This is a truly special home built with love. Sitting on almost 14 hectares of land including four fenced grazing paddocks and native bush areas with access to two rivers on the property. The areas surrounding the house are perfect for enjoying alfresco dining, with a choice of the covered deck to admire Blueskin Bay views or the sheltered rear paved courtyard area. This home was designed by Richard Wilden – a well-known Dunedin architectural designer and features all the ambience of a post and beam cavity built straw bale home with thermal performance and sound insulating qualities.
The lower level with warm wooden floors has open plan family friendly living heated by a wood-burner on wetback. There are 2 bedrooms and the bathroom off this open space making it easy to heat. The kitchen with warm wooden teak cabinets and black granite counter tops will be a delight to work in with the gas hob and electric double oven. The kitchen leads to the laundry and extra storage space. The spacious bathroom with underfloor heating has a wet floor shower as well as separate deep bath, toilet and vanity basin. The upper level is carpeted and has master bedroom with views to the Bay plus an open office space and a walkway bridge to a 2nd living space. The attention to detail with well positioned sky lights, wooden trim, pitched ceilings, quality carpeting, and character features make this a home with heart. Outside there is a plenty of off street parking plus a four-bay utility barn shed with a lined studio room with loft area.
All within a short distance of the Blueskin Bay amenities including the local school and play centre, the Blueskin Nursery and Cafe, the local store, art gallery, library, the Orokonui eco-sanctuary and the local monthly market. If you have always wanted a lifestyle surrounded by beaches, local walking and biking tracks in a rural setting, yet still be a 20-minute drive to Dunedin, this exceptional character property may just be the perfect one for you.
