Off the grid retreat

Come and make your mark on this fabulous state of the art property on the Brynderwyn Hills. Tucked away in its own little micro-climate and framed by native bush, established trees and several cabins it really could be your very own slice of paradise!

Inside, this sun-soaked home boasts two bedrooms, a highly functional kitchen, and living spaces that are guaranteed year-round comfort thanks to the log burner/cooker/radiator.

Outside, the large carport contributes further appeal, as do the outbuildings, with a purpose-built sleep pod, cabins, and a shade house.

With a seventh share in 36 hectares the sound of birdsong can always be enjoyed. A food forest is established on the hillside above the house to provide easy care land management of the slope.

"Ruru House Farm" utilises permaculture design principles to create a self-sustaining landscape.

Zone planting means frequently visited gardens are placed close to the house while trees requiring less attention are placed further away. Rainwater run-off is slowed down using swales and terraces so that trees are sustained for most of the year. Many of the trees are boxed in with logs and mulched to retain moisture. Fruit and nut trees have guilds planted around them such as Comfrey and Geranium as well as Silver-berry and other nitrogen-fixing species to increase yield. The site has prevailing Northeast winds, so wind buffers have been planted around the perimeter to shelter fruit and nut trees. Native tree plantings are clustered around the Totara and Manuka trees and along the stream.

The grounds are both pristine and productive, the home immaculate and inviting, and the lifestyle thoroughly compelling. Properties of this calibre are always in high demand, and interested parties are advised to proceed with a sense of urgency.
