Built circa 1918, this cottage, which is being sold fully furnished, sits towards the front of the large 1012sqm site and has generous living as well as two good-sized bedrooms, a family sized bathroom and a fully enclosed porch providing covered entry into the home.
The open plan kitchen/dining area still has the original cabinetry with ample storage for all those kitchen appliances and equipment that are included in the sale. A built-in wood burner keeps the home warm and dry on colder days.
The home has been re-piled, re-wired & re-lined and the exterior has also been repainted in the last 12 months. A carport, 2nd toilet, combined laundry/drying room and woodshed make up the attached outbuildings. Although most of the hard work has already been done, you still have a world of opportunity to further develop this property into your dream home.
Directly across the road is a huge reserve with playground, tennis & basketball courts, rugby fields and a Centre for Squash. The Mangawhero and Manganui-a-te Ao trout fishing rivers as well as a range of bike trails are all accessible from Raetihi including the famed Mangapurua Track to the Bridge of Nowhere.
Raetihi is equal distance to Tūroa and Whakapapa Ski areas and is an ideal base to explore the spectacular scenery and activities the Ruapehu region offers. The town's wide main street reflects the pioneering history of Raetihi, and historic buildings include the Theatre Royal, Bank Of New Zealand and at the Waimarino Museum inside the relocated Railway Station.
