Southern Icelandic residential land is now being marketed as a great investment opportunity in Iceland for families, individuals and business investors to construct houses, or build small farms for keeping domestic animals, small-scale land cultivation or other related activities.
The new community is called Tjarnabyggd; located 55km from Reykjavik, it offers the opportunity to invest in solid, fertile land in a peaceful area surrounded by magnificent nature and close to a large bird conservation reserve.
Tjarnabyggd covers 600 hectares, divided into 61 clusters. Each cluster is made up of six plots of about 10.000 m2. Individual plots may be bought as well as more clusters depending on the size of land investors wish to acquire. The clusters are separated by walkways and 5m wide riding tracks.
Activities such as farmhouse accommodation for tourists, horse riding, and horticulture are all very well suited to the region with fertile soil and diverse riding tracks and good pasture ideal for those keeping horses.
The plots of land available for investment in Iceland at the Tjarnabyggd site range from 1 – 6 hectares in area. There is no heavy industry on the south coast of Iceland, the tap water is of excellent quality and the land is provided with communal geothermal heated water – for home heating and baths, but also great for any hot tubs or greenhouses.
Tjarnabyggd is considered a suburb, just 4km from Selfoss. Selfoss is the major settlement in the region and offers a wide range of services, such as shops, post office, bars, tradesmen and companies providing technical services.
