The property has recently undergone an amazing transformation with some extensive harvesting of surrounding pine, opening up the spectacular ocean views from bedrooms and living areas, while still retaining privacy and the character that makes this property so very unique. Architect designed to the owner’s brief to maximise the features of both the location and sustainability values. The house has all the comforts and luxury you’d expect of a quality modern home with the added benefit of no expensive power bills as the house generates all the power it needs from solar and wind energy. Accommodation consists of three large bedrooms on the lower level, all facing north with floor to ceiling sliding glass doors onto the sunny patio area with stunning sea views. There’s also a large family bathroom and spacious en-suite off the master bedroom, and a large additional lounge/family room with sliding doors allowing you to open the front of the house right up to maximise the views, sea breeze and sunshine. Upstairs is a light and bright, modern and functional family kitchen with dishwasher and with hob and oven running off bottled gas. There’s also a dining area, cloak room and additional lounge with a huge north facing corner window to maximise the views and allowing sunlight to stream in. The entire house is beautifully warm, being fully double glazed throughout and well insulated using sheep’s wool and taking advantage of the additional earth insulation of the grass roof over the lower levels. When extra warmth is needed, there’s a log burner and there is underfloor heating on both levels. A wood-fired boiler backs up the solar hot water, and there’s a diesel generator as a back-up power source should it be required. Standard 240v wiring runs throughout the house allowing the use of standard appliances and technology throughout. The 209 sqm house sits on just over 5ha, which includes some pruned and thinned radiata pine which provides an endless supply for the log burner. The house is completely private with plenty of cleared space to allow for a few sheep, and maybe some chooks and a vege garden to allow for even more sustainability. Outside, there’s a large wood shed and a 4 bay workshop/implement shed, and the beach is a short walk from the house. The surrounding area is home to some amazing wildlife including seal colonies and yellow-eyed penguins, and the Moeraki Boulders are a short drive up the road. Amenities are all nearby – local shops and cafes are approximately 10 mins away at Palmerston, and Dunedin city centre around 60kms away. This is a unique opportunity to own an environmentally conscious, modern, off-grid home in one of the most beautiful parts of Otago, where the ocean meets the forest and with perfect ocean views.
