About this listing
Here is a remarkable combination of modern contemporary, mixed with eco-friendly strawbale and lifestyle options. This unique home was built with strength, warmth and views in mind. Featuring vast views over Pegasus Bay and up to the Kaikoura's from the extensive wrap around Belian decking; plus 12.3 acres of rolling hills that have not seen any sprays for at least 16 years.

The 3 levels are well insulated from the bottom to the top with 2 thermal mass walls through the heart of the home, concrete floors are all thermally isolated from the walls and double-glazed thermal break windows throughout. Heated by a logburner and solar panels for the water, you'll keep your power bills down in this ultra warm home. There are bespoke finishing's throughout, but the owners admit there is a little more to do and will leave those choices to the next custodians of this magical property.

Other features:
- No Covenants; one large paddock with established shelterbelts; small animal shelters and water.
- Ashley Rural water scheme fed into two holding tanks - 1 unit per 24hrs
- Two bay shed with high stud, plus 2 glasshouses and raised vege beds.
- Landscaped spa area, complete with Trueform Spa
- Waste is processed by an Oasis Septic system

Just 10 mins drive to Amberley and 40 mins to Christchurch, this location is perfect for those wishing to find a slice of paradise close to amenities. Owners are ready to downsize so call Victoria to organise a viewing or come through the open homes.
