Off-the-grid with huge income potential

The trees on this exceptional 24 hectare property are ready for milling and the income potential is vast.

The owners have created a self-sufficient lifestyle with a top-of-the-range Off-Grid system. Banks of solar panels, an 8.5 Inverter and 48 2-volt/2000 AMP power storage batteries are connected in series and the two technologies provide 230 volts of electricity or 8 to 10 kilowatts for daily use.

Built in 2012, the 224 square metre home features a spacious open-plan living, family and dining room, a kitchen, five bedrooms and two bathrooms. Numerous doors and floor-level windows open the house to cooling breezes in summer and views of trees and sheep grazing on hillside pasture. The house is bordered by exposed concrete aggregate paths which deepen to form a covered courtyard and outdoor entertaining area outside the living room.

The 3-bay Wide Span Heritage Barn provides garaging, workshop and storage facilities. It has a damp-proof membrane, three roller doors and a concrete floor. Two older 3-bay and 2-bay sheds are located further along the driveway.

The property is planted in approximately 12 hectares of Eucalypts, with the balance planted in Pinus Radiata, Douglas Fir, Redwoods and Macrocarpa Lusitanica. It is fenced and gated and previously grazed a couple of horses.

Located 25 minutes' drive from Motueka and 35 minutes from Richmond, this tranquil rural setting provides quiet country living.
