The space
Our 257sqm, C J Allen Homestead is the oldest house in Kakahi, built in 1905. A few renovations later sees the house as comfortable, well positioned and inviting. The historic village of Kakahi is well known for it's trout fishing, Manu's authentic country general store, the glow worm cutting, and inspiring acclaimed New Zealand artist Peter McIntyre.

Kakahi is an easy drive to many adventures in the region. Kakahi Adventure Lodge provides a place where time stands still. The lodge sits at one end of the village, is private, sunny and peaceful. The night sky is vast and unspoiled by light pollution.

I have lived in Kakahi for 5 years. After meeting the lovely Mike, I left my corporate Auckland job, sold my house in the hills and embraced a life of peace and quiet in the beautiful countryside. I love it! I spend my time in my large gardens, making improvements to Mike's once bachelor pad, sewing, and looking after my lovely grandchildren, Konna and Evie

The house we have just listed is the one time homestead of Mike's grandparents, and the house he grew up in, so it has very special meaning to us. We have worked hard to breathe new life into the house and maintain it's unique feel. The house seems to come alive when there are people in it!

Mike and I are both well traveled and enjoy meeting travelers. We have a simple life philosophy and are very much into sustainable living. We try to maintain a small footprint on the earth and your assistance in this is hugely appreciated. Be aware that once you have visited Kakahi, you will want to come back! The tranquility and sleepiness gets into your being! We look forward to seeing you soon.
