Before they’re taken down, we managed to grab a few shots from the realty listing for one of James Cameron’s recently purchased mega-properties in New Zealand. Taken together, both of the land grabs total over 2,400 acres of gorgeous Middle Earth.
As you can see in the gallery below show, Cameron and his family now own the massive 124-acre Lake Pounui, declared by the lister Bayleys as one of “the finest privately owned natural lakes in the country.”
One neighbor told media that the hillside property featured “uninterrupted views over Lake Pounui and out to the sea beyond, and backed on to forest park land. ‘It’s about as private as you can get,” the source commented.
In a statement released yesterday, Cameron says he fell in love with New Zealand during a visit to the country in 1994; vowing to one day live there himself.
“Now that dream is becoming a reality,” he wrote.
”I grew up working on my grandfather’s farm in Canada and my wife Suzy’s family own a farm in Oklahoma,” he added. ”We want to raise our kids with the values we had when we were growing up, close to the land and with a strong work ethic. We hope we will be accepted as good neighbours and good members of the community in South Wairarapa.”
