Options abound: One of the existing building, a 1200 square metre shed, could have many uses. With renewed vigour recorded in the North- land property market at the close of 2012 and a widely tipped flight to the north likely as buyers are priced out of the heated Auckland market, development opportunities are again coming under the spot- light in Northland. Agents in the region are reporting the highest levels of inquiry they ve seen in at least four years. One hour north of Whangarei, a property in two titles totalling just over 6 hectares is for sale with Bayleys. The property, orig- inally set up as a dairy farm in the 1960s before being converted to orch- ard blocks with support- ing packing shed and coolstore facilities, is owned by Martin and Diana Visser, who garnered a groundswell of support for their plan to create a motorhome village on the site back in 2010. Alan Broadbent from Bayleys Kerikeri office says the Vissers got well down the track with the concept before putting it on hold. The plan may still have legs if a laterally- thinking buyer wished to pursue it. Approved plans were in place for what would be the first purpose-built motorhome village in New Zealand. Freehold building sites for villas aimed at semi-permanent residents to own and live in when not touring or travelling overseas, were on the drawing board, Mr Broadbent says. The land has approval for further subdivision and offers multiple pos- sibilities. Approval is currently in place for the first stage of a three-stage subdivision into residen- tial lots of approximately 2000 square metres. Much of the infrastruc- ture for this development is already in place, with some established inter- nal roading, under- ground power and tele- phone and a reliable water supply. A new owner has the options of proceeding with the residential sub- division or retaining a chosen area of land and selling the balance. Two existing dwellings are on the property; a generous two-level, four- bedroom family home with a tidy self-contained flat on the ground floor and an adjacent separate cottage-style workshop/ studio, with approval for conversion into another dwelling. The wild card is the 1200sqm former coolstore/pack-house building with an additional mezzanine area and upstairs accom- modation, Mr Broadbent says. In the original con- cept plans, this building was to have been the lynch pin as it has capacity to store up to 16 motorhomes at any one time or could have appeal as a recreational venue, a covered eques- trian centre, an indoor market or even a train- ing facility. Pakaraka is an his- toric Northland area. The property is near Holy Trinity Church, one of New Zealand s earliest churches. It will be auctioned by Bayleys on February 22, unless sold beforehand. Love without thorns By now most know that Valentines Day grew out of the legend of a Roman priest who performed secret weddings between Roman soldiers and their sweethearts, in defiance of military law. All good stuff, and a fair enough excuse for us to lighten up and be a little more romantic on at least one day of the year. But before you start to think of ways to win your lover, perhaps you should consider what s not a good idea. Playing tricks is not a good idea. Fake promises are even worse. Expecta- tions are high for many, and bursting their bal- loon may have more far- reaching consequences than you thought. Valen- tine rating: CAD/INVIT- ING REPRISALS. A romantic evening in, favourite pizza and a Tarantino movie. Watching wall-to-wall gore might be your idea of entertainment, but it s not everybody else s. The same probably goes for cage fighting, although there may be worrying exceptions. Valentine rating: STU- PID. Calling up your ex. Bound to end in tears and a gin hangover. Val- entine rating: MISERY. Booking the table for two and then saying we both know this isn t working . Valentine rat- ing: PLAIN ROTTEN. Gifting fat-busting fit- ness equipment or a weight-loss programme. It s just another way of nagging and certainly doesn t say I love you just the way you are . Valentine rating: DUMB. Taking her/him some- where where you know your ex is likely to be/ your current partner is likely to be. Valentine rating: SUICIDAL. Sending a card with the word Christmas or Birthday or Condol- ences crossed out. Now that s really going the extra mile! Same goes for wilted flowers. Valentine rating: CHEAP. Getting over-amorous with a workmate. This is not a good career move -- now they know you ve been wanting to hit on them, they will be watching you like a hawk -- or reporting you. Valentine rating: A-W-K-W-A-R-D. Getting his/her name wrong. Oh dear, now you re for it, now you re really for it. Valentine rating: IDIOCY. Saying, I don t believe in all that Valentines b...s.... It s all so commer- cialised. Go on, lighten up, get creative, surprise your- self. You might even enjoy it.
