This very special property is located just 2 minutes' drive, in a much sought-after area of Takaka, this property has 2 delightful houses sitting on 1593m2 of land.
The front house, with glorious rural views towards Kahurangi National Park, is the original house built in the 1930's. With open plan living, dining & kitchen, this area makes the most of this view & its polished wooden rimu floors, adds to the ambiance of the home. This area is heated by a large wood fire (with wetback). The main dble bdrm is also at the front of the house, once again, taking advantage of the view from the bay windows. The second dble bdrm is located at the back of the house & has recently been renovated. Both bdrms have French doors out to the side veranda of the house. The bthrm is large with a walk-in wet shower & claw foot bath. The outside deck has been covered in & offers an extra area for a sheltered spot to have a cuppa. The laundry is also found in this area. This house is connected to the main sewerage.
Outside this house, there is a large shed used for wood storage. A 3-bay shed has been recently enclosed making a very warm & spacious workshop with power. Between the sheds & the house is a large, producing avocado tree.
Up the driveway to the back of the section, you find the second dwelling - this is a solid timber Fraemohs home, built in 1995. The house consists of two dble bdrms, one bthrm with separate toilet & large living area, a heatpump & underfloor insulation to keep you cosy in winter. The north facing, closed in veranda takes in the all-day sun & also creates a passive heat source.
