Pool your resources and experience a self-sufficient, off-grid lifestyle in this magical Golden Bay location. This unique "hands-on" 7.83 hectare property has been developed to comfortably cater for three generations, especially those who value peace, nature, self-sufficiency and environmentally-sound principles.

Situated about 500 metres above sea level, you will enjoy breath-taking sea and mountain views surrounded by mature beech forest and prolific birdlife. Well-developed gardens and substantial workshop/studio spaces compliment the rustic four bedroom house and also a separate one bedroom cabin; both of which abound with artistic flair, glowing timber features, and fine craftsmanship. Utilising a micro-hydro and solar power scheme, both homes are heated by wood-burners and have modern bathrooms as well as outdoor baths for stargazing.

Bird Road is located near Pohara beach, Port Tarakohe, and the scenic Abel Tasman National Park. Schools are only a 10-15 minute drive, and the Takaka township is a mere 20 minutes from the property.

Spectacular sunsets and starlit skies will inspire creativity and relaxation, enjoyed from a multitude of balconies or vantage points. If you are looking for an established property to experience an alternative back-to-nature lifestyle, a communal living environment or a secure Southern Hemisphere bolthole, this fascinating property must certainly be viewed to be appreciated.
