It's been many years since I drove up Prescott Road. I've noticed over the years more houses appearing up on the ridge but was surprised, when I ventured up there on Monday, at just how many homes are there now. The homes look to be standing on small acreage, a few acres or so. On one side of the road there are fabulous views over farmland, Ruakaka township, and out to sea.
I looked up land for sale around this area and got a reality check. $285,000 for 1.43 hectacres (about 3 acres) bare land. That's a very expensive view, don't you think?
