Tucked away on Old Mountain Road, this magic small holding is around 17.10 hectares with grazing and pockets of native forest. The comfortable, three bedroom 1960's home (160sqm) is on an elevated site offering country, bush and mountain views. The multiple heat sources which include wood, gas, electric underfloor and heat pump ensure a cosy family home. Over the last decade the home has undergone upgrades that included the family bathroom and the kitchen, a feature of which is the American Oak cabinetry. A large wraparound deck off the lounge takes advantage of the north easterly aspect plus the back porch and spa are usefully positioned. Dependent on the season, the farm has been known to winter 15 rising 1 year old and 15 rising 2 year old mixed cattle on an estimated 12 effective hectares. The tracks, subdivision, fencing, spring water system and stock yards support this use. Pines cover a good half hectare and toward the top of the farm, native forest blends seamlessly with the neighbouring native forest. Storage and workshop space is provided by a double garage plus a large enclosed three bay shed on the back of which is a lean to and adjacent stock yard for animal handling. The easy-care gardens include a productive veggie patch and to add to the self-sufficient lifestyle, there's a chicken coop and pig sty. The Karamu and Te Pahu districts are popular for many outdoor pursuits such as horse trekking, hiking and biking. Primary schooling and some limited services are available at the nearby Whatawhata village (6km) and Te Pahu Primary is another option (16km). Hamilton CBD (18 km) provides for every other requirement. Our clients have loved their time here and, now ready to upsize, they've on the move.
