Dairy Flat

Planes, rolling hills and fresh pro­duce are the land­marks of this small rural com­mu­nity

Real Estate Outlook - - Location -

The North Shore Aero Club is the big­gest give­away to the lo­ca­tion of Dairy Flat. It’s a pop­u­lar air­field close to the north­ern mo­tor­way and only a short dis­tance to Auck­land. He­li­copters and small planes buzz daily in and out of this air­field. From above, Dairy Flat is a patch­work of lifestyle blocks, farm an­i­mals, duck ponds, trees and ex­pan­sive homes. Some prop­er­ties have hor­ti­cul­tural ac­tiv­i­ties, but most sim­ply en­joy space, pri­vacy and scenic rural views of rolling rural coun­try. The hub of Dairy Flat is ‘Falloon’s Cor­ner’, on the cor­ner of the for­mer State High­way One and Kai­hikatea Flat Rd, which is named af­ter the cor­ner shop of gro­ceries and fruit and veg­gies that has now at­tracted a clus­ter of small busi­nesses of­fer­ing furniture, food, petrol and as­so­ci­ated rural so­lu­tions. Scat­tered fur­ther down the high­way, to­ward Albany is Dairy Flat School, with a huge com­mu­nity hall, the Trot North Trot­ting club, an equine hospi­tal, the North Har­bour Sport and Coun­try Club and the Dairy Flat Ten­nis Club.
