Many people dream of owning a "cottage in the countryside with attached café and commercial use".
Here is the dream and all the hard work has been done. It is a testament to the owners' hard work and attention to detail in the presentation of this property. Consented for a café and gallery/retail/plant sales, this level 7073m² site, with a clean modern large house, 256m² of commercial building and 45m² covered outdoor seating. The private indoor and outdoor flow leads to a spectacular backdrop of native forest and a stunning waterfall. The grounds have been manicured to show off the Old English country garden style of roses, fruits and berries with sculptured meandering paths roaming under the exotic trees. Over 13 types of trees bearing fruits and nuts, most very mature offering significant crops.
The wide frontage offers two entry points for vehicle access and could accommodate over 40 cars which enables excellent scope for commercial uses.
This "Garden of Eden" is truly looking for an enthusiastic creative owner to implement their own genre and commercial use so they can capture the local tourist route at the front door and satisfy the affluent exploding local population looking to acquire a quality café/restaurant they can recommend as their go-to place or "local".
