Country oasis brims with opportunity



If you’re looking for a lifestyle block with space for horses, horticulture, and all your hobbies, 58 Equestrian Lane, Bridge Pa, provides space for the perfect country lifestyle.

With large sweeping lawns and palm trees to create a country oasis, the 7.87ha property offers a grand four-bedroom home with a separate cottage, saltwater pool, two sheds, and nine paddocks. 

The property is being marketed by Ray White Hastings & Havelock North agent Connie Cawood on behalf of the vendors Gregory and Catherine. 

“58 Equestrian Lane is a unique lifestyle property of prime flat land with water consents. It is just minutes from Hastings and State Highway 2. Next door are two fabulous golf courses, Hastings Aerodrome and Hawke’s Bay Airport is only a 15-minute drive.” Ms. Cawood said. 

“Few properties offer such a multitude of options, with nine paddocks with drinking troughs and irrigation that is great for horses and a stock loading ramp that caters for cattle and livestock. 

“Horticulture can also be an option as the property is in an area that grows rocket apples, asparagus, grapes, lucerne, and crops. 

“For those seeking enormous shedding or car enthusiasts, there are two 180sqm sheds with a high stud. 

“The grand home boasts a state-of-the-art kitchen and a large inground saltwater pool plus integral garaging for five cars. 

“A separate one bedroom self-contained cottage can be perfect for family, guests or Airbnb.” 

After living in the home for more than two decades, Gregory and Catherine said they had loved living in the home, but had decided to sell after purchasing a motor yacht to explore the coast of New Zealand. 

“It’s close in proximity to town and very central to most things. It affords quiet country living on a no-exit road with great neighbours – it feels very safe,” Gregory said. 

“We have developed the property for our specific uses and lifestyle, with extra garaging for our hobbies and small business use, plus there’s plenty of room to storehouse ‘stuff’ inside and outside in the shedding areas. 

“The home is very comfortable with easy living and flow, and the air-conditioning and pool have been fantastic in the hot weather.  

“Catherine has had an enjoyable time raising young cattle and growing them over many years, plus the enjoyment of raising her pet livestock as well. 

“It will be very hard to vacate as we have many features on the property that are hard to replicate and we will miss them very much. 

“We have enjoyed 23 years here and have decided to refocus to allow us to travel within New Zealand.” 

The property is being sold by deadline sale closing on March 23 at 2pm unless sold prior.
