Classic French country home and income
Two classic, "French Country" style homes, set in the hills above the Ohiwa Harbour & Waiotahe Estuary. Private, cleanly presented grounds with mature shelter trees on the border. Downstairs, the main home has 2 double bedrooms, bathroom, laundry & open plan dining/kitchen/living. French Doors open to beautiful sweeping lawns. Upstairs is the master bedroom, bathroom & private lounge opening to a generous deck. A beautiful country & coastal vista can be appreciated by day or enjoy cool summer evenings in the open air above the bush canopy, delight in a night sky free from light pollution. The home features a built-in sound system, with 13 imported chandeliers adding a unique charm.
The second lodging is currently utilized as a successful Air BnB, "The Good Place". Quaint & comfortable, it has 2 generously sized bedrooms, fully equipped kitchen/ laundry/ bathroom, open plan living plus those same great views! A classic woodstove keeps it warm and cosy. The ground floor is a 2 bay garage, plenty of space for vehicles and hobbies.
Both dwellings have been equipped with classic fittings & features, including traditional windows with shutters, natural hardwood flooring, an open fireplace, and Italian tiles. Vintage porcelain ware throughout the bathrooms.
The grounds & dwellings combined theme replicates that of a small French countryside estate, featuring once in the NZ House & Garden Magazine. Terraced gardens, fruit trees, raised vegetable plots & the surrounding native bush all add a natural charm to this property.
The area is well renowned for its beautiful coastal scenery, friendly community & recreational delights - walking tracks, fishing & beachcombing. The Waiotahe Estuary is also popular for white baiting, floundering, gathering pipis or exploring with a kayak. Opotiki with great essential services is only 12Km away and Whakatane a 35Km drive through the beautiful Wainui area. Enjoy a refined Kiwi lifestyle, in an idyllic location with the opportunity to earn a steady secondary income.
