The pictures tell a wonderful story of the serenity and beauty nestled here in the Hook Bush landscape. Sheltered in a wrap around bush clad valley, you can listen to the Hook River as it meanders past the boundary on two sides. Kereru (wood pigeons), bell birds, tūī and falcon plus many smaller native birds abound in and around this Freehold property.

Don't take our word for it, come and view for yourselves. Vistas up to Mt Studholme and Mt Micheal add to the sheltered nature of this property. Native trees such as Tōtara pierce the bush and make the perfect backdrop for the growing and selling of plants from the Nursery - named as "Hook Bush Nurseries". What better lifestyle than a productive Nursery growing both native and perennial plants. There’s a great opportunity to expand both the retail outlet on the property and the wholesale side of the business.
Presently the vendors have an array of loyal retailers across the South Island who pick up from the Nursery on a regular roster. A full list of the clients and the financials are available to approved purchasers.

The stone home nestled into the hill takes serenity to a new level. A warm, north facing, open plan home has a 102 sqm floor plan (approx) and consists of 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. There are several hundred rhododendrons and other flowering trees, an orchard and chickens thrown in with this package.
Some of the many features include:
- 5 Tunnel Houses
- 3 Shade Houses
- 2 Propagating Sheds
- 3 bay Implement Shed
- Reliable irrigation system controlled by cellphone
- An easy drive to Timaru (30 mins)
- Easy drive (15 mins) to Waimate township
- Primary school bus at the gate.

The Vendors are limiting the times available for door sales but new owners could change this. Door sales are retail sales and a good opportunity to grow the local trade. Time has proven that this location is in a fantastic position to propagate and grow plants and it's been a successful business for over 25 years.
