Buyer Budget over $425,000 This property is awaiting a new GV to reflect the upgrades.
It started in 1991 with a 5 acre bare block; now a well planned eco friendly mini farm with Vegetable gardens, Shelter belts, Established trees/standing firewood, Wetlands, Paddocks, Cattle Yards, 3 bay shed, Chook house, 2 car garage/workshop, and a family Villa all just minutes from town, in the Papakaio school district with school buses at the corner and a community recreational water playground just down the road.
The Family Villa with original features was moved to this 5 acre bare block, positioned for sun and restored, a timeless historical piece of history yet with the all important foundation, insulation, septic and electrical and roof done in the mid 90's. Original features throughout include the craftsman style mantels, claw-foot tub, meat safe, floor to ceiling pantry and coal range with boiler. Modern features are a recent added wet floor ensuite and guest room vanity. The deck off the kitchen leads to a sheltered BBQ area with wood fired cooking and areas for seating. Vine covered paths lead through the yard to a single mans hut used as a ventilated dark room equipped with water and power, chock house, gardens and a tree lined entrance to the wetland.
Two units of irrigation shares has enabled the present owner to make a second income off the land and with supplementary feed in the winter raise as many as 13 head. Fully fenced paddocks with additional electric fencing, Well placed stock yards, diesel pump for irrigation, lines and sprinklers, plantations of trees for native birds and firewood, shelter belts for stock, and a wetland ensures that this farm is eco friendly!
Now its time to retire and pass this outstanding property on to its new owner!
