The Orchard Garden Café & Function Centre
Iconic Central Otago (N.Z.) Property, Business, & Lifestyle Opportunity

We are proud to present this unique property and family-run business; offered for sale for the first time in 33 years. During that time the owners have been able to enjoy a comfortable lifestyle and raise a family; but now it’s time to transition to a new stage of life.

This substantial country garden, maze, café, and function centre is superbly located close to the tourist haven of Clyde, in the hub of the bustling Central Otago region with idyllic vineyards, orchards, bike trails and outdoor adventures.

The core business is currently a function venue – primarily weddings and events – in what has been aptly described as “an oasis among the often-barren brown landscape of the region.”

Formerly an orchard, with some of the remaining trees still providing structure in the gardens and wonderful photo opportunities. The Orchard Garden has evolved to being a versatile, multi-faceted property including:
• 3.27 Ha freehold land featuring lush, green foliage and significant improvements
• Easy signposted access for walkers and bikers directly from the Central Otago Rail, via a tree-lined avenue, with vehicle access from Dunstan Road
• Cafe, featuring the original mud brick walls of the old packing shed, with a capacity o
• The ‘Shed’ and the ‘Old Tractor Shed' that can seat up to 180 or 40, respectively (consented for up to 200pax)
• The South Island’s largest hedge maze and smaller canvas maze
• Extensive ‘Grand English style’ gardens with huge borders and walkways, clearings, stone-walls, hedges, aviaries, summerhouse, ponds and a kids sized mini-golf
• Spacious, modernised 3-bdrm home (approx. 200m2) with a large deck and in-ground 10m x 4m swimming pool.

There may also be an opportunity for further subdivision, subject to proposed re-zoning of the land into higher-density.

Continue to develop the business potential or easily convert the property back into a substantial private lifestyle and home with ample storage space for hobbies, workshops and garaging.

This is genuine once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to secure what is arguably a priceless, truly unique property in one of New Zealand’s most desirable regions.

The Orchard Garden Café & Function Centre is offered for sale by Deadline Treaty, with offers due by 4pm, Friday 12th November 2021. The vendor reserves the right to consider and/or accept prior offers.

Serious buyers should contact the broker for the CA and further information.
