Discreetly located in Blackbird Valley and less than ten minutes' drive from Upper Moutere village, this charming cottage is an oasis of calm in a busy and uncertain world.
The home is beautifully maintained, impeccably presented and comprises open-plan living, a modern kitchen, two bedrooms, a laundry and a quaint bathroom complete with a roll-top bathtub. By retaining some of the original features, such as the timber joinery, and by adding new carpets and thoughtful décor, the vintage ambience has been skillfully preserved here.
For summer living there's a beautiful verandah, plus a generous, sheltered deck where you can relax and enjoy the exquisite rural and garden vistas. If it's too cold for al fresco living the log burner and heat-pump will keep you cosy, or you can potter about in the garage workshop, or the hobby room that's alongside the home. The Upper Moutere primary school bus comes to the gate and the Motueka High School bus is at the top of the road.
The 4110m² grounds provide a stunning backdrop to this cottage. There are ponds and walkways, lush lawns and arches along with flowers, shrubs and trees that almost jostle for position in the borders. Tuis sing constantly in the trees and the glasshouses, productive vegetable garden and the fruit and nut trees provide an almost endless bounty for your table. Truly this is paradise!
The vendors now have another project in the pipeline and are keen to move on, so I'm bringing this to auction at 11am on Saturday, December 5th - and there's no doubt, this WILL sell on the day, so register your interest with me now!
