Set on the banks of the Wairau River, this historic property can tell many a story. It is the site where travellers in the 1800's gathered to be ferried across the river. Along a short bush walk at the end of the garden, you find Cawtes Cave overlooking the river. It is where passengers took shelter and a great place for family fun today.
Beautifully renovated to enhance the native timber floors and joinery, the home has been set up primarily for executive accommodation. With a well-appointed kitchen, gas cooking, dining areas inside and out, a sitting room with an open fire and two ensuited bedrooms, it provides comfort over and above that expected in a house of this era.
Established swathes of native trees and shrubs, walkways, natural rock outcrops, an orchard of heritage fruit trees, flowing lawns and swimming holes are all features of this extremely appealing garden. It is perfect for weddings and other celebrations, family activities for all ages or just as a relaxing place to sit back and listen to native birdsong.

This wonderful riverside lifestyle property will appeal to anyone looking for peace and privacy, handy to town. RV: $740,000.
