This whimsical 70sqm cottage features an enchanting Rose window and native wood cabinetry in the open plan kitchen. The flooring is also native timber and this gives a pleasing ambiance in the living space which is warmed by a generous woodburner. French doors lead out to the verandah and from here the landscape views are extensive and attractive. Part of the verandah has been enclosed making a sheltered dining area and space for summertime sleepovers. There are two bedrooms and a quaint retro bathroom. The 13.95 acres are in easy rolling to flattish pasture with a rambling pond tucked into tall trees. There's even a wee hut here.
Last summer 500 hay bales were cut and currently 3 horses graze contentedly. There's a home orchard by the cottage with apple, pear, cherry, lemon, apricot, feijoa, olive, walnut and pinenut trees and also by the cottage there is a double garage and at the far end of the acreage there's a 'retired' deer shed and a large open faced barn. Its just 3 km to Orakei Korako geothermal tourist attraction (with a cafe!) and an easy drive to a Waikato River boat ramp so this property enjoys some really special extras. Taupo town is just 33km and Rotorua is just 66km.
