Do you dream of a peaceful rural retreat with a home and cottage full of character and charm, grazing, an enchanting pocket of native bush and a stony bottom river? Then this is your opportunity to secure a 2.7 hectare property where you can enjoy a wonderful country lifestyle with the bonus of large vege gardens and every fruit tree imaginable.
The attractive original cottage has lots of appeal, with a gorgeous covered verandah that wraps around two sides of the home to provide shelter in winter and an ideal spot to rest on a hot summers day. This is a perfect cottage for extra guests, or even as a teenager’s retreat, with two bedrooms in the loft, a separate bathroom and an open plan living area.
Positioned for all day sun and purpose built for extended family, the main home has two wings with two living areas, four bedrooms and two bathrooms, joined by a double carport, so ideal too, as B&B guest accommodation, for long term visitors or simply for families that welcome their own space. Continuing the board and batten style, the main living wing has a covered deck that spills from the dining/living area, so alfresco dining can be enjoyed all year round.
The chef in the family will love the butlers sink and roomy kitchen with lots of storage cupboards and bench space and as there are plenty of fresh herbs and vegetables in the vege patch, meal time will be a gourmet delight.
The master bedroom has a semi-ensuite with a shower, plus a deep spa bath splendid for relaxing and soaking with a glass of wine. There is a second bedroom that would also make a great office, plus another toilet and a dedicated laundry/utility room with storage for coats and boots.
A separate sleep-out, currently not in use, could potentially be reinstated; there is a double garage/workshop with power for a handyperson and plenty of scope for a range of ‘work from home’ occupations. Plus a glass-house, poly house and an open bay shed for storage and potting, will keep the gardener in the family enraptured.
The grazing land will suit alpacas, sheep and a donkey or two with animal shelters and five fenced paddocks and the water for the troughs and cottage is pumped from the stream. The main house water is filtered and taken from the roof. The chooks have their own superb run and yard, so will provide plenty of eggs and with lots of space for children to run around and explore, a river and a native bush backdrop with tuis, kereru and other native birds – the whole family will feel they are in paradise.
