Agency reference


Located in Fernhill and adjacent to Twyford is this large apple block of 36.5 hectares that offers a wealth of options and is totally unencumbered by lease or management contract. The block was impacted by Cyclone Gabrielle however extensive remediation has been undertaken with a mix of fully productive and fallow areas including the stop banks which have been repaired and enhanced.

The orchard is planted in a mix of Royal Gala, Fuji, Pacific Queen plus smaller blocks of Lady in Red, Red Delicious and Dazzle. The trees are predominantly mature and in full production. Ideal for someone looking to secure production with scope for re-development.

The soils are shown as predominantly Class 3 & 4 with pockets of silt and shingle. The free draining soils ensure early and full colour development. There is one central bore for irrigation purposes which is repaired and in full working condition. Maintenance to repair the irrigation system is well underway.

In the centre of the block is a three bedroom two storey home, with the downstairs being constructed of concrete block. The downstairs suffered water damage and the top story was undamaged. Insurance is confirmed for managed repairs, including the septic system in early 2024.

The consented RSE accommodation block has been deemed uninhabitable for sleeping but is currently under review for potential reinstatement. The adjacent ablution block and septic system are in working condition for staff facilities. Adjacent to this is a secure workshop and shade house.

The combined remediation and recovery of the orchard by the vendors and councils has been remarkable. The block was previously marketed prior to the Cyclone and the vendors are motivated to move on as originally planned.

For Sale by Negotiation (plus GST if any)
