A unique hideaway

Set among Nikau palms, Rimu trees, native bush and a gloriously overgrown garden, tucked away from all and sundry, sits Peter's beloved cottage in the little village of Morere, It's a property that may delight those who like things to be a little different, more peace and quiet, less of the white picket fence... 5 Possum Bend comprises 1.48 acres in total, including a fenced area for the kunikuni, and there is absolutely no need for a lawnmower here.

The wee two bedroom house has a modern kitchen and dining area, with a freestanding fireplace. There is a little lounge and a bathroom with a shower. The sunshine hits the home and the decking for most of the day - in summer you can make your way to the river for a dip. For winter warmth, there is a shed, stacked with firewood.

Morere is located between Gisborne and Wairoa, on the East Coast. Morere Spring and the Tea Room are nearby. Nuhaka is just down the road, where there is a primary school, the Nuhaka Village store and the famed Nuhaka Fish and Chip shop. Wairoa township and Mahia Peninsula are perhaps 20 minutes drive away (in opposite directions) There is a daily bus that passes to the schools, Napier and Gisborne.

This property is something special, with one of a kind gardens, in a magical corner of New Zealand. Could it be your special retreat?
