Stonefly Lodge offers a rare opportunity to reside within an area of outstanding natural beauty in a mindfully designed, environmentally sustainable, quality home. Surrounded by 50 hectares of private forest, the property was crafted from locally sourced timber and stone creating a warm, natural ambience whilst presenting luxurious spaces to relax and savour. Each room has been thoughtfully planned to maximise the stunning mountain and river views. Wake up to the chorus of Tuis, Fantails and Bellbirds and enjoy a morning coffee from your personal balcony. Located in the middle of three National Parks overlooking the Motueka River, the lodge is the perfect hideaway with no neighbours in sight. However, this private offering is only 1hr drive from Nelson airport and with a helipad on-site, 'fly-in/fly-out' access is a proven option. The Tasman region is known for its boutique wineries, arts and crafts community and offers a range of activities from fishing, hiking and mountain biking. Nelson Lakes and the golden sands of Kaiteriteri Beach are all within an hour's drive. Stonefly Lodge is upscaled, off-grid living at its finest. The whole complex is powered entirely by solar energy and the water is sourced from an on-site spring. The surrounding Valhalla Forest (registered with the NZ Emissions Trading Scheme) provides plenty of wood to keep the home warm and cozy as well as offering additional income in the future. The property also provides an established orchard, vegetable and flower garden, ducks, chickens, beehives and a family of alpacas to manage the vegetation. By the riverbank, there is a two bedroom batch, an ideal Manager's cottage, with fenced paddocks and extensive worksheds. Stonefly Lodge has been run as a highly successful and award-winning fly fishing lodge and the property can be sold as a freehold going concern. Viewing by appointment only. ...
