Outstanding lifestyle opportunity

Enjoy the birds, bees and trees on the fertile slopes of Tara.

A magic lifestyle awaits you to enjoy the unique hand-crafted light earth home and idyllic 14.6ha (approximately 36 acres).

Feel instantly at home and welcome in the natural earth 15 year old two- level home and attached self- contained flat. It has 2 bedrooms (or 3 if the flat bedroom is included), a kitchen with a feature wood burning oven & hob, plus a separate gas stove. The light earth construction and wood framing provide exceptional insulation, cool in summer and warm in the winter.

Off the living areas to the north is the lawn and garden which has a warm microclimate, excellent for growing exotic plants and trees which surround the house and perfect for entertaining, a hot tub for relaxing in after a day in the garden completes the scene.

One of the property highlights is the underlying volcanic soil which has benefited the growth and health of the mature fruit trees. The land is ideal for growing a diverse range of produce from chestnuts to banana trees and lends itself to market gardening or beekeeping for example.

A mature shelter belt of various tree types, was planted 15 years ago, these now provide the right sheltered environment for horticulture and agriculture activities, and the lush flat pastures adjacent to the Hakaru River are excellent for stock and horses.

The Hakaru River, plus the spring and creek located on the property provide a year-round water supply and is a huge bonus for any lifestyle farmer.

A large shed plus leanto completes the accommodation, it suits a 4 car garage and tractor or alternatively a combined workshop and storage area

This magic property offers a diverse range of income and recreational options including Air BnB and must be seen to be appreciated.
