Large “country –like” two storied character… close to the Pacific Ocean in the South Island of NZ
Possibly France (Alsace) or Germany (South) or Berlin in the future
Hidden behind a hedge nestled among well established trees and a large rambling garden our lovely rustic home was a wonderful place to raise three happy sons.Built in the 1920’s visitors,family and friends have always admired its charming character.
Now that we have retired and our sons have left home we have plenty of room and also welcome families to stay.
With 4 double bedrooms,(sleeps 8 )two separate living rooms,a separate dining room,2 studys,separate farmhouse kitchen and three out door entertaining areas to choose from there is lots of space.
A disused grass tennis court and a large vegetable garden To help the bee population in the world we host a bee hive in a faraway section of the garden out of harms way. Our sunny upstairs large rumpus room has a projector to screen TV and movies for family entertainment or downstairs in the formal sitting room
Timaru is two hours south of Christchurch International airport and three hours North of Dunedin or the central Otago Queenstown area and Timaru even has its own domestic airport with flights in and to Wellington twice a day!
Our neighbourhood is very safe and quiet in a cul de sac and because our house is secluded it feels very private as if we were in the countryside.
Depending on the current situation there could possibly be a car to use(five seater)...but this would depend on our plans at the time.
There is a local bus into the town centre but it would be a five minute walk to the nearest bus stop and is very infrequent.
Again depending on the season and the duration of your stay there might possibly be an obligation to water the vegetables and flower gardens
The Timaru down town centre is seven minutes drive away but within five minutes are two separate shopping malls complete with large supermarkets,pharmacies,shoe shops and Post offices.
Five minutes walk away is a quiet cheap Golf Course that welcomes casual golfers.
