Rural Bliss - The Roadmans Cottage – Handy to Tora

  • 1 Bed
  • 2 Car

An oasis in the middle of tranquil scenery with the river bubbling along over the road, views of scattered bush on farmland & just 6km down the road to the seaside. The cottage started life as a basic hut where workers would sleep after a hard day’s work maintaining the road for the County. It still retains the character of times gone by but is now a smart wee home. It has a master bedroom and a lounge room with log burner that keeps everything toastie & warm. There is a modern bathroom ( gas hot water ) with glass shower box, vanity & toilet - the kitchen is a delight with rimu cupboards and bench tops - gas oven & hobs and opens out to a covered verandah that catches the afternoon sun. The garden setting is lovely, easy care with a variety of trees & shrubs, lots of colour in the spring when the lilies and red hot pokers are out. A separate driveway leads up to a terrace where a modern double garage has recently been built – this would be a the spot to build with fabulous views of the surrounding countryside. There are two retro caravans up there for the overstaying friends and relatives. At one end of the 1 hectare property mature manukas cover the rolling terrain and here again you could build homestay cabins for just those looking for a peaceful escape. The infrastructure has been well thought out with three water tanks and a modern sewerage system positioned ready for a building on the terrace. The property is 40 kilometres from Martinborough – just over half an hour easy drive and country school some 7kms away. This could be your paradise. Open home Sunday 1st October 2.15 - 2.45 @ 747 Tora Road - ask Andrew 027 220 1049.
