THIS week’s home is a rural charm.
Located a short drive from Winton, this property boasts acres of green space.
While the home itself needs some love to get it back to its former glory, the property offers plenty.
More than 200 fruit and nut trees come with the 1.6ha fenced property, providing a variety of edible treats.
This truly is a lifestyle property, ideal for those with a green thumb; the land comes with six tunnel houses in addition to the forest of trees.
Natural charm is the highlight to this property, as is evident by the expansive garden. This offers great, and private, views from the home.
The four-bedroom villa offers those with imagination a multitude of do-it-yourself possibilities.
Not only that, the ability to become self-sufficient is made realistic here with the property on septic tank for sewerage and tank water.
Chicken coops and garden sheds add to the theme of sustainable living.
While built in the 1910s, the house comes with a ready-to-be-installed new fireplace, as well as a new bathroom waiting to be built.
Inside the house, the kitchen provides plenty of storage and an electric cook-top in an open and spacious setting.
Large windows provide plenty of light to the home, particularly in the generously sized lounge area, as well as the bedrooms.
The trip to Invercargill is about a 25-minute drive, giving you the best of rural and urban living.
Winton being so close means the property is not isolated but is also far enough away from the hustle and bustle of town life.
