from the Realtor:
For the past 40 years Gus Evans has been selling plants from his Utauta Street nursery across the railway line in Waikanae. Retirement of a sorts now beckons so they are putting over 4,000 square metres of the nursery land on the market for sale (see map).
Located around 250 metres from the Waikanae railway station and opposite the Waikanae primary school, this 4,042 m2 block of land is located within the residential ‘Focused Infill’ precinct.
This means the allowable housing density can be higher than the normal residential zoning. The land is currently crossleased with their personal home at 10 Utauta Street so they are applying for separate titles for the two properties.
The settlement date is proposed to be no earlier than 10 December 2021 so they have time to sell down their stock, fixtures etc. (and you can have time to do your planning…) plus get the separate titles. Seldom do blocks of land of this size suitable for infill housing come on the market, especially around Waikanae. To allow time for interested parties to undertake their due diligence the property is being sold by way of Deadline Private Treaty on 24 June 2021.
For the old fashioned, this is 1 acre. —Eds
