Big views, small farm, spacious home, fruitful orchard, shed
A country lifestyle ideal for a family, lifestyle lovers or active retirees. The thermal pools across the road are definitely a bonus!
Arrive at this property up a pretty tree lined drive and you can see why it is named "Mount View". Mauao looms centre of a wide rural and coastal panorama which will become a daily source of pleasure. The home nestles on a wide plateau of lawn and garden, banks behind and shelter to the side protecting it from prevailing winds.
The hillside farmland of the 3.0757 ha drops below with excellent track access starting from the three-bay shed and upper yards. It's good beef grazing with two wire electric fencing and a second set of yards at the bottom.
Pick your own salad, pickle or preserve from over a dozen varieties of fruit trees in the orchard - apples, plums, persimmon, citrus, blueberries, feijoas, peaches, pears and nectarine plus macadamia nuts. Grow your vegetables in the raised gardens and spend hours happily pottering in the flower gardens which have tracks along the intensely planted banks. Two woodsheds and a garden shed plus the space in the farm shed and a high stud haybarn beside it. Two tanks ensure your water supply.
Whether for family or hosting guests, the separate wing of two bedrooms flanking a bathroom at the rear of the garage extend your options in what is already a spacious home with plenty of living fronting the sunny patio and the view.
If you need a relaxing soak after of a day working at the property or a long hike in the Kaimai Ranges at the top of the road, simply cross the road to the Sapphire Springs thermal pools. Shops are as close as Katikati just seven minutes away.
