2 Sites each with an electrified building - 60m2 Barn Conversion!


Hello to all good people!

I am a single guy who has quit Auckland for a 2.2 acre lifestyle block I am renovating long term with help from my dad who is retired. 

There is 3bed 2bath 130m2 house with garage and woodshed and tankwater.

But we are also preparing 2 other sites availabe for rent long or short term for very well suited to someone who is bringing some kind of additional portable or mobile home currently consisting of:

1st SITE: 60m2 BARN +

A 60m2 barn with concrete floor electricity, running water, toilet, no hot water. There is an insulated bedroom 12m2 and bathroom. Current renovations in progress include 2.4m2 ranchslider entrance, pot belly and outside alcove, a 12m2 sheltered concrete pad.

Next year we will add a carport, and laundry area for access by both sites.

2nd SITE: 2 x 10m2 CABINS

A 10m2 sleep out with electricity and concrete seating area, concrete foundations for an adjacent 10m2 cabin have been laid, and there will be a second sheltered area prepared allowing for parking up a large vehicle or tiny house etc behind the two cabins, and this forms a private, sheltered area behind the house.

My long term plan is 3 households: the current house, the current barn conversion + additional buildings, and finally an additional entirely offgrid home, which may also present a long term opportunity.

A sustainable permaculture food forest will cover whatever land is not being used otherwise by the households, it is currently mostly rewilding, we have a dam that currently dries up annually, and also a 25m2 Greenhouse located closer to the barn.

In winter I am overseas, and my father is also coming and going, so although their maybe some added responsibilities, you will have acces to use of the main house when it gets coldest, but we are flexible, there is the possibility the 3bed 2bath house could be vacated for a larger group and we will make use of the other sites.

We are looking for expressions of interest, at this stage, temporary and short term stays are most welcome as the facilities still require a bit of work, and we need to increase our water storage over summer. Many of the items required have been purchased, so anyone who is handy, would be quite useful short term at this stage!
