Just outside the door you have bush and scenic walks, waterfalls, horsetrekking, swimming down in the creek and healing and tasty Manuka honey for sale. And it's only 2-10 mins drive away from the beach, cafes, general store, farm store, art & craft shops, medical centre, library and tennis courts. You’ll love my place because of the outdoors space (1260ha of it) and the equal amounts of character and comfort. My place is good for families (with kids), big groups, and furry friends (pets).
Our older but comfy 4 bedroom home is cool in summer but cosy warm in winter especially with the woodstove going.
2 bedrooms are inside the house and there are 2 bedrooms adjoining the bathroom which is across the metre-wide verandah from the kitchen.
When there are more than 4 people staying, the other bathroom will be available to use. It's about 10 metres around the outside of the house
There's no deck but the BBQ table on the lawn outside is perfect for cooking on the BBQ, supping a wine or two and stargazing at night (no light pollution here !!) Or during the day it's neat to see the Hereford cattle grazing on the paddocks with the mountains in the background.
There's a 1260 hectare farm to wander on -- half is in grass and half is native bush and regenerating manuka bush. (Manuka is what our bees use to make the anti-bacterial/anti-viral honey -- available for sale)
There are bush tracks up to the top of the mountain range with waterfalls on the way. And there are ways to the top of the range via grass paddocks as well -- glowworms are up there too in an old goldmine
The Hereford cattle don't mind you wandering through as long as you haven't got a dog with you -- they think the dog is going to hurt their babies ! (The silly sheep just bolt off if you just look at them but you can still wander through them too)
Just 150 metres away is the creek which is great for paddling in the shallows, building dams and checking out the fish life. A few metres upstream swimmers can jump off the bank and swim in a 3m deep hole. More swimming can be done at the waterfalls too - 2 of them -- lovely native bush to go through.
I'm available to help by cal(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) and sometimes I'll pop in when I'm down at the farm.
(Our son Karl sometimes has to go through your yard to go to his tyre-repair shed in front of your kitchen window so he's available to help too)
