Description

The Retreat


What an unbelievable opportunity to acquire The Retreat, custom-designed by Algie Architects (Auckland) along the lines of a grand two-storey natural cedar barn in the New England style.

The eco-conscious light-filled design has comfy hot water underfloor ambient heating, extensive wool-based insulation, high French doors, natural timber interior styling, and a kitchenette in one of the suites. Built on its own wildlife pond,

The Retreat has a separate access driveway and shares a fresh well-spring for its drinking water (analysed to meet NZ Drinking-water Standards). This is a considerable bonus.

The Retreat is operated professionally by Orongo Bay Homestead which is visually separate across a treed lawn. The present owners are willing to continue operating and caretaking The Retreat when new owners are absent, as this "going concern" has an existing international profile and clientele. Alternatively, fully- approved architect's drawings could form the basis for conversion to a lofty two-bedroom or three-bedroom private home.

The flat site of almost half a hectare rises to a point looking north-west across Orongo Bay and includes an existing organic garden with free-range hen run, and a hot house with irrigation. There is ample room for a pool.

The historic town of Russell requires little introduction - renowned for its epic fishing spots, it's the epitome of the great outdoors. Don't forget the cafes and restaurants along the waterfront and selection of boutique shops.

Our vendors are determined to achieve a result and interested parties are advised to proceed with a sense of urgency, contact me immediately for more information. Sold plus GST if any.
