Spacious, comfortable, lots of character, one acre of beautiful garden & bush, stream, foot bridges, privacy, bush walks at the doorstep. 15 mins to Lower Hutt, 25-30 min to Wellington, "coolest little capital in the world!" 5 min walk to bus stop.
There is a stream, fish ponds and steps on the property so small children need to be supervised. No smoking please.
I am a violinist/violist/musician/teacher, born in the US, raised mostly in Canada. My partner is from the US, and we moved to NZ in 2010 when he was offered a job in the NZ Symphony Orchestra.
We spent the 20 years before that moving back & forth between Spain, the US and Mexico. Now we're happy to be settled here in Aotearoa, meaning either "land of the long white cloud," "long bright world" or "land of abiding day."
