The ultimate
lifestyle block for peace, serenity, privacy and self-sufficiency.  Seven hectares (17 acres) of well setup
grazing land with all the hard work done. 
A private river boundary with an 80 metre long, deep swimming hole, lots
of rock pools and waterfalls.  Pockets of
native bush, riparian planting on the stream feeding the river. Lots of fruit
trees, large vegetable garden, hazelnut trees and a fabulous free-range poultry
setup.  A sunny warm house with views to
die for. There is so much to discover here. This property is a rare find.

When the summer
heat arrives, escape to the river retreat with your own camp-site and cabin to
shut out the bustle of life. Serenity and summer fun in the water are literally
on your doorstep.  This is the
quintessential New Zealand farm, bush and river hideaway.

Built in 2004, the house is positioned to capture the sun
and sweeping views.  Stacker  doors in the dining area, a corner window-seat
in the lounge and ranchsliders from the master bedroom, guest suite and extra
living area encompass the house with the great outdoors.  Wonderful sunsets, ethereal mists and cloud
above the river and hills add to the ever-changing outlook you will never tire

With a spacious
master bedroom having a walk-in wardrobe and ensuite, two further bedrooms,
plus two living areas and a large wet-floor disabled bathroom, plus a guest
suite with separate access, bathroom and kitchenette, this is a comfortable
house that suits many family situations.

A large high-stud
triple garage and separate garden shed complement the house.  Two haybarns, pumphouse and well setup
stockyards with loading race, head-bale, multiple pens and separate 30,000
litre stockwater system complete the farm amenities.  Seventeen clean grazing paddocks, well-fenced
with water troughs and track access to all paddocks make this a great lifestyle

Currently run as
an alpaca farm, the property is suitable for cattle, calf-rearing, sheep,
horses or alpacas. Alpacas and farm assets, including a John Deere Gator, are available
as an additional purchase option.
