Big Barn House Bush & Sea Views!

Just the ticket for those looking for something that's private, peaceful, charming and alive with birdsong. Here you can play gypsy in nature's paradise, yet hit the beach, cafes, shops and farmers market all mere minutes away, with Mangawhai Village 5 km in one direction and Kaiwaka 11 km in the other.

On offer is a 3 bedroom, 180m2 two storey, Dutch style barn-house constructed with colour steel for low maintenance. This home boasts a distant ocean view and nestles perfectly in its 12 acre bush and pasture environment, all fully fenced. The protected Rimu, Totara, Kauri and other species, plays host to a collection of birdlife including Tui, Pukeko, Wood Pigeon and Morepork.

Stepping inside, the barn-house is light and spacious with combined dining and modern kitchen, with a separate lounge plus two bathrooms. A wood-burner with wetback keeps the home cosy whilst also sending warmth upstairs to the bedrooms. A front and back porch offer great drying areas or peaceful spots for coffee and a book.

Stepping outside, there is also a large single-bay barn with lean to, for storing the tools and toys. Plus a covered shed for firewood. A bore feeds the lower paddocks. The current owner speaks fondly of the native bush, with a freshwater stream saying her grandies would only leave this treasure-filled spot when they were hungry. Never a dull moment here in the school holidays...

In terms of potential, this property would be amazing with a large deck out from the lounge being an obvious first choice for a new owner to undertake, which would extend the entertaining area giving you a very private, beautiful native bush outlook, plus coastal views, the sand dunes of Mangawhai, sunrises, sunsets and views from the Hen & Chicks Islands to Little Barrier Island. What more could you ask for?

Think hassle-free holidays, aside from the lawns round the barn house, the job list will be low. The neighbour's horses are currently grazing in the paddocks with potential to continue this arrangement. Or as a permanent option, you might like to join the growing trend of locals who choose to commute to either Auckland, or Whangarei.

Live in paradise, whilst reaping more value for your investment than may be possible in Auckland.

Don't miss out our vendor's heart is in Rotorua, and this is great value buying.
