Seldom do properties such as this come to the market but retiring vendors of 30 years have decided the time has come.
This is a wonderful location, peaceful and private with wonderful bird song. Set on 13.1369 hectares or 32.5 acres approx. this charming 100m2 home is both easy-care and warm. Commanding beautiful views of the Purau Valley, Purau Bay and Mt Evans, if you are looking for peace and privacy then this one could be for you.
Set well off the road the house has 2 double bedrooms, 2 living areas, lovely decking and one bathroom. North East facing and sheltered with a garage/ workshop adjacent to the house. The garden is easy care and the land is a mixture of pasture in 5 paddocks for grazing, some bush and about 250 approx. 30 year old pine trees ready for harvesting.
The property is well fenced and has an excellent water supply, a small stream and a natural pond. Further down the driveway there is a set of yards, a 4 bay implement shed, a tractor shed with high stud and a large high stud workshop with 3 phase power. There is also a semi derelict house from about the 1930s on the property.
This is an idyllic location and perfect for a retiring farmer, someone wanting to get into the firewood business or someone with a portable mill to make use of all the trees.

Purau Bay is approximately 30 minutes’ drive from Christchurch, making it a highly desirable destination as it is so useable being close to Chch. Properties in this lovely valley and by such a safe swimming beach are defying all the odds and selling fast generally as they come up very seldom.
Excellent swimming, boating, walking and stunning sunsets on the hills, quick and easy access to Lyttelton via the Diamond Harbour ferry (approx. 5 mins), local shops, cafés and bar make this a fun filled place to visit. Properties here make an excellent investment and Purau Bay and valley is a truly magical place to live.
