Tairua | 232 Hikuai School Road
Onion Creek - Retreat & Relax
The road sign says "Slow Down", but really means "take it easy". You might just meet children riding to Hikuai School on horseback. Not that many vehicles come this way.
There are only a few homes up this valley. Onion Creek trickles and bubbles its way to the Tairua River and the sea nearby. The moment you emerge from the bush lined drive, see the wood pigeons and quail fossicking, you'll know you've arrived in a very special place. You've left the hustle and bustle behind and emerged in a place of solitude and natural beauty.
With a backdrop of craggy peaks and a canopy of bush, the home is set within park-like paddock and pasture. Enjoy a variety of subtropical fruit trees and vines, established gardens and a local swimming hole. You'll feel compelled to stay and make your mark in this delightful part of the world.
The three bedroom home is warm and friendly, while outbuildings and a utility shed provide opportunity to create and add value. Originally set up as a horticultural enterprise, the property lends itself to a home based business. Whether it's growing fresh greens for the markets, setting up an eco retreat, or an artist's studio and gallery, this slice of paradise will inspire you.
Onion Creek is a rare opportunity. Seize it and change your life. For the better.
