New Zealand town for sale

Alp town including 18 homes, former school and fire station advertised for just $800,000.

    If you have $800,000, an entire town in New Zealand's Alps could be yours for the keeping.

    The town of Otira - all 90 hectares of it - is owned by Bill and Christine Hennah. But they are now looking to retire, and Otira is up for sale. It comes with a former schoolhouse, fire station and 18 homes.

    Much of the activity of this otherwise sleepy town revolves around one building, where the pub, hotel, café and post office are all rolled into one facility.

    Al Jazeera's Gerald Tan reports from the town in the Southern Alps.
