OWNER HAS GONE THE EXTRA MILE

Milnthorpe is a coastal settlement famed for the park of the same name, a regeneration project with a myriad of walking tracks. This property has been nurtured in much the same way providing a lush green environment vibrant with bird song. The current owner has gone the extra mile and built much further back from the road than any of the neighbouring properties to make the most of this stunning location.

The site offers shelter from the prevailing westerly wind and jaw droppingly beautiful views from Farewell Spit to Separation Point and D'Urville Island beyond. The 18 acres of regenerating bush straddles the ridge-line and from the back of the property you look out over the entire Aorere Valley.

The two storey accommodation makes the most of the inspiring views overlooking the Parapara Estuary and the bay with a large balcony off the upstairs room; the vaulted ceiling is lined with timber and Macrocarpa beams, alluding to the quality and craftsmanship incorporated in this building. On the ground floor is a compact open plan kitchen dining area opening onto a veranda where you can watch native birds feed. The shower room has a composting toilet. The accommodation is double glazed and well insulated and heated by a Woodsman log burner which has a wetback. Hot water is also heated by Solar panels. Cooking is on an electric stove and rainwater is collected in a 30,000 l plastic tank. The greywater tank and reticulation system is of sufficient size to service future development.

Milnthorpe is a coastal settlement situated between Kahurangi National Park and the beautiful sandy beach of Milnthorpe. Shops, postal services, and petrol are located at Collingwood approximately 7km west and more services at Takaka 19km east.
