Nestled high in the bush with exceptional views from every window, this property is nothing short of extraordinary. The post and beam constructed home has been lovingly handcrafted with straw bale in-fill, cement/lime plaster and native timbers throughout. There are three generous bedrooms with a spacious nook that could easily become a fourth. Along with two bathrooms, a separate toilet, an open office and a mezzanine space, these rooms are spread out over two levels. A third level is occupied by an expansive open plan kitchen/dining/living room with impressively high ceilings. The natural timber and Rangitata stone flooring easily flow out to a large deck with inbuilt seating and incredible views of Little Mt Peel and the Canterbury Plains. An internal garage, separate laundry and plenty of storage fulfil the practical requirements, and the kids will love the secret spaces and sneaky doors. Two quaint studios hide in the garden, and a separate, large, fully enclosed shed is complete with power and water, has endless possibilities. Options available to lease the neighbouring land. If you are looking for a better life, you might just find it here in Peel Forest.
