Unique opportunity to live 'the good life'


A rare find in Raetihi, this peaceful and private haven will impress those looking to move to a sustainable lifestyle property with opportunities to create your very own paradise.

Set on 3.62ha (approx 9 acres) this bespoke, handcrafted three-bedroom home built in 2001 has many amazing features that will impress the discerning buyer. The home has a small carbon footprint with materials sourced locally and the Lawson Cypress was milled from trees on the property. Designed with an Arts and Crafts style, the eye for detail is exceptional. The use of different timbers such as Matai, Cedar, Totara, and Rimu are combined to create a masterpiece.

From the moment you enter you will be wowed by the quality workmanship and originality of each room. The large wood burner with wetback heats the downstairs and the flue upstairs helps to heat the open-plan bedrooms. Two living areas plus a deck provides options for year-round entertaining. The kitchen is a hub for entertaining and cooking, with the butler's pantry for extra bench space and storage.

The three outbuildings provide space and storage for all lifestyle enthusiasts. There are two workshops with mezzanines, a tack room, and a good-sized hothouse so whatever your hobby or plan is, there is an opportunity to work from home or just enjoy family life in peace and quiet. The established fruit trees, flowering shrubs, trees, and gardens are a delight, and birdlife is abundant all year round.

The land is divided into two large deer-fenced paddocks, complete with six of your very own mixed-aged Red Hinds, and 200 Radiata Pines in a separate paddock. Access is through a track wide enough for a four-wheeler. Manuka is growing freely amongst the paddocks so beehives could be an option. The remaining two small paddocks to the rear and side of the house plus a flat area could be suitable to build a sleep-out for Air BnB guests.

Seldom do properties of this scale, quality, and potential so close to town come to the market. Call now, you will be enchanted.
