Strategically located in the South Wairarapa just a short walk from Greytown’s town centre, the former Murphy’s Orchard site was purchased in 2018 in partnership with Craig Percy. TUMU oversaw a private plan change in tandem with a resource consent application, which saw approval for the development successfully granted in 2019.

Set amongst 13.8ha of mature trees and landscaped grounds, the village masterplan includes 180 villas, a 60-bed care facility, and “the lodge” a 1,350sqm communal building providing significant amenity for residents including a lounge and bar area, indoor swimming pool and gymnasium, and a café.

Architecturally-designed, the village references the region’s heritage through classic features such as weatherboard cladding, gabled ends, covered patios, and long run roofing. Sustainable low impact design elements have been incorporated throughout the village in the form of grass swales, raingardens, and wetland areas. Many of the original fruit trees have been retained and add to the character of the village.

Construction commenced in 2020 with stage 1 (71 villas) expected to be completed by the end of 2023.
