Your Private Rustic Retreat?
Seldom do you find spacious, well elevated lifestyle properties on the fringes of Mapua that have space, views, peace, privacy - and an affordable opportunity to make it your own! Surrounded by lush countryside, yet only a 5-6 minute drive to the centre of the village, the residence sits overlooking it's 2.23 hectares of north facing grounds comprising at least three fenced paddocks, a bush gulley with duck pond, a large vegetable garden; trees for firewood, a chook pen and a 'fruit bowl' orchard. Graze a few sheep; gather the ducks and chickens' eggs; you'll want for nothing here.
The rustic two-level shed conversion home features a warm timber finish and versatile floor plan that you can arrange to suit. The open-plan living features a log burner, a kitchen with custom-built timber cabinets and a huge sheltered verandah that has a laundry, toilet and a plumbed bathtub with hot water via solar or the wetback. Relax and bathe semi alfresco; enjoy the songs of the native birds, or perhaps star gaze in the evenings, with no light pollution to mar your view.
Also on the ground floor of the home are the bathroom, a pantry and two further good-sized rooms currently configured as hobby rooms, which you might want to use as bedrooms, supplementing the two double bedrooms upstairs, both of which have views; rural, bay and mountain.
The property has its share of outbuildings, too. A carport, a workshop, an office/sleep out, a caravan, chicken shelter and a goat milking shed. Consider self-sufficiency; store your hobby equipment, have an art studio. There's plenty of scope here to make things work your way.
In addition to all of the above, there's the location. Mapua is a delightful community with a primary school, library, health centre, shops and a vibrant wharf with bars and cafés. There are plenty of cycleways in the vicinity and of course, there's the beach, where you can launch your kayaks or paddleboards.
So, contact me to view; as the property is too secluded for a 'drive-by'. Come and take a look !
