This exquisite yet rustic home is truly unique, a one-of-a-kind piece of art and craftmanship that will make you never want to leave. Built over the last 3 years by the owner, who has a background in construction, this container-conversion/timber frame hybrid offers an open plan kitchen-dining and main communal area with easy flow onto the large deck, overlooking Taratara Rock and surrounding valleys, a lounge/reading room that also overflows onto the deck, one large bedroom, and a bathroom accessed by the covered deck. There is room for expansion as well as an attic with dormer, that could be turned into a large additional bedroom or kids area…. The possibilities are endless!
There is an additional sleepout with its own separate bathroom (shower and sink, plus room for a toilet).
The entire property is off-grid, and both the house and the sleepout have their own small solar systems in place. These run the lights and water pumps, phone charging ports and an inverter for electronic devices, and could easily be upgraded to support larger appliances.
The main bathroom is equipped with a Bambooloo composting toilet and floor level accessible shower.
The dwellings are not permitted, but solidly built more than to code.
Rates are $2616.89
The extremely fertile terraced gardens have been providing the family’s entire vegetable requirements year round, and there is a young orchard that produces an abundance of apples, pears, plums, peaches, nectarines, persimmons, bananas, feijoas, citrus, etc.
With 17 acres of mixed pasture and regenerating bush (some pockets of mature older trees), there is room to grow your own meat, have some pets, ponies for the kids, and let the kids explore nature uninterrupted, or just retreat onto your own piece of paradise.
Perfectly located on a quiet no exit road, yet only 2 km off state highway 10 and just 12 minutes from Mangonui and 35 minutes to Kerikeri, with primary schools and kindergarten less than 10 minutes drive and the school bus at the end of the road.
Enjoy evenings on the large deck watching the glow over Taratara Rock as the sun sets, or gaze at the endless stars and see the milky way as you listen to kiwis calling.
This is truly a very special property with a beautiful home that must be seen to be appreciated.
