Iceland investment opportunities

tjarnabyggdIn delicate economic times, there’s no more solid investment than land – especially when that land is some of the most fertile in Iceland and part of an exciting new project designed to maximise convenience and long-term value.

Tjarnabyggd is the name of a new community taking shape in the beautiful south of Iceland. Part of Arborg District, the settlement enjoys excellent municipal services and each plot of land comes already connected to high quality modern infrastructure.

Tjarnabyggd is the perfect place to buy land in Iceland for raising horses, for small farms, large family homes, or entertaining tourists. The land-use rules are strict, but the building rules are not – this means you can build the house of your dreams on your own land, safe in the knowledge that Tjarnabyggd will remain a charming and idyllic rural location free from high-rise buildings and industry.

In fact South Iceland has always been free from heavy industry which means the land, the air and the water are completely pure. Tjarnabyggd’s charming location looks the part too: with sea views, glacier views, mountain views, a wide grassy plain, a huge nearby bird reserve and many ponds, Tjarnabyggd offers the very best of country living.

But as an investment opportunity in Iceland, beautiful land also needs good services in order to have economic value. Tjarnabyggd is fortunate in this respect to be a stone’s throw from the major town of Selfoss and within easy reach of Iceland’s capital city, Reykjavik and Keflavik International Airport.

Each plot of land for sale in Iceland at Tjarnabyygd is connected to the road network, provided with geothermal hot and cold mains water supply, connection to Iceland’s renewably generated electricity supply, connection to Siminn’s most advanced fibre optic communications system, with high-speed internet, telephone and digital television service. Tjarnabyggd also features an extensive network of street-lit paths for horse riding, walking and cycling. Furthermore, Arborg District also provides many services, including refuse collection, snow ploughing, school buses and street lighting.
