Te Mata Peak Property

Where family and friends enjoy time together on the slopes of Te Mata Peak, Havelock North, NZ

Lifestyle Sections For Sale

We acquired this wonderful nine acre property in 2014 in a huge state of neglect after the elderly owner was unable to take proper care of the large acreage.

After determining that the only way to clean the property up was hard graft and goats, we and the goats got stuck in.

Two years on and our menagerie has grown and our weeds and wilding pines have deminished leaving us with a delightful property swarming with relaxed and happy animals and birds. The goats have multiplied, the pheasants and quail chicks have hatched and native tui, kereru and bellbird abound, often flying in to have a bath in the birdbath on our deck.

We considered many options for our unique property, so close to the village of Havelock North and on the lower reaches of popular Te Mata Peak. This 400 metre local icon is surrounded by Te Mata Park and is home to beautiful walks and biking trails. It is in the top 10 tourist attractions in New Zealand and used daily by Hawke's Bay residents for recreational activities.

Eventually we realised that the best option for our property was to subdivide and allow other families the chance to build, live in and enjoy this unique area.

The subdivision process is progressing well with two north/west facing 0.8 hectare (two acre) sites identified and geo-technical reports successfully completed. We are slowly working on selectively clearing trees to open up the north-west vistas.

Hastings District Council have approved the subdivision subject to the building sites being formed and waste water treatment being confirmed. The two sections will be officially on the market shortly. If you are interested in viewing the sites and wish to discuss time frames, prices, or any other aspect please use the "contact" link at the bottom of this page.
