A "Labour of Love" completed in 2012 and enjoyed for the last decade by its creators. Simplicity, strength, functionality, and forethought went into this lovingly crafted home to nestle it into its locale. Maximising the natural resources of slope, sun and water make this property unique and it will stand the test of time, allowing its owners to live in comfort and harmony very cost effectively. Potential to be totally off grid and the volcanic soil gardens offer the potential for abundant self-sufficiency. Using sustainable untreated timber and concrete panels, this home captures the winter sun and holds its heat creating thermal mass in the polished concrete floors. The construction, elevated level of wool insulation and double glazing ensures thermal efficiency is excellent. A new Homewood Woodstove is the centrepiece of the kitchen providing cooking, heating, and hot water. A sleepout and large beautifully constructed shed and covered area, built to the same high quality, will be the envy of many, right down to polished concrete floors. Trees ranging from olives, apples, almonds, quince, macadamia, avocado, feijoa, passionfruit, citrus trees and significant native trees are peppered throughout with 20 Puriri trees. There is year-round food for wood pigeons, tuis, and bellbirds alike. Abundant eucalyptus firewood is on offer and the Little Sydney stream meanders through the property providing water and the beautiful sound of nature, competing only with the plentiful birdsong. It is a mountain stream with granite boulders aerating the water and is mostly spring fed from the hills above. The intrinsic value of the location, the beautiful soil, the water supply and the forethought in the entire layout and process make this property one out of the box. Those who appreciate what is on offer will be fighting over this gem, and the work has been done. Only ten minutes from Motueka, up the end of a dead-end road, you feel worlds away.
