Description

  • Sunny, North-facing sheltered location with wraparound decking
  • Minutes from the river, set on 25 acres at the base of a forest park
  • Rammed earth walls create a warm, cosy feel for winter

Noth-facing sheltered location and wraparound decks looking out to 25acres of land alongside the river.

The house is designed to stay an even 22degrees year round with the solar heating, double glazed windows & rammed earth walls.

Relax and unwind with a handcrafted cider, boutique beer or local wine in one of the sunloungers on the wraparound deck; entertain in the summer time with the real outdoor woodburner BBQ and dining area by the grapes or read a good book settled into one of the bean bags out of the afternoon heat in the cool of the adobe mudbrick walls.

Feed the eels at the bottom creek; head out for an evening flyfish in the world-renowned river 2 minutes walk at the bottom of the driveway; go for a hike in the Kahurangi National Park 15 minute drive up the back of the property; head out for a kayak from to Kaiteriteri 20 minute drive; explore the local mountain biking tracks; visit the local heritage pubs in the area; book a massage with the neighbouring therapist in the whitewashed straw-bale roundhouse by the walnut tree.

There are so many relaxation and recreational options both on the property and in the local area you may just need to visit more than once, in more than 1 season.

This property is a beautiful gem in the Abel Tasman, set on 25 acres at the base of the National Park.

  • Great property and very quiet

    Great property and very quiet. The house was very warm and the outlook onto the farmland is great. The house is spacious and perfect for a couple or family getaway. We definitely recommend it to others. :)
