Full Description: THIS PROPERTY IS TO BE SOLD BY AUCTION ON SITE ON 18TH AUGUST AT 1.30 PM. (Unless Sold Prior) This whimsical 70 sqm 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. It’s 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.
