Exclusive Coastal Land & Garden Lifestyle

This is a unique coastal lifestyle property of approx 7.78 ha (roughly 19 acres) on its own headland extending to the high tide mark with breathtaking ocean and coastline views and panoramic views of the mountains and farmland to the east.

The home is a late-1990s, well-maintained, 2-storey, 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom home covering a generous 244sqm floor area with an open plan layout, conservatory, internal access double garage, storeroom and workshop. The kitchen has been upgraded and has a gas cooktop (via bottled supply) and there is a freestanding log fire with wetback.
The upstairs bedrooms are spacious with vaulted ceilings and exposed beams while the downstairs bedroom and bathroom could provide extra guest accommodation.

A sheltered loggia overlooking a delightful pond and garden area is perfectly positioned for watching the children racing around playing with wild abandon. Or simply enjoy the more grownup pleasures of mindful reflection, yoga or artistry.

Outbuildings include a potting shed, toilet and garden sinks, extra shed with a fitted workshop large enough to accommodate a caravan or boat, two small sheds and chicken house. Potable and irrigation water is supplied via three units of town water.

Approx 6000sqm (1.5 acres) of land surrounding the pond is an established garden that has previously been endorsed as a New Zealand National Trust Garden rated Significant 4 Star. The quality of the garden has been maintained and a future owner may wish to reinstate the endorsement. Water enters the pond from rain water channeled from the house roof and there is an aeration pump. The balance of the land is relatively flat with clean pasture currently grazed by a neighbour's sheep.

Subject to approval the property's future might include community events, artists' workshops, function venue or a wellness retreat. There's so much here to be inspired by and get excited about.

The property's coastline is predominantly clifftop which may be walked/climbed down however at each side of the property (particularly at All Day Bay) there is readily available beach access. Kakanui, a 5min drive to the north, has a boat club with boat launching facilities. The lure of the city is an easy approx 1hr 15mins drive to Timaru while Dunedin is approx a 2hr drive.
