Welcome to the Riverview Estate website. This is a residential subdivision offering a variety of sites, the majority of sites having superb mountain, sea or river views. Our goal is to make this New Plymouth's premier subdivision.
Riverview Estate is located on Mangorei Road in Merrilands, New Plymouth. There are good quality schools, sporting facilities, recreational parks and a shopping centre nearby. It is an easy drive both to the city amenities and the countryside.
We want to share with you our vision for this subdivision and tell you our story about the "Deighton" land.
This is a family farm which has been in our family since 1924. Our grandparents Louis and Emily Deighton farmed this land and raised a family of four daughters and one son. One of these daughters, our mother Thelma, took over the farm and farmed the land until she was 90 years. Thelma loved this land and would often disappear over the farm early in the morning, to return many hours later. We spent our youth climbing supplejacks in the bush and swimming in the magnificent Waiwhakaiho River, making canoes out of roofing iron.
We regard this land as our 'home'. It is a special place for us and we want to share this with you. Our aim has been to complete a well-planned and considered development so you can all also enjoy a part of the uniqueness of this land.
High quality construction materials will be used throughout, mature native bush will be preserved with additional planting and landscaping to be undertaken and protected. The quality of the subdivision will be protected by land covenants, details of which appear on this site.
We want to view this development in future years and be proud of our achievements. We hope you want to become part of this vision and enjoy the land as we have.
John, Ken and Kath Billing
