The main mission of Northridge Estate is to provide the best of city prosperity and opportunity with the peace and tranquillity of the countryside. We envision not just monotonous housing blocks but a connected community of lifestyle blocks and that provides our residents with all the amenities for work, education and leisure. With elevated views and a number of key services and attractions close by, Flat Bush is set to become one of the most up and coming suburbs in Auckland City and we believe that our residential; development should reflect this climb towards the future.
How It All Began – History
Northridge can trace its roots back to 1929 when the Burrills first arrived in East Tamaki. One descendant, Bill Burrill, was born and raised on a local dairy farm with his two siblings, helping care for up to 220 cows at a time.
In 1961, he decided to purchase his own farm, on the land which would later become the Northridge Estate. The farm supplied milk to the local town, Flat Bush, which has upheld its reputation for strong community ties right up to the present day. The school hall hosts a number of local events per year and the Alfriston markets still runs on the first Saturday of each month, selling local food and wares.
After 50 years of 5am rises, it was time for Bill to pursue new ventures. He and his wife Maggie sold the farm and retired in Howick, leaving the land in the care of Viranda Partners Limited.
Since then, Viranda Partners Limited has been carefully planning and collaborating to repurpose the land, serving the greater Auckland community in an exciting new way. Over the next few years, they will build a modern and lifestyle-orientated residential development with the help of McKenzie and Co Consultants Ltd, Murphys Development Limited and Platinum Homes.
Bill Burrill and his family built a fantastic countryside life on Northridge. Now the time has come to shape your own future on this spectacular land.
