Imagine all the possibilities that this 32.9313 hectare property holds such as a homestay, Airbnb, a retreat, holiday cottage, hunting and fishing accommodation, farm or lease out the land or even re-purpose the sheds. A bespoke hand-crafted home awaits - reap the benefits of the vendors vision, expertise, skill and the love that has gone into the design, planning, and construction of this home.

Privacy abounds with a superb outlook to the foothills and inland plains. Nestled against the land and sheltered from prevailing winds this home has been lovingly crafted out of natural materials for low environmental impact. Constructed in an Appalachian log home style with beautifully crafted walls of Oregon beams, Atlas Ceder and Oak joinery plus Red Beech flooring. The mezzanine floor bedroom offers fabulous views plus second bedroom as well as a quirky nook where you can sit in the sun, read, or enjoy the view. The ground floor is dedicated to the kitchen with granite bench and open plan living spaces plus the main bathroom and adjoining conservatory. The large wood fired stove drives a wetback and heats the house, plus throw open double doors to the impressive wrap-around deck with veranda, all with vistas across the Waitohi River and countryside. Powered by an off-grid solar system, with conventional power nearby if required. Separate sleepout provides accommodation for family and friends.

Three large older buildings, young pines, and walnut trees plus pasture, all elevated above the meandering Waitohi River, means this property offers up all sorts of options.

But this property has a lot more! You need to view to appreciate all that is on offer.
