Chinese tycoon blows NZ$7.5 million to buy private New Zealand island as 'a toy'
土豪妈妈在新西兰买岛送给女儿当玩具


据外媒报道,近日,一名中国女富豪花费750万新西兰元(约3477.4万人民币)收购新西兰一处风景优美的小岛Slipper Island。她的女儿称,妈妈很喜欢这个小岛,因此要买下来送给自己“当玩具”。

Slipper Island位于新西兰北部,距离科罗曼德半岛的东海岸线约4公里。其总面积为224公顷,这次销售区域为217公顷,长度约为2.7公里,最大宽度约为1.8公里。小岛上有绵延的农场,在它的西部有柔软的沙滩,东部有陡峭的悬崖。

岛上的住宿设施包括两处主要寓所以及4处独立的北美平房式客屋,所有房子都能直通沙滩,可以看到美丽的海景以及科罗曼德半岛的海岸线。

Privately aiding in China's island hopping expansion, a Chinese tycoon and developer has put up NZ$7.5 million (35 million RMB) to purchase one of New Zealand's most exclusive privately owned islands, or as she likes to call it, her "toy."

The purchaser, Wendy Weimei Wu, officially lists her occupation has "housewife," but she also has a string of directorships in property investment companies, according to the New Zealand tabloid news website Stuff.co.nz. In 2010, the "publicity shy" Wu made the biggest private home purchase of the year when she bought an historic mansion in an affluent Auckland suburb for NZ$15 million.

Slipper Island is located 4 km off the coast of the Coromandel Peninsula of New Zealand's North Island. The sale involves about 217 hectares of land on the 224-hectare island, an area that includes six houses, stunning beaches and an airstrip.

Her daughter, Vivenne Zhuo, a real estate agent, told reporters that that the island is "a toy for her" and that she just loves it. Zhuo added that they are still trying to figure out what they will do with her mother's newest plaything.



The sale of the island has reportedly divided the siblings of the Needham family that had owned the land for the last 45 years. Stuff.co.nz reports that many of the siblings did not want to sell; however, Liz Needham, a 61% shareholder, did want the deal. Some of the siblings now say they are distraught over the loss of their family's legacy, while others worry about the possible destruction of the island's history.

The island is currently a popular spot for tourists and school campers. If you want to check it out, farmhouse villas on the island range from NZ$250-$750 per night. Maybe you should wait, though, and see what sort of improvements Wu makes.

According to the real estate agent, the transaction contract has been signed. Now they are in the process of doing due diligence, which should take about a month. So you might have missed out on this bargain, but don't worry, there are always deals out there to be found.
