Beautiful comfortable family home nestled in its own forest with private walks surrounded by birdsong and wildlife. Ideal for families or couples, for work or holiday. 15 mins from Wellington City and beach. Car maybe available.
This is our family home that is designed for entertaining, relaxation and work. It has a fully equipped kitchen, study with 2 desks and wifi throughout the house, TV room with Netflix, 2 wood burners with plenty of wood, books, table tennis table, darts etc. There are mountain walks from the house; the famous Skyline walkway around Wellington's hills starts at the gate; you can explore various walks on our own land; there is a stream close by with a rope swing. It is an eco house with its own solar panels for heating water and generating electricity with a back up generator that automatically comes on if the batteries are low. Water is collected from the roof into our water tanks and plentyful.
The entire house and land is available.
Interaction with guests
We will be on holiday but we have friends who know the house and land very well who will help with handovers and live nearby and can assist throughout
Other things to note
Our cleaner comes in every Thursday morning from 8.30-12 noon unless you don't want her to come
To open our electric gate, we can leave guest a pay as you go phone which can open the automatic gate at the top of the land remotely; gate otherwise opens with infrared fob.
The house is 1.3 km down our track which is very well maintained and is suitable for all vehicles
No parties or events please
Smoking outside please but bare in mind that we are surrounded by forest
There is plenty of power but it helps if you don't leave lights on unnecessarily and turn off plugs of electrical equipment such as music and TV to preserve batteries.
No chemicals in toilets as sewage system relies on earthworms; no fat or coffee grains down the sink and no bleach for cleaning
Clothes drier, iron and electric kettle are better used when direct sunlight on solar panels.
If you use bath as opposed to showers, you may want to have the wetback (back boiler) burning wood.
