Live with Nature in Style


Live on 11.4912ha of bush bordered grazing with stands of native trees, where home is a stylish Classic Builders dwelling on a sunny rise.

It's only 20 minutes from Tauranga but it feels a world away with its view across the paddocks and over the beautiful kahikatea trees, towards the covenanted bush. It may be only five minutes to the local country school but children can grow up running free, learning to look after animals and riding ponies. It is close enough to commute to work but the land is large enough to be productive. It has successfully grazed 20 or so head of steers and produced 700 bales of hay per year. The very gently rolling long narrow block is both easy to work and good for the soul. Outbuildings include one relatively large old shed and the frame of what can become your new haybarn.

The home sits on a north facing rise with rustic landscaping suiting its natural environment. Nothing rustic about the house though. Built five years ago by an award-winning building company it displays contemporary style, sophistication and practicality. The separate lounge and open plan living get all day sun with sliding doors to patio along the sunniest side. Bedrooms are all very spacious, bathrooms sleek and modern. Repeating design features like the large tiles in the foyer, kitchen and dining area echoing the smaller ones in both bathrooms create a seamless look, reverse detail doors more evidence of attention to detail. There is copious storage and a good-sized laundry. A wet back on the log burner enhances hot water efficiency from the 280 litre cylinder.

The location, just past Oropi village, is showing signs of 'gentrification' with many large properties being subdivided into lifestyle blocks. This one is no exception, being the last property off a long, sealed right of way with an attractive rock wall entrance. Temptingly convenient when the school bus stops at the gate, Tauranga is so close and Rotorua easily accessible.
