2616 Raukawa Road Raukawa, Hastings, Hawkes Bay
Not quite “one out of the box” because it’s “one out of a container”. Indeed this is a truly unique property that offers a host of features that will appeal to those looking for a small lifestyle property. The 1.7ha embraces innovative and sustainable living by utilising a 40ft and a 20ft container constructed in New Zealand featuring superior insulation levels and double glazing to create a fabulous home that is both smart and functional (CCC was issued in 2018).
The thoughtful floor plan offers an open plan kitchen/dining area/sitting area, one double bedroom, separate bathroom and a separate living or second bedroom, all of which opens seamlessly through bi-folds to a large deck, perfectly positioned for the sun and an ideal spot to relax and soak up the ambient atmosphere of rural living.
The land is divided into three paddocks currently grazed by alpacas and in fact the 6 female alpacas with names like “Vitality, Starlight and Rockette” are an optional extra. But wait there is more, there is another building site (geo-tech report on file) that offers the potential for an extra dwelling and the current owner has planted the boundary with a selection of native trees.
The property is serviced by town power, an Eco rock wastewater system, and water is supplied by rain plus a natural spring found at the bottom of the property, which in turn is pumped by solar power to the container house.
Container living is sure to appeal to those looking for less hassle/ maintenance and to lower their carbon footprint, or those looking to get on the property ladder and/or seeking to further improve the property by adding another dwelling with country living in mind.
