Being sold “as is” this nicely elevated 9.8 hectare bush block enjoys views overlooking the Parapara Estuary and out across the Bay. The property is situated approx. 20 minutes from Takaka Township or approx. 10 mins to the boutique town of Collingwood. Parapara Beach is a few minutes away by car. A short stroll down the driveway and over State Highway 60 you have lovely estuary swimming and the popular Milnthorpe walkway.
The driveway up to the house is a well formed road allowing good access. Other tracks have been formed over other parts of the property. They are a little over grown now but could be easily re-cleared. Obviously not at the moment with the total fire ban and dryness of the ground and undergrowth! Water supply is from a spring adjacent to the house and water for irrigation is also available from a large elevated spring fed dam that provides gravity supply to the property.
The 1980’s dwelling is like a grown-ups Tree House, a rustic open plan bach. Accessed via a bush lined walkway lined with nikau. Sitting nicely tucked into the hill giving shelter and complete privacy. It is of open plan design and enjoys lovely views out over the Parapara Estuary. This view could be opened up a little more if wanted. The bedroom is a slight mezzanine and still open to the living area. Off to the other side is the same layout for an office space or it could be a second sleeping area. A bathroom is located just as you enter the bach, off the covered porch.
The house is powered by an off-grid solar system. A hydro generator is also available. Price by Negotiation. Viewing strictly by appointment only.
