This stunning 4.8ha property, set in a little piece of paradise on the Banks Peninsula, would be the ultimate retreat for those seeking a change of lifestyle.
Surrounded by our NZ native bush, with an amazing view to the Akaroa Harbour, this beautiful homestead has been refurbished to a very high standard.  The French Colonial styling gives this place a light and bright feel, along with open plan spaces and a mezzanine floor. Two of the bedrooms take in panoramic views to the ocean and mountains opening out to a veranda overlooking a cottage garden filled with the chorus of bird life.
You are also blessed with the added luxury of pristine drinking water direct from the springs.
Included is the separate beautifully presented self contained luxury cottage.  Any couple would love to spend time chilling out, or perhaps add a spa on the veranda to enjoy the amazing views in a secluded quiet setting.
Four sheds, two with 3 bays to stable your horses or an animal of your choice.  Fully deer fenced with 13 paddocks with troughs, you can graze beef, sheep, horses, lamas or set your own tourist industry up farming different animals.
Amongst this gorgeous property you have your own walkway to enjoy native bush, a stream with small waterfalls, pond full of beautiful lillies plus a seat to sit and take in the whole experience.
Once the summer home of renowned writer Armistead Maupin, the property was acquired by his sister, J. Yates and her late husband, Joe, in 1993.  Lovingly restored in 1996 the enchanting 1860’s colonial home, gorgeous French farm style accommodation. Esteemed visitors such as Sir Ian Mckellen (who says “Kahikatea is Middle-earth”) have enjoyed the relaxation of Te Rangi.
