Located at the fulcrum between civilisation and the wilds of the beautiful Otaki Gorge, this property feels like the very centre of the universe. This is, without question, an utterly exceptional and completely unique property. It has an intangible dreaminess, enveloped in native bush, with a plethora of birdlife, overlooking and with direct access to the majestic Otaki River. There is no other property like this anywhere, yet it is situated just seven kilometres from the new motorway to the capital.
The charms here are seemingly endless. With access to the river down a magical footpath, a private beach, a magnificent and abundant orchard and vege patch, fire pit, spa, chook house (and friendly chickens as chattels!), as well as a second gate off Otaki Gorge Rd which could allow an additional building.
The two buildings here sit like sisters in the landscape. The 360 sqm home combines simplicity and elegance and has five bedrooms, two bathrooms and three living areas. With multiple outdoor living areas that flow seamlessly from the indoors, there's nature in every vista and only the sound of the river and birdsong. This home was built with family and entertaining in mind, but would be equally suitable as a peaceful retreat.
The second building was originally constructed as the Tararua Outdoor Recreation Centre and is now an amazing blank canvas which will suit a variety of purposes. Lovingly referred to as The Boatshed, this is the perfect launchpad for its new owners to utilise as they wish. With full bathroom in place, this could easily be turned into an accommodation and also includes high stud drive through garaging for all the toys.
Opportunities like this in life are incredibly rare. Your family deserve this lifestyle. Enter the realm of the heavens.
