If you hanker after a quiet off-grid life, this charming pioneer-style cottage on 13.4ha in Honeymoon Valley, Peria, could be the place for you. Access is a metalled paper road. The relocated cottage (non-permitted, unlined, with working woodstove with wetbck) can easily be extended & decked & sits half on the eastern side of the property, sited for the stunning views down the valley and to the bushy ridge opposite.
Approx 3500 x 1.5 year old manuka (potential for honey or oil) plus a secret forest of majestic ancient puriri, plus kahikatea, miro, totara & tree fern (covenant bush), dropping down a ravine with artesian spring water make this property special. There's also a stony bottom stream bisecting the two ridges with level building site in the valley.
Abundant bird-life: tui, wood pigeon, long-tailed and shining cuckoo & grey warbler add to the appeal.
