You'll think you are a world away when you come home to your own tranquil country hideaway in the Metro area.

To date these springs have never stopped flowing, even in summer, and have for 33 years been the only water source for the family home. Part of a once, much larger, 80 acre farmstead in use a hundred years ago, this land has now been rezoned to allow subdivision to 5 acre blocks.

An amazing opportunity to set your family up for the future, with investment and development options when you're ready.
