Paradise in Pukawa - Holiday or Homey Home
"Our holiday place is a relaxing home away from home which we have enjoyed immensely with family and friends for the past 21 years".
Constructed in the mid-1980s, the three bedrooms are all generous doubles and in fact there are enough beds to accommodate 10 guests. The lounge features raked ceilings, a wood burner and provides access to the wraparound deck with expansive lake views. The home has been repainted inside and out. Privately positioned at the end of the shared driveway the home is situated on pole foundations essentially allowing all the living to be on one level. A new concrete driveway has recently been poured so that capital outlay will ensure quality access for many years in to the future. Also on the property is a separate shed (unconsented).
Favourite pastimes have been reading and barbecues on the deck overlooking the lake with views stretching across to Kuratau and Omori. There is an abundance of beautiful and sometimes challenging bush and river walkways within 15 to 30 minutes drive, and, in fact, right on the doorstep of number 70.
The bird life is plentiful. No 70 has a resident tom tit living in the driveway area, and tui, bellbirds and kereru regard the property as their special retreat as well. If you feel a sprinkle of water while sitting on the deck, look up and almost certainly it will be a tui or wood pigeon having a bird bath in the spouting and enjoying your companionship at the same time. The morning bird song, once heard, stays with you forever.
Pukawa is also well-serviced in terms of rubbish collection and road and track maintenance, and there is an excellent refuse centre at Omori, where there is also access to fishing licences, petrol, boat storage and firewood.
The house is ideally situated for kayaking and swimming in the lake, boat ramp and reserves and for trips to the mountain in winter for climbing, skiiing and alpine walking. The property is close to shopping in Turangi (where you can find all the basics, such as supermarket, butchery, hardware, pub etc) and and there is a beautiful scenic walk through the bush to Omori Store (for daily requirements, newspapers, milk, bread etc, and excellent espresso coffee served overlooking the lake).
This home is available fully furnished, complete with kayaks. Enquire now.
