Affordable, Sustainable Lifestyle

At the end of a quiet country road, this approx 3.6ha lifestyle block offers a sanctuary of serenity and privacy. A trio of unique buildings dot the landscape, each contributing to the charm and functionality of this property. The centerpiece is the two-bedroom, old miner's cottage, a testament to Waihi's history, relocated decades ago, snuggled in between established native trees. Meanwhile, a barn is set up as a studio complete with a cob-detailed outhouse. Outdoor shower, composting toilet, his and her cast iron bathtubs warmed by crackling fires - it's a harmonious blend of nature & simplicity. A shed, adds an additional option.

The barn studio is surrounded by a home orchard that boasts an array of fruit trees, the property is a haven for those with a green thumb. A permaculture garden, shade houses, chicken coop, and a sandy-bottomed stream, contribute to a sustainable and self-sufficient lifestyle while five grazing paddocks cater to the livestock.

The barn studio, basking in all-day sun, offers elevated rural views over the property. Solar power epitomizes sustainable living, while also topping up power to the miner's cottage. Native trees, including Kauri, Totara, and Ake Ake, thrive. Lusitanica and Black Walnut trees, thoughtfully cultivated for milling, grace the property, much of the timber in the barn was milled from the property. Water, sourced from a bore, ensures a reliable supply.
