Great location for those who want to have easy access to Rotorua attractions but prefer a semi-rural location-Situated on the slopes of Mt Ngongotaha.
From the large deck the views are across the city to the Whaka Forest (home of well-known mountain bike tracks) and takes in surrounding landscapes - including Mount Tarawera.
The property is set in approximately three quarters of an acre which is being gradually developed into gardens. A very peaceful setting with bush clad Mount Ngongotaha as a backdrop.
