Land available for a self-contained Tiny House for $80 pw in Stratford Taranaki. This northeast facing site, nestled at the base of Taranaki is just a 5 minute trip into town or up to the Stratford Plateau with easy access to the Manganui Ski Area and other great outdoor adventure activities. Living in central Taranaki means that work opportunities in New Plymouth, Hawera and Opunake are within an easy 30 minute commute.
The wider 3.5 acre property includes: two off grid dwellings, one of which is a 1896 cottage recently shifted on and renovated; well established vegetable gardens; orchard and a couple of large paddocks for grazing. Along the property boundary is the beautiful Mangarangi Stream which flows year round. Not only does the stream offer a couple of refreshing swimming holes in summer, but the lovely bush corridor also provides much privacy from the surrounding farm land. Developed on permaculture and organic principles, the property is part of the Taranaki Sustainable Backyards Trail and is open to the public once a year during the regional garden festival (www.sustainablebackyards.org.nz/stratfor).
The ideal candidate/s would be looking for a quiet spot in the country, be self-sufficient and share in sustainable living values. Ideally, someone who is happy to maintain their small area and keep it tidy. The site is expected to be available September 2019, but could be sooner. While the site has no power or water there is enough space to have your own vegetable garden and private access to the stream.
