Shhh don’t tell a soul! You don’t want to miss out on this unique gem, situated 5 minutes from Mangawhai Village, which embraces the good things in life. This piece of paradise has been a hidden secret ever since the 90’s, when the owners started to restore the native forest remnant and develop the 3.3990ha of bare land, travelling each weekend from Auckland to build their dream. Since then they have lovingly developed the property with regenerative bush, dam, orchard, grazing, landscaped gardens, two storied home and a 3 bay American barn. This property has many stories to tell and will continue to do so for future generations.
The character 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom family home has been built to last by the House Company and was meant to be forever, however grown family are calling for vendors to move. Easy living with 2 bedrooms down and 2 very spacious bedrooms upstairs, all with inbuilt robes. Two bathrooms, again one up and one down, and a separate toilet ensure enough facilities for everyone. The handcrafted Macrocarpa kitchen is timeless and opens to the dining and lounge area. Separate decks from these living rooms offer indoor, outdoor flow and a wonderful relaxing ambiance while dining and breathing in the heady smell of exotic plants in the garden, sounds of native bird song, sweeping rural views and landscaped grounds to the pond below. Views sweep out to Te Arai point coastline and beyond to Little Barrier, with glimpses of the ocean.
This home was built to embrace the gentler pace of life with the opportunity to live sustainably and all the hard work has been completed. The home orchard, planted vegetable gardens, next seasons firewood stacked, grazing for a beefy or 2 offers the perfect just move in lifestyle. A separate 3 bay American barn with concrete floor offers a large workshop, storage, parking and an additional sleep-out for those teenagers or guests who come to stay. A quaint outbuilding, currently used as a small museum with historic farming equipment, could offer a writers haven, pottery room or artists studio – the choice is yours.
