A warm and cosy strawbale home built of natural materials, located in the middle of the rail trail. Beautiful outlook to the mountains and countryside. A few minutes walk to the village centre with store and hotel.
Natural features of stone fireplace, earth and lime plastered walls and timber beams. An author's residence, The Strawbale house has a warm cosy interior, filled with books, NZ Art and retro treasures.
The entire house except for the mezzanine floor, which is used for storage.
Interaction with guests
The home is my primary residence, however I stay in a separate stone cottage on the property when there are guests, which is private from the main house. I am on call for any assistance you may need and can give you as much privacy as you want, or more interaction if you want that too. The home is full of personal artwork and books. And if you wish, you can read about the journey to build The Strawbale House in a copy of my published book A Way Home (Potton and Burton).
No smoking inside. Check in 2pm, check out out 10am.
