Housing

If you’re thinking of moving to South Taranaki, deciding where to live will be no easy task.  Seaside panoramas, surfing hotspots, rural outlooks, mountain views, pleasant urban dwelling, a lifestyle block, quarter acre section, modern townhouse, character villa, - whatever your preference or your budget, the choice is yours. 

From family two-three bedroom properties close to shops and schools, through to multi-million dollar properties or lifestyle blocks with room to run the horse, some sheep for the freezer and room for a garden to feed a family, the prices are favourably competitive with the rest of New Zealand.  If building your dream home is the goal, you can chose from spacious sections in one of our flourishing residential developments. 

 All of these properties come with great lifestyle opportunities, excellent options for singles as well as large families – and no matter which you need or choose, you’ll get great living combined with fabulous recreational activities and exciting festivals, with a wonderful café culture and dining experiences.  And no traffic jams either!
