Weekend retreat or home, this property has a number of options. With its proximity to Lake Sumner and situated next to the Waitohi River, it would be an ideal bach. Lake Sumner Forest Park is just 12 kilometres further up the road and there are excellent fishing options in the Hurunui River and lakes Taylor, Sumner and Mason. Hunting and tramping and canoeing are some of many other activities on offer. The homestead comprises four bedrooms and an office and two living areas, which open onto a large verandah surrounding three sides of the dwelling. The kitchen features a Rayburn stove which has a wetback as well as an electric stove. The floors are polished rimu and there has been extensive use of tongue and groove Monterey cypress, Lombardy poplar and pine on the walls and verandah ceiling. In addition to the house there is a separate, self-contained flat and attached hobby room as well as a seven bay barn, which includes a workshop and storage room, both of which are concreted.
While there is plenty of room here for animals, consider cashing up the remaining hectare of trees, then replant six hectares and claim carbon credits. The previous rotation of trees yielded well, with volumes exceeding woodlots grown on the plains. This is worth a look.
