Investing in land property in Iceland has never been more affordable. Rural Icelandic residential land is still being sold and it is an ideal place for families, individuals and business investors, to construct houses, or build small farms for keeping Icelandic horses, small scale land cultivation or other related activities.
Tjarnabyggd is a small suburb community located only 4km from the centre of Selfoss – the major town in the area offering a wide range of services, such as shops, post office, bars, tradesmen and companies providing technical services – all just 55km from Reykjavik, making this a unique investment opportunity in Iceland in solid, fertile land in a peaceful area surrounded by magnificent nature and close to a large bird conservation reserve.
The land in Tjarnabyggd is divided into 61 clusters that altogether cover 600 hectares. Each cluster is made up of six plots of about 10.000 m2. The plots can be bought individually as well as more clusters together, depending on the size of land investors wish to acquire. Every cluster is separated by walkways and 5m wide horseback riding tracks.
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.
