Discover New Zealand's "best kept secret" and cash in on a growing niche tourism industry in an exquisite location. Karamea is a natural wonderland, a fisherman's paradise and perfect for those who enjoy the outdoors or seek a property with further development potential. An elevated 2.3 hectare flat plateau with regenerating natives and eucalyptus would be ideal for accommodation development; while an expansive studio space, garaging for four vehicles and a sleepout with a bathroom also allow for a multitude of lifestyle and work from home options.
Never before offered for sale, this authentic country home glows with the golden tones of native timbers hand-selected and milled; standing proudly as a testimony to fine workmanship and honest construction. Harking to a simpler era, stained glass windows, sumptuous tiled bathrooms and inbuilt furniture, combine with a log burner and wood-fired kitchen range to evoke the romance and easy comfort of days gone by. North-facing and overlooking the Karamea River, this warm three bedroom home enjoys all day sun and an enchanting vista of lush green forest, pristine trout-laden waters, and the wild mountains and coast beyond. Professionally landscaped gardens feature Nikau palms, outdoor entertaining spaces, and of course a bountiful orchard and vegetable garden.
Karamea River is a fisherman's dream; trout fishing and whitebaiting (in season), with kahawai fishing and surf-casting from the beach and river mouth). The district has a relaxed "off the beaten track" feel, a secluded haven between mountains and sea on the mild northwest corner of the West Coast, South Island. Enveloped by the Kahurangi National Park, Karamea caters for the tramper and caver, the bird watcher and mountain biker, hunter and fisherman...or simply those seeking to get away from it all. A spectacular 90 minute drive from Westport, it is a mere five minute drive to Karamea where there is a range of services, shops and cafes, an aerodrome, and a school catering for Years 1-13.
