Lifestyle with passive income possibilities

Set in the heart of North Canterbury's wine country is this 13.9240-hectares of vineyard and flat grassed pasture with extensive facilities for the equestrian enthusiast. This historic boutique vineyard, the first planted in the region (1981) has some of Waipara's oldest vines, producing intensely flavoured premium wines. A 13.9240-hectare property comprising 3.2 hectares planted in vines producing pinot noir, riesling, gewurztraminer, and chardonnay bottled under the property's own award-winning label, Waipara River Estate. Irrigation supply for the vineyard is in place and currently the vineyard tasks and maintenance are undertaken by local contractors. The current owner has invested heavily in renovating and extending the original farmhouse into a boutique accommodation business. Four self-contained suites, studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom, with nightly rates ranging $310-$350. The owner's accommodation is separate from the guest rooms, which have their own kitchenettes, and takes in incredible views to be enjoyed from the spa pool, perhaps with a glass of your own crisp chardonnay! It may suit other businesses however i.e. weddings, wellness retreats etc. So much added value with an extensive chattels list, inside and out. The contemporary and immaculately presented home has an effortless flow to the mature gardens, lending itself to long summer evenings around the pizza oven or a dip in the heated self-cleaning pool complete with changing rooms. An easy commute into the Christchurch CBD, and approximately 10 minutes from Amberley township, this is country living with true town convenience.
