The rear of the property meanders to a pretty gully where natives have been planted to enhance the habitat already in place for wildlife and birdsong, plus Manuka for beekeeping. Situated on the other side of the property, an additional one bedroom cedar cottage oozes charm with a sunny aspect and large deck, and is a cozy functional home perfect for the extended family or perhaps as a profitable BnB operation.
