Historic Arahina - function venue and land


Wonderful opportunity and potential abound for those looking for an exciting challenge in Rangitikei. Situated in a town popular for its central location in the lower North Island, Arahina is for sale for the first time in 20 years.
Set in parkland grounds with mature trees, this stunning property could appeal to many, with its big bonus of residential zoning of a separate title of bare land having potential for intensive residential subdivision.
Arahina will be remembered by thousands of Girl Guides who went to training camps there over the years before 1999. The original Queen Anne-style homestead was built in 1919, with many other ancillary buildings, including a variety of accommodation blocks, manager’s residence and an auditorium added by GirlGuiding NZ. The buildings are all located on the title that has a Heritage NZ Historic Area classification.
The property has been the perfect location for the present owner’s conferences and other events, but now Arahina is ready for a new chapter.
Key features:
– 7.9560ha of residential land on multiple titles within town boundary
– Dual road frontages
– Option to redevelop
– Possibility to refurbish for other business options, such as functions, private training, retirement village
