Idyllic island lifestyle

11.14 hectares of land on Aotea, Great Barrier Island. Located 90km north east of Auckland in New Zealand, it's a world away from the hustle and bustle of a city, about 4 hours by ferry and 30mins by plane, Great Barrier Island (Aotea) is a 'world of its own'. Although part of Auckland Central, the island is as different to any city as you could get. Take a trip back in time to when roads were unsealed, and drivers acknowledged one another. There are no banks, no traffic lights and just a few shops. Water is mainly collected from rain and power is generated by generator and/or alternative energy sources.

This large parcel of land is surrounded by native Kanuka and Manuka bush with a large portion of pastured area for development of a market garden plus room for a couple horses or a cow, ideal to keep the grass mowed and fertilised. Legal road easement in good condition up to the property with 4-wheel drive or horse power. Part of the road that lies over the property will require some engineering leading up to the house. The dwelling is basic and rustic and in need of some maintenance but still a good base from which to work with, consider this the ugly duckling.

If you can handle the serenity and isolation, and wish to live life, have green fingers and able to work the land then this would arguably be the greatest lifestyle available for sale. Not for the faint-hearted.
