Are you looking for a lifestyle block with fabulous views, peace and quiet and ready for you to grow your own food on? Then this is the place for you. The house is a solid 100+ year old bungalow with fabulous matai flooring and rimu ceilings, fully furnished. It's just been painted inside and out. The land has been re-seeded and fertilised. There are five paddocks that can be divided into seven with electric fencing which will be supplied with the property. 6 ewes, 1 lamb and 2 laying hens, a chick and a rooster also come with the property. There is a block of pines perfect for a constant supply of firewood and there is also a large pile of firewood already cut and split for next winter. The huge vege garden area is already ploughed up and ready to plant. It is a large enough area that you could make an income off it growing flowers. Four fences are lined with approximately 5000 tulip bulbs and there are hundreds of irises and daffodils. There are 70 cherry trees, one great cooking apple tree, a plum tree, a large patch of raspberries and a weka proof strawberry patch. There are also weed-matted garden areas ready for you to plant and put your own stamp on the property. A small pond area is also ready to plant out which has frogs in the summer for the kids to enjoy. The property is just off the main road 70km from Gisborne and 70km from Opotiki. All the roads are tarsealed and with streetlights so it's a little bit of town in the peace and quiet of the country. It's an awesome, friendly, helpful community with a school, two café/stores, one store, a firestation, a petrol station and a police station. The area has some of the best hunting and trout fishing in the county but if you're just a nature lover there are bike trails and walking tracks nearby. And if you're into native wildlife the wekas come to your door and there is a pair of NZ falcons that fly the hills. The insect and birdlife is phenomenal and stargazing is glorious. Please phone Sue for an appointment to view the property.
