Join the legions of tech billionaire’s snapping up land in New Zealand with this island idyll, located at the very north of the country’s South Island.
Covered with rolling grasslands, paddocks and bush, the 1,280 acre Pepin Island is home to nearly 2,000 sheep and 100 cattle. They belong to an existing farm on the island, which also includes orchards, pine plantations and a boutique eco-tourism project, comprising three cottages and three eco-chalets for commercial tourism opportunities.
Pepin Island is on the market via New Zealand Christie’s International Real Estate for NZD 16m and is seeking a buyer with money and the ambition to match its price tag.
Though connected to the mainland by a narrow causeway, the island feels a million miles away thanks to its rugged landscape and peaceful beach coves. It’s also just a 20-minute drive from nearby Nelson.
