As I’ve grown older I’ve realised that my biggest dream in life isn’t to go to the moon or find true love, I think I’d be set if I could secure a huge fuck off piece of land in the picturesque mountains of New Zealand so I could party my heart out.
As luck would have it, a gigantic piece of land formerly used to house mine workers is currently available in New Zealand, so grab a group of mates and cough up roughly $2.5 mil and you’re on your way!
The Lake Waitaki village has actually been listed for over 2 years, but it wasn’t until the place got a bit of media attention that people started to realise that they could actually own an entire village and started bidding.
However, no one has been keen to pay the asking price of $2.5 million, and as of now, the current owner is happy to keep staying there.
It’s no surprise why, the property consists of a 585 square-metre refurbished main lodge with owners’ accommodation, reception area, billiards room, formal lounge, and nine-car garaging. In addition, there are eight three-bedroom houses and a cafe/bar with rimu and mahogany detailing and a full commercial kitchen.
On top of that, you get to leave in New Zealand’s iconic countryside, which in my humble opinion is worth at least a couple of million out of the asking price.
