Our house is so quiet in its lovely rural setting (in the middle of a farm), only an orchestra of birdsong 'disturbing' the peace, along with occasional stock farming sounds. Contemporary NZ art lines the walls, and the garden is often full of flowers. Access to so many things is so easy, with clear mountain rivers, lakes, and the sea all being within an hour's drive. Local service town, Darfield, with doctors, workshops, 3 restaurants etc, just 10 mins away, and Christchurch airport 50 mins, centre 1 hour away. Equidistant for skiing at Mount Hutt or the Craigieburn Range, so choose your field, and choose your day! About an hour either way. At least 10 golf courses within an hour, including the picturesque Hororata Golf Club 10 mins and Terrace Downs 40 mins away.
