Located back from the road and nestled between neighbouring farmlets you will really love the rural feel and amazing views that this home offers.
Surprisingly spacious this 1910's home offers three double bedrooms (with potential for a fourth bedroom), large bathroom with roll top bath, separate shower and north facing lounge/dining with great indoor/outdoor flow to the sunny north facing deck.
Well fenced and set on three acres of flat grazeable land, the only decision you need to make is what animals you will graze. Along with a couple of sheds the added bonus here is the large pole shed perfect for a workshop or as an over-sized garage.
There's definitely some TLC and general maintenance to be carried out but look past that you will see the potential and what this property really offers. If you are looking for an opportunity to escape to the country but still being close to town then this home would be well worth a look.

We want to say a huge thank you to the incredible OneSight team who have recently spent time at five Salvation Army centres around the country providing free eye tests and glasses to Kiwis who are unable to afford them.

624 people were seen over five days with nearly 70% needing glasses. Amazingly, 150 people attending the clinics were are able to leave with their new glasses which were manufactured on site!

OneSight Programme Manager for Australia/New Zealand Jenny Harnett says it was an honour to partner with The Salvation Army to deliver these clinics to communities in need. “We believe that glasses unlock potential, providing opportunities for students to learn, for people to work and earn a living, to drive, to read, and to support their families."

Thanks again OneSight!

This boutique hotel offers a new owner the opportunity to combine a healthy and diverse lifestyle with an interesting and profitable business which naturally scales down during winter, allowing for a holiday.

Each of the five beautifully appointed suites has been subtly themed, providing individual charm as well as comfort.

A large woodburner with wetback heats the water for a series of radiators around the house, ensuring year-round warmth.

Organically managed, the four-hectare property provides the ability to live from the land with honey, fruit trees, berry patches, vegetable gardens, olives and grazing for sheep, cattle and horses. The small Chardonnay vineyard with a careful selection of clones produces a succulent house wine thoroughly enjoyed by guests from all around the world.

A range of useful ancillary sheds and buildings offers space for projects, hobbies, storage and accommodation for staff. Other facilities on the property include a petanque court, croquet lawn and small gymnasium overlooking the swimming pool.

This extraordinarily diverse and unique lifestyle is ideally located on State Highway One, less than a five-minute drive from central Blenheim and 15 minutes from numerous winery cellar doors, restaurants and the airport.

This year’s 17 awards are all tremendous examples of the Taranaki can-do attitude and highlight the innovation and practical environmentalism that’s a strong part of the regional culture.

They are leaders in ecological restoration in the region and their achievements are worthy of celebration, contributing to maintaining and improving our healthy environment and biodiversity.

We’re a region of people who walk the talk. We see what needs to be done, and we get stuck in and do it. This is the spirit that makes the region what it is.

So congratulations to our winners, and to all the others out there working hard to make Taranaki an even better place.
