The Pods

Home & Income - Surfdale Auckland

Since 2013 ‘The Pods’ have housed many of the Island’s migrant workers and lower-income families. The current owners have faithfully worked to improve the land and foster a sense of community, and in doing so, they have generated an impressive income stream. Sadly their time has come to move on and release what is an incredibly unique and unusual property to the market. The generous ‘double site’ 2347m2 (approx) offers a massive road frontage and a clear, essentially flat site with a terraced native bush slope that provides a beautiful backdrop and huge capacity for the beefy sceptic system dripline.

The four polyethylene pods were consented and constructed on a large building ‘deck’ foundation which offers plenty of scope for future development. In their current configuration, one pod is a communal kitchen and dining area, the second is a one bedroom ensuite studio, the third and fourth offer a multi-room configuration, that includes a double bedroom, office or single room, loft and storage space, as well as a separate bathroom and generous living room.

In addition to the pods, there are two large relocatable ‘Chalets’ which each offer studio type accommodation, a variety of outbuildings including an ‘Office’ with communal laundry and toilet facilities, huge carport with storage and water catchment. Shipping container, woodshed, auxiliary buildings, pizza oven, 50,000L of water tanks, you name it, it’s here – seeing is believing.

What all this means is, that depending on your objectives, there are a variety of potential ways this property could be further utilised: community housing and lodgement, a landholding ripe for further development, an impressive income stream, a foundation for a relocatable home or wherever your creativity takes you.

The property must be sold, and the underlying building blocks represent an outstanding opportunity. For more information or to make an appointment to view, please contact David Palfreyman.
