BLOCKS of land once planned to form part of a family-friendly estate are for sale for just over $49,000.

The 23 blocks off Lorikeet Ave for sale were once part of Gladstone Green, a planned 36 home suburb that promised family-friendly living in New Auckland.

An auction sell off was attempted for the 23 blocks earlier this month, but now they're on the market.

Advertised as "never to be repeated pricing" the blocks are flat and ready to build on.

The land sizes range from 300sqm to 660, but most are around 450sqm.

The 23 blocks are advertised for sale by Ray White from $49,950, with the average price $68,000.
