Smallfly, it's only a rental. I wish I owned it??
It's only 5 acres, but very rare because of it's location. The owners says they recently had it valued at around $450 000, which is a good price, but a bit way out of our budget. They are in no hurry to sell and have given us first option, so we could live here for ever if we want O0
The rent is reasonable for it's location and size too, $395 a week O0

Here is some more pic's of the house O0

Never look down upon someone, unless you are helping him up.

 :2funny: squatters rights, ay???

We were very lucky to find this place ;) Just shows, it pays to keep an eye on trademe and jump when you see something O0
Most places are much further out and a lot more expensive ;)

We have a bedsit too, but it doesn't have a toilet or shower. I told the landlord I wanted to offer it out to SAn's that have just arrived, she thought it was a great idea O0
You would have to come into the house to use the bathroom though. If you guys are ok with that, you are more then welcome to stay by us for a couple of days O0
We also have a sunroom inside the house, so plenty of space O0...............or you could pitch a tent in the field ;) ;D

Happy you have a great place, at a good rental.
Chch is really a great place, lives up to everything you have said and things I have heard from other people.   :clap:
We were there on a short visit out of the blue last weekend.  Sun shine, nice warm days, blue skies.  It rained on the way back to Dunedin though.
I was  :'( to leave.

Next time we are up I will let you know.  I would enjoy meeting up with you!
