Peace and Tranquility
This compact but oh so cute cottage is charming and will step you back in time to memories of childhood holidays exploring the bush, mucking around in a dingy or kayak in a sheltered bay, collecting cockles, leisurely walks, relaxing, reading, and generally enjoying each moment. With its spacious front deck overlooking the ever-changing tidal bay and surrounding hills this provides the perfect retreat from the busy world.
Whether you are looking for a kiwi style holiday crib or a permanent home, this special property offers peace, privacy, sun, views and beach life that includes surfing, fishing, kayaking, walks, mountain bike tracks, rock climbing and relaxing.
There is no septic system, the toilet is a composting one, and there is gas hot water. The kitchen has no stove, but bench top appliances will be left. Water is rainwater. The sunroom opens to the spacious deck, the large bedroom opens from the living area, the bathroom is off the kitchen and on the other side of the kitchen is an office space. There is under house access and storage. The home is insulated where possible and there is both a heat-pump and a wood burner to keep you warm in the cooler months.
