  • Located within 20-30 minutes from 5 ski-fields to explore and a bunch of new mountain biking tracks.
  • Leave your modern technology at home and get away from it all. Play all day and relax all night.
  • You'll find everything you need in this practical brand new house..

Take some time out from the fast pace of life and enjoy a stay at this brand new house located in an outdoors paradise. Simple but practical you will find everything you need when you come back from a day of skiing, mountain biking, rock climbing, walking and other adventures.

One of the best spots in the village this house backs onto the Craigieburn Forest Park and the Thomas River. You'll have access to walking and biking tracks at your back door. Five ski-fields providing a variety of experiences are all within 20-30 minutes drive. World class bouldering can be found by driving 10 minutes east of the village to Castle Hill (Kura Tawhiti) scenic reserve.

If you are wanting something a little more mellow then a walk around these very same boulders will have you in awe. There is even a rustic golf course across the road.

The house is light and airy with windows galore to let the sun in and capture the unique landscape of the surrounding ranges. Being new it is fully insulated and double glazed. The builder had a blast trying out some cool interior finishing techniques to set this place apart from the crowds.

Just over an hour from Christchurch, you can stock up before you escape the rat race. Its just a 20 mins drive down to Springfield to refuel.

Give it a go, once you've tried it you're bound to be back for more.

    Cranking that fire and sprawling on that soft lounge carpet after spending the day outside was a definite highlight of this fun and cozy house. Hot water pressure was very low, and some more sharp knives would complete the package. Overall though, nice house and I would stay again for sure.

    Ok the water problem is finally solved. We got the plumber up again and he found a wasp nest in one of the vent pipes and a bunch of dead wasps! Crazy. Thanks for your feedback and your patience, we should be all good now.
