Unique Nelson Campground An Exciting Opportunity

Unique Nelson Campground Exciting Opportunity For Buyers

The well known Maitai Baptist Camp which has for the last half century hosted generations of young Nelsonians, has come on to the market offering a fantastic range of options for keen buyers.

Just seven kilometres from Nelson city, the camp’s 2.8 hectares includes a large flat playing field, mature trees and stands of native bush in a secluded bush and riverbank setting.

The property also includes a spacious hall and large kitchen area with half a dozen self contained cabins, a two-bedroom caretaker’s cottage, and various outbuildings. The camp is currently accessed by pedestrian bridge across the river, although a ford further along provides access for rugged vehicles.

Harcourts Nelson Sales Consultant, Fred Coe said the property is in six titles and lends itself to many different options including continuing to use it as a camping ground, developing a lifestyle retreat or even investigating subdivision.

Mr Coe said, “Nelson is undisputedly one of the most popular places in the country to buy property at the moment. With our fantastic climate and facilities, the Maitai Baptist Camp offers a great chance to live close to a thriving city while enjoying the splendour of native bush.”

The Maitai Baptist Camp will have ‘Open Homes’ over coming Wednesdays and weekends prior to being offered at auction 9 December 2003.
