A traditional Kiwi caravan, cabin, and camping space midway between Nelson and Blenheim has been placed on the market.

The Mt Richmond Estate land, buildings and business, at 7090 State Highway 6 in the Rai Valley, are being marketed for sale by negotiation through Bayleys Nelson.

The property features in Bayleys’ latest Total Property portfolio magazine.

Mt Richmond Estate holiday park is a configuration of self-contained luxury cottages, campervan plots, and caravan sites — sustained by a cafe/restaurant with adjacent conference and event-hosting facilities.

The business sits on 4.14ha of rural-zoned land, with allowance for a mix of commercial accommodation and residential dwellings.

The land comprises two titles, and is surrounded by native and exotic forests — with a sealed access road running through the middle of the amenities and buildings.

Leisure amenities on the property include a spa pool, tennis court, basketball hoops, croquet lawn, and DVD library.

Bayleys Nelson salespeople Gill Ireland and Grant Baxter say the business represents a life-changing opportunity in one of the South Island’s most picturesque natural environments with a blend of home, income and lifestyle.

“Reinvigorated with substantial investment by the current owners, the property now represents a unique proposition for a new owner to acquire and unlock the further potential this remarkable property and location have to offer,” Ireland says.

Building infrastructure on the property totals some 1200sq m, and includes a pair of three-bedroom homes for the owner/manager and staff, or as part of the accommodation pool, as well as a variety of implement sheds and workshops.

The two-bedroom units come with their own bathrooms and kitchens.

Baxter says Mt Richmond Estate holiday park has capacity to operate as a commercial accommodation venture during the busy summer months, or as a function and events venue at other times of the year.

“The entire facility can be booked out to host private gatherings.”
