Unique High Country Sites For Sale

Unique High Country Sites For Sale

If you fancy establishing a high country estate, you now have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to make your dream come true in the heart of the Southern Alps.

Ten freehold building sites are available for definite sale, either separately or as a complete package, in Grasmere Estate in the Craigieburn Ranges.

All ten sites have alpine and river or lake views and are little more than an hour from Christchurch International Airport, with access off the West Coast Road then a private road.

Simes Limited is marketing the sections and chief executive Layne Harwood describes them as a very impressive investment opportunity which is unlikely to be repeated.

"The Grasmere Estate is a lifestyle subdivision in a spectacular setting," he says. "It overlooks the lake, is on the way to Arthur¹s Pass, near five skifields and a national park."

"The ten sections range in size from 5,393 to 9,827 square metres, with amenities already established. Water is gravity fed from a nearby mountain stream, power, telecommunications and sewers are connected."

The three flat and seven sloping subdivided lots are adjacent to Grasmere Lodge, which is marketed internationally as a high country retreat and mountain spa "where natural splendour and gracious pampering combine".

The area is also recognised as a picturesque background for hiking, ski-ing, horse-riding, mountain biking, trout fishing, water sports and any number of sightseeing trips or scenic flights.

The sale by tender closes on August 30.
