This is an opportunity to live and work from home. This unique 3.27ha property is located on Babylon Coast Rd on Northlands west coast and is elevated to give you great views of the surrounding farmland, bush and ocean.
The owners are retiring after 10 years spent taking a scrub covered piece of farmland and turning it into the home and business it is today. The business specialises in NZ native and coastal hardy plants and currently 90% of the seed for the plants that are grown are eco sourced from the property or surrounding environment. Plants are grown on platforms utilising vegetation and constructed wind breaks for protection. Plus there are shade houses and tunnel houses for seedlings and more vulnerable plants. Plants are sold from seedlings through to PB 95 size. There is a good water source from a bore on the property which is pumped to a tank or reservoir pond and is then irrigated throughout the nursery.
The house on the property was built in 2009, with three double bedrooms, large office, family bathroom plus ensuite to master bedroom, combined kitchen and dining, separate lounge with a single garage and carport. The fully lockable four bay pole shed is used for the business and has concrete floors throughout and three phase power.
The business is being sold as a Going Concern with business assets and plant stock available to purchase and currently employs three part time staff plus temps when needed. The loyal customer database and supplier network will be made available to the purchaser and there is significant year-on-year sales growth with room to expand the nursery. With all the hard work done, and with the planting season underway sales will be strong so the time to get in is now. While previous Nursery experience would be advantageous the current owners have proved what a "can do" attitude and a willingness to roll up one's sleeves can achieve in making this business successful. The vendors are available to help support the new purchaser through the start-up period.
