Amazing large property with jaw dropping views set on 80 hectares of bush land.

Perched on the top of a cliff with views in every direction this property is seriously one of kind.

Skeet shooting off the deck, or relaxing in the massive bath there is something here for a boys weekend, or couples retreat or small party of friends.

Well positioned for excellent fishing, white baiting (well known Hutiwai Road) and hunting (available on the property by special request).

Bush walks, beach walks (Three Sisters and Elephant rock 2 minute drive) and the White Cliffs walk all very close by.

Property is completely off the grid with solar panels, gas hot water, septic and rain water.

This property is a very unique that defiantly offers something a little different than anything else you've seen before.

This property does have a few limitations

- it is 4x4 drive access only, and a competent driver is needed to negotiate the 1km track to this property - a driver can be organised at request for those that require one.

- Although children are welcome we must stress this property is not safe for young children with large cliffs outside.

- The house is 90% completed, it still needs a few finishing touches and a "proper" kitchen, however it has everything needed in a kitchen as well as an oven, fridge, pantry etc..

- This property is only offered on Book a Bach to help fund the cost of the property until which time as it is completed and will be offered for upmarket retreats.

Located 50 minutes from New Plymouth City.

Special conditions: Absolutely no dogs due to the kiwi population close to the house. 4X4 access only - a significant 1km steep driveway to this property is only accessible via four wheel driver with a very competent driver at the wheel.

  • We spent a wonderful christmas holiday with this house

    We spent a wonderful christmas holiday with this house. I was so worried because Lucy said many people couldn't make it to the house even if they have 4x4 cars. It is a risky road, hard to go up but we did it. It was pretty exciting as soon as we saw the house. The house is very modern and new but is not completed. But it is not big issue for us because it has wonderful view and stunning landscape. Espcially the sunsets and stars. Our family had very good time. I wish to go again. Thanks Lucy:)
