Hard to get any better than this as you have approx. 9 acres of lifestyle land with established trees; some protected specimen varieties making it a bit like owning your own botanical garden. There are fenced paddocks ideal for grazing and an acre of western red cedar ready for harvesting in 5-6 years. With a 1970s take on the Tudor style house you have 4 spacious bedrooms and 2 bathrooms as well as a large separate rumpus/living area and a super-size conservatory and separate lounge all spaced over three levels. The open plan living /kitchen/dining area opens to a wrap-around deck connecting to the conservatory and separate lounge, one of the upper level bedrooms has its own star gazing private deck, and there is greenery from every window offering a feeling of tranquility and privacy. There is truly space for everyone here.
You might well wonder how to keep such a large home warm, but the owners have covered this with a recently installed gas radiator system designed to create an even affordable heat throughout, as well as a wood-burner.
The recently updated décor brings it into modern times with an easy to work in kitchen with an induction stove top and great views from the kitchen window making it a pleasure to prepare meals. There is a double garage and covered access to the door as well as an abundance of off street parking, extra sheds and the potential to restore an older now unused sleep-out. Over looking the eco-sanctuary and with conservation land at the base of the property you are assured ongoing privacy.
All within a short distance of the Blueskin Bay amenities including the local school and play centre, the Blueskin Nursery and Cafe, the local store, art gallery, library, the local harvest market, the popular Orokonui walking track is at your front door, and the Orokonui eco-sanctuary only a short drive to access. If you have an animal loving family, frequent guests, love entertaining, or are a couple desiring an ultimate lifestyle property and want to be surrounded by known local walking tracks and outdoor pursuits, yet still be a 20 minute drive to Dunedin, this exceptional property will be well worth your viewing, but inspect at your peril you may not want to leave - seriously.
