Sanctuary of seclusion
Bordered by nature in the picturesque setting of Pigeon Bay, this exceptionally private five-bedroom home provides a genuine sense of retreat and will appeal to those seeking a permanent hideaway or weekend getaway. This 31.25ha hectare property weaves superbly into the unspoilt native bush and includes 5.1ha pre and post 1990 commercial forest. Macrocarpa milled on-site and Lawson cypress were used in the home’s construction in 1996. Timber is showcased in the ceilings and floors while sizeable sliders upstairs and down to frame the idyllic environment that stretches as far as the water. Crafted over two floors and offering a flexible layout, open plan living areas, bedrooms and bathrooms can be found on both levels. Upstairs a study and kitchenette are a convenient bonus. Rhododendrons are a feature of the easy-care gardens where a flourishing orchard presents the opportunity to savour seasonal fruit. Explore your own backyard by wandering the bush and meandering alongside the three brooks that wind through this utterly spectacular property. Two outbuildings and a spacious internal access double garage with mezzanine provide additional storage options. Pigeon Bay caters to recreation and relaxation both on the water and on dry land, and with Akaroa within a 20-minute drive, it ensures you can immerse yourself in the culture, restaurants and numerous offerings that are available in the historical French settlement.
