Peaceful & private country retreat

Web Ref#FNC10361

Set amongst native bush and farmland this 8852 sqm lifestyle block and character 3 bedroom wooden home feel wonderfully peaceful and secluded. Located down a very quiet gravel road within 20 minutes drive from Mangonui Village and Doubtless Bay, this property will appeal to buyers wanting the feel of remote country living while still being close to key amenities.

The home is set well back from the road and above a clear stony bottom stream bordered with native bush and frequented by native eels. Extensive wrap around decking provides a lovely spot to relax, take in the sights and sounds of the stream and forest, and contemplate the next land project. Views from the other side of the house take in sweeping lawns and the gentle curve of the drive that winds down from the road. Dense vegetation along the roadside boundary hide and shelter the house and grounds from occasional passers-by and winter winds.

Inside the home the main living area features a high stud exposed timber cathedral ceiling and sliding doors opening to front and rear decks. The kitchen is separated from this area by a breakfast bar and walled on two sides with large windows that take in lovely bush views. All three bedrooms are very spacious, the master bedroom being extra-large, located upstairs and enjoying views over the stream and tree fern canopies. This solidly built home, includes totara sarking and exposed native timber beams, and could be refreshed and personalised to create a truly lovely living space. It is connected to mains power and phone and serviced by a 25,000 litre rain water tank.

The balance of the land is nicely landscaped with loads of potential for further development, including a second potential building site for a sleepout or workshop space with independent driveway access. There is plenty of space for kids, animals and gardens, and the land is on the local school bus route.
