About this listing

SOLD - This listing was sold in October 2015.

SOLD: Here is an alternative property to say the least, with two completely separate and characterful cottages (one previously an old barn) on a sea view acre ideal for horses. The charming and eclectically characterful 2 bedroom original cottage has wonderful old recycled character doors, windows and finishes, many of wrought iron, and railway sleeper staircase and lintels. The barn offers spacious open-plan living with a kitchenette that has a microwave/oven, a full bathroom and, upstairs, a mezzanine sleeping area. It also has a carport, and the building still boasts the original sliding barn doors.

From the wrap-around balcony of the cottage you look out over a full acre of lush, tree studded farmland towards beautiful distant views of Long Beach and the Atlantic Ocean. The whole property is well watetored by a well-point that could be converted to wind power. It also has paddocks and the flat contours make this a very good property for horses.

The cottage boasts many characterful hand crafted features such as the two enormous open hearth fireplaces on either side, a lovely sleeper staircase and a grand entrance. Downstairs a pretty, North-facing patio leads to a large open-plan lounge-dining room-kitchen with 2 enormous open hearth fireplaces at either end, a pantry/scullery with dishwasher and washing machine and a freestanding Smeg gas/electric stove with 2 gas bottles. There are blinds throughout, a satellite dish, a TV aerial and Wi-Fi throughout the whole property. The roof is Victorian profile galvanized iron.

Upstairs in the eaves is very secure, with a hand-made wrought iron security gate. There is a walk-through study/granddaughters' sleep-over bedroom and a main bedroom with full, semi-open plan ensuite and a stable door to the outside wrap around view balcony that takes in magnificent views of the surrounding mountains, valley and ocean.

A full burglar alarm system and custom made burglar bars are further enhanced by outside spotlights which can be switched on remotely and a camera security system. There is a remote controlled automatic front gate and a white painted timber cottage on the property - one room with kitchenette and bathroom. In the grounds there are also 25 fruit trees (apple, pear, peach, kumquat, lemon, limes, apricot, fig etc.), a duck pen and pond and an organic veggie garden. The well point has plentiful, crystal clear, drinkable water.

Totally livable as it is, the property would lend itself to expansion for someone with vision to create their perfect country homestead.
