Lifestyle, views and fruit trees galore
Have you been dreaming of downsizing from the farm or moving away from the hustle and bustle of the city to a lifestyle property near the ocean? Then take a look at this home set less than 4km from the Pikowai coastline, with a well-established multi orchard of fruit, nut and ornamental trees. Whether you want to create a small income from selling your produce or just use it to preserve for family use, the choice is yours.
A 1.40 ha (more or less) property with a solid three bedroom, two bathroom Lockwood home sits proudly in this elevated position. The wraparound deck that encompasses all views, from that of the Pacific Ocean below to the amazing lake and rural views out over to snowy mountain ranges in the winter. All living areas are angled to the north east, affording sun throughout most of the day - there is a wood burner and heat pump in this space for added warmth if required. The separate shed has two automatic roller doors and is large enough to house the boat and camper van, as well as the ride on mower.
In addition, there is a two bedroom sleepout for friends and extended family, in a private and secluded location on site - shade provided from the cocktail variety kiwifruit growing outside. With two 25,000 litre water tanks on site and an additional 5,000 litre one for use on the garden - that provide filtered roof collected rain water - you will never run dry. As a back up, community water is available, but rarely required. The current vendors have worked tirelessly to create this lifestyle haven; planting fruit and nut trees that will keep food on your table all year round. All types of citrus, apples, pears, peaches and feijoas to name but a few; together with macadamia, walnut and hazelnut too - the extensive variety of trees and shrubs need to be seen to be believed.
A unique involvement of this home is the community. Subdivided from a farm many years ago, the old woolshed - still with functioning shearing facilities - and cattle yards are still here for the neighbourhood to use. This woolshed also doubles up as the community hall, home to various functions and regular social events throughout the year; plus, there is a communal tennis court next door for family fun. Situated only 30 minutes from Whakatane and 60km from Tauranga, this property is a must view. Call today to look around.
