About this listing
Awaawaroa Bay Ecovillage is a home to people who value an ecologically sustainable lifestyle and a community spirit. This mini paradise has been created on a beautiful private and sheltered 417 acres. There are 15 shares in total with 14 resident households and one remaining share which is a vacant block available for purchase. The members' homes are scattered around the central part of the property whereas this site is off to the north boundary and more secluded with just one neighbour and is the only one with a stream beside it. There's also the community owned building for meetings and leisure activities. Each owner has their own allocated 1 hectare to use; one half for the dwelling and the other half for growing or grazing - or as the member decides. The surrounding ridge lines have cleared acreage for grazing and 360 degree views of the island and the sea on both sides, as well as walkways throughout. Following organic practices, the co-op members work to restore the natural habitat, while aiming also to reduce their carbon footprint and effect on the environment, so most of the members live off the grid and have their own wind or solar power and rainwater collection. The top rated Poderi Crisci Restaurant and Vineyard is across the valley and Onetangi Beach (1.6km of white sand) is less than 15 minutes away and includes boat ramps and cafe bars. Although it feels like miles from the hustle of a busy city, some of the members commute to Auckland for work. Ownership for this unique lifestyle is a 1/15th company share of the total 169 Hectares.

Due to there being one title, it's not possible to borrow from a standard bank and offers would need to be cash, although settlement terms are negotiable.
