Ever thought about living in an ecologically minded community, away from it all? Even better - how about living "off the grid" (own power/water sourced) on one of the world's most beautiful island, recently voted one of the world's top 10 regions?
For sale is a 1/15th share in a unique coastal block of approximately 169 hectares (418 acres) at the northern tidal extremity of Awaawaroa Bay and part of an eco-village. The owners are "green-minded", community spirited, live in a sustainable and sharing way and friendly. Community facilities include a large stunning mud-brick hall (in pictures), tractors, olives, forestry, vineyards, animals & even a maze! The other 14 owners all have dwellings with Solar and/or wind power and their own water and sceptic tanks. Water is collected from rainfall.
The share for sale is a house site (1/2 acre) towards the North West area of the land (most private spot) and an additional cleared allotment close by for growing and/or animals (1/2 acre). A resource consent with permission to build is included - the design rules are on the website link below.
The house site is a slightly elevated, easy contour flat block with a South facing view, surrounded by steeper bush clad slopes. A stream passes through beside a Totara forest - the only site with running water. Fruit (best lemons in the eco-village!) olive & natives have been planted throughout. A farm track runs past the house site up to a forestry block for use by the shareholder and to a ridge where the most breath-taking 360 degrees views are available (including the Hauraki Gulf). The second half hectare is an alluvial flat which is an easy walking distance from the house site and joins the same stream. This beautiful, sun drenched section is nice and flat and perfect for a large food garden or some vines perhaps?
The eco-village is only 5 kilometres away from amenities and the main commercial centre for the island is some 15 kilometres away.
