Acreage Semi-rural - Reikorangi Kapiti Coast
An outstanding opportunity to add value & bring out the best this circa 1900’s solid weatherboard character villa offers. Set privately on 1.6 acres of peaceful country living within a 10mins drive of Waikanae train station, Waikanae school & shops, perfectly placed for those with a city commute.
Affectionately known as “Ngatiawa Cottage” the farm house home features all the unspoiled romance of its age including wide veranda decks, original open fireplaces, solid timber floors, high stud ceilings, original sash windows, decorative hallway corbels & original paneled doors. A spacious kitchen has a wood-chip fire set into the chimney, the bathroom & laundry – all ready to be renovated. The main house was re-roofed & insulated around 2005. An informal attached studio offers further potential. Great project for builders, DIY & renovators who appreciate the era.
The section of around 6,506sqm has been managed “CHEMICAL FREE” so could be ideal for grazing or growing organically. Free-range chickens, established olive groves, orchard fruits, future firewood trees & a magnificent ancient Chestnut tree. An abundance of traditional fruiting & flowering plants & masses of spring bulbs, roses & herbs attracting Kereru, Tui & Fantail all delight the senses & feed the soul.
A once in a lifetime opportunity. – viewing welcome by prior appointment.
