Lake Hood June 2013

Lake Hood is the prime destination for water based activities on the Canterbury Plains.  The purpose built lake is a great destination for a range of recreational uses such as water skiing, wake boarding, dragon boat racing and yachting.  The adjacent residential area offers a selection of high and low density residential and rural residential allotments.  For those seeking a section or home this gives the potential buyer a range of options whether it is an apartment, lifestyle block or your typical residential section – all with the huge range of water and land based recreational facilities right at your back door.

Stage 8
We are proud to advise that the construction of Stage 8 at Lake Hood is complete and the issue of titles is now imminent (anticipated end of June 2013).

Stage 8 is comprised of 22 residential properties with close access to a dedicated boat ramp and reserve areas.

Construction of the 22 residential allotments started prior to Christmas 2012 and was completed in May 2013.  This construction included the excavation of an additional 5 hectares of water area which will be linked to the main lake in the next stage of construction which is anticipated to start in late 2013.

The landscaping for Stage 8 is due to be completed July 2013 and will provide the finishing touches to this portion of development.

However, Stage 8 is a small part of a much larger plan.  Standing on the site and looking west you can see glimpses of Stages 9 and 10 where some of the bulk earthworks have already been undertaken – we are currently in the midst of completing the detailed engineering design for Stages 9-13.

Stage 9
Stage 9 includes the construction of a new entry access road (Lake Hood Drive) from Stranges Road to the Lake House restaurant and this will provide the main spine for the whole development.  Additional amenities will be provided in the form of reserve areas and car park areas to access viewing platforms or recreational areas.  This route will also be the next stage of a cycle track from Tinwald to Lake Hood via Stranges Road through the development and back to the mountain bike track along the Ashburton River.

Sales have been encouraging as people recognise the unique opportunity to live in a place surrounded by such an abundance of recreational facilities, if you haven’t been to Lake Hood recently make a day of it and enjoy the sights, water, bike tracks or take time to indulge at the Lake House restaurant.
