178 Batty Road, Karaka, is a 10-minute drive to the motorway interchange at Papakura and Drury, with Pukekohe and services nearby. It takes around 38 minutes to Auckland CBD in normal traffic, with Hamilton being around an hour's drive. The property has been developed with a good-sized home, a business building, and a well-established mandarin orchard with 2,200 Satsuma mandarin trees. Approximately 300 square meters of the house has six bedrooms, four bathrooms, a kitchen, dining, living room, two laundries, a two-car garage and a unique garden surrounding the house. Also, there's a 200 square meter business building with a...
workshop, office, two flexible rooms, bathroom, and kitchen with built-in oven/gas cooktop, refrigerator, washing M/C and benchtop/cabinetry. The rental income appraisal for the house and workshop is $105,000 annually. 1,700 Satsuma trees have matured in the past 6 years, while the remaining 500 have matured in the last 4 years. The initial harvest of Satsuma mandarin was partly achieved in May/July 2023 with a satisfactory result. Satsuma mandarins have recently become very popular due to their flavoursome taste and ease of peeling. The potential annual production from each Mandarin tree would be approximately 100 kg on average when 10 years grown or more. This would be worth an estimated $600,000 in gross earnings per annum based on a farm-gate price of $3 per kg. The maintenance of these trees is relatively simple, easy, and inexpensive compared to others once they are grown for more than 5 years. The property comprises 9 hectares of farmland with Satsuma mandarin orchards, additional farmland, and improvements, and 6.5 hectares of conservation covenant with native bush with picturesque scenery of nature. Sufficient bore water is available for the house, building and farmland.
