At the heart of the Rangitumau community is the original settlers homestead that started life in the 1880’s. Set in a mature natural setting with views across a private lake to the farmland and Tararua ranges beyond, you will be a part of living New Zealand history here. With renovations and additions across the decades, this home has recently had major improvements under the current ownership including the steel roof being reconditioned, installation of a three zone ducted air conditioning system, clean-water septic system and a new open fire as well as extensive landscaping.
There is a school run from the gate as a part of the Opaki School catchment, as well as to town schools and colleges.
While the house has five bedrooms, a study/bedroom and three bathrooms available across two floors you may wish to use some as a library, offices, or rumpus room and still home a large family. One wing of the home could easily be separated to provide inter-generational living or a separate accommodation offering.
The grounds include a large in ground pool, essential for the hot summers living here.
The incredibly private setting of mature native and exotic trees along with a permanent stream running through the property, supports an extensive range of bird species and flora you will enjoy in this tranquil location. Bittern have been sighted here as well as breeding waterfowl including Shoveler, Teal and Paradise Ducks amongst others. Ruru, Tui, Korimako and many other native birds are permanent residents. There is an additional wetland area to the lakes as well as recent plantings of native and exotic species.
The property is in two titles- the homestead on 4 ha – the second being 2 ha with an incredible elevated build site and unsurpassed views across the valley to the mountains . Available for purchase together or separately.
An Absolutely enchanting property which is deserving of new caretakers who will cherish and embrace everything that nature and history have created over generations.
