Deadline Sale (unless sold prior)

1pm, Tue 26 Jun 2018

Located in the picturesque and tree-lined settlement of Cooptown, just a couple of minutes drive beyond the quaint township of Little River, this 2.69ha smallholding has the country lifestyle, yet is close enough to Christchurch city (approximately 50minutes) to enjoy the best of both worlds.

Your options here are endless; the property is situated on four titles, has ten paddocks, five sheds, a hen house and sheep yards. There are currently over 1500 Paeony tubers planted (13 rows) which are grown for the export market providing a supplementary income. The double garage is inclusive of a separate chiller and has pack house space, therefore catering for any market produce you may wish to grow. The soil type is Barry's silt loam. The property presently carries a small flock of sheep helping the spring growth.

Originally built in 1930s (approximately), the cottage is of solid construction and fully insulated. Having undergone renovations over the years in keeping with the character and charm of the cottage style, it is beautifully maintained and has a lovely feel. You are kept warm and cosy with a standalone log burner and also have the choice to light up the open fire to enjoy the ambiance during winter. The three double bedrooms are spacious and the neutral decor throughout is very pleasant.

Outdoors, the landscaping has many specimen trees and shrubs along with several vegetable gardens and an old established orchard. There is also an amazing collection of spring plantings and a rose garden.

After almost 25 years our vendor has decided to downsize. This decision now provides the opportunity for a new owner to make plans and embark on the next step for the future of this fabulous property.

Come and enjoy the good life away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
