8 minutes drive to Russell Village and popular Long Beach and closest beach 3 minutes walk down track across the road. With panoramic peeps of the sea through bush clad surrounds from most places within the house and decks, this house was built in 1983 to a high standard. The house is designed for indoor/outdoor living, and has multiple living spaces within. It is built to a typical Russell 'style' with exposed Douglas Fir ceilings and open plan living. Fantails flutter around visitors to the garden and the house is named after this delightful tame and friendly little bird... Piwakawaka - loved by all.
Ideal for two families or extended family. Any family can walk into this house and feel instantly at home due to its open plan layout and mezzanine floor connecting all areas of the house. Three bedrooms are roomy and well appointed while a fourth is smaller, but a delightful space. Additional sleeping space on mezzanine floor.
The vegetable garden produces seasonal goodies and oyster lovers will enjoy a tasty treat purchased directly from the oyster farm nearby or can have the served to them by local restaurants. However nothing can beat the flavour of that freshly caught snapper.
