metre home built in 1995 represents a well-built, spacious home befitting the property’s size, offering an expansive open plan living environment to capitalise on its generous landscaped section that includes an inground pool and established trees.

A stand of mixed native trees planted behind the home provide ideal shelter from the south. It includes five generous bedrooms and an office with three car garaging and internal access.

“The property’s proximity to those key growth nodes within the district that include both residential and commercial development makes it a very easy place to enjoy the rural lifestyle, while still having access to urban amenities,” says Ian Buchanan.

He points to the continuing growth prospects for the region as offering an ideal land banking potential, given the district’s inclusion in the Auckland City region with transport links and district improvements included within the city’s longer-term plans.

“Meantime it is possible to move in and enjoy a farming lifestyle off a property that is a viable scale, without being too big, you could continue to maintain a job or business within the city.”
