About this listing
Weave together your aspirations and create a legacy for the future. Here is an extraordinary opportunity to draw your vision from the surrounding ancient landscape steeped in early missionary history and guarded by a magnificent, towering rain-forest entrance. A sturdy, three-bedroom cottage with warm timber interior, handsome Stanley stove and covered verandas all connect intimately with the grandeur of the embracing native environment. The adjoining A-frame artist's studio is perfectly positioned to draw inspiration from the rising sun, ever-changing shadows throughout the day and crisp, pure birdsong from surroundings alive with nature. Fantails, Tui, Kingfishers and Kereru are all tame and trusting; Kiwis fearlessly explore the verandas of the home. Meandering through the forest you will be overwhelmed with its moods of reverence, melancholy, and spirituality.
This secluded property, with an abundance of pure water, will sate the souls of environmentalists, visual artists, writers, poets, composers and historians. Gentle rolling pasture fans out across the orchard, past a tranquil dam and meanders in and out past clusters of fascinating, cathedral trees. Journeying around the two titles on 10ha in historic Waimate North will stimulate your ideas and imagination; you will think differently about how this rare habitat should be developed to ensure low impact on the environment's future. There are endless possibilities from a health or meditation retreat, or visiting specialist groups, to environmental and artists-in-residence accommodation. Or, you may wish to just love this property 'as is' and create a magical playground for your children and grandchildren; a place that will fill them with lasting memories no matter where their travels take them in the world. The property has an Open Space Covenant to protect one of the last pockets of primary rural bush in our region - generations to come will appreciate this foresight. Our vendors now invite you to consider this special sanctuary to provide your own legacy in the Bay of Islands.
