Ideal for outdoor enthusiasts, this charming abode is located on the scenic Tuki Tuki River Valley. A light and airy ambiance welcomes you inside where vaulted ceilings soar. Window walls look out to a lush, rolling landscape. Pick up a bottle of wine, sip, and savor in front of the verdant farmland views from the terrace.
Natural stone engulfs the front door, giving the rustic dwelling a natural aesthetic against its wood-paneled façade. Spread out over a single level, an eclectic array of furnishings create a homey appeal. Vibrant pops of ocean-inspired artwork accent the walls. Panoramic vistas of the Te Mata Peak ridgeline are visible from the backyard gazebo; the experience of watching the sun setting and rising over the undulating hills never gets old. The sun-drenched alcove seat is the perfect place to curl up with a book. Cooking connoisseurs will appreciate the gourmet, convivial kitchen at the heart of the house. An alfresco table invites the whole gang to gather around on breezy evenings. 
Although totally secluded, the property is just a 15-minute drive from tree-lined Havelock North, where the thriving art scene is not to be missed. Trout fishing is within walking distance from your doorstep as well as river swimming, kayaking, and extensive hiking trails. Nearby seaside village Waimarama is home to popular surf breaks with golden stretches of shoreline and a quaint coastal café; popular for picnics, pack a basket and dine beachside.
