A very well maintained,
large tea estate for sale/lease approx. 45 minutes drive East of Kandy. Currently approx. 700 acres are under tea and maintained. There are 225 workers on the estate and it is located within the intermediate climate zone.
The average altitude is approx. 1000 meters and in average the estate does not have very steep slopes besides a few areas which makes it fairly easy in terms of harvesting and planting. Electricity is in place as well as a good network of roads, although part of the roads need maintenance.
Out of the total of 1520 acres, approx. 700 acres are under tea, while approx. 300 acres are abandoned tea. A further approx. 250 acres are scrub/ forest and contain many of mature trees. Furthermore some areas are planted with Cardamom etc.
Altogether there are 4 water streams running across the estate and two of the streams could easily be dammed in order to produce hydro-power. Bungalow, office-building as well as workers-accommodation are in place. The estate has no tea factory, but an area where one could be built ideally.
The company which is currently maintaining the estate has 45 years remaining on the lease contract with the State Plantation Corporation. Further info on request.
