One of the last available lots at Shotover Country was snapped up at auction on Wednesday.

Property records show vendor Mana Kono purchased the 1038 square metre section, at 18 Toni’s Terrace (pictured), in 2015 for
$279,000.

Originally from Japan, Kono moved to Queenstown in 2010 and subsequently bought the land for one of her sons to build on.

Following a change of circumstances, she decided to sell it instead.

Marketed by Colliers’ James O’Hagan, his colleague, Richie Heap, opened bidding on Wednesday at $600,000 — he sold it under the
hammer 19 bids later for $795,000.
