Close to surf, boat ramps and more, this unique property captures a Mediterranean feel in the midst of New Zealand's ubiquitous native bush and rural surrounds. Throw open the cedar framed French doors surrounding the home and revel in the sound of bird life, attracted to, and encouraged by the native and tropical planting around the half acre (approx) lifestyle block. Environmentally friendly aspects include a wood burner with wetback, solar panels and an Enviro Flo waste system. Two levels, two living areas. Downstairs the family enjoy spacious open plan living serviced by a user friendly kitchen, dining room and bathroom. Venture up the beautiful macrocarpa staircase to the second level consisting of a second living area embraced by 3 (nothing short of large), bedrooms and a sunny nook for reading or relaxing. A second bathroom has instant potential for a shower or bath to be added along with the existing toilet. Views out to, and over farmland and native bush, the surround the entire property from both levels. No city lights mean you can enjoy the starry nights, and breathe in natures tranquility. Wander in the food forest and pick your figs, peaches, mandarins - just a few of the many fruit and citrus trees on the boundary. A flat contour provides many alternatives. There's room for a tiny house close to the north facing boundary overlooking further rural views. So much to look forward to after a day at the beach or a trip to the markets if you desire. Directions - Turn into Tara Rd, and head to the Northern end which meets up with Brown Rd and 566 Brown Rd is just a few metres away.
