Just north of Otaki on seven glorious acres, this home is tucked into a beautiful pocket of green and evokes feelings of the first pioneers - with practicality in mind, excellent planning, aesthetic harnessing - set in harmoniously with the gorgeous land.
A beautiful wrap-around verandah and eaves provide the perfect spot for a rocking chair and a hot toddy to watch the weather come through. With 19th-Century style cladding, using 12mm tanalised ply and macrocarpa battens, this comfortable home sits charmingly and proud against the lush landscape.
With a focus on low energy consumption, this home's design includes polished concrete floors and cork tiles to capture passive heat. There's a 2.7m stud and wool insulation has been blown into the walls and ceiling and solar energy provides water heating.
In the heart of the home, a large bright kitchen with plenty of bench space to bake up a storm opens out to sumptuous open plan living and dining, including a woodburner with wetback. Large windows frame rural views at every corner.
A huge array of thoughtfully planted, beautiful native trees and shrubs line the landscape, as well as 50 walnuts and many fruit trees. Plentiful underground water supply brought into the home via the highly dependable copper pipes.
Yet another building, "The Facility" is 80sqm, which includes a sleep out / office, with its own woodburner, triple garage and separate water storage supply. Many possibilities for family, friends, or income.
Built 25 years ago by the current owner / builder, you can see and feel just how much thought, love and consideration for the environment has gone into this property, inside and out, and it's ready for new owners to harness the bounty.
