Welcome Bay - No Power Bills Here! - SOLD Listing: LS2015
Property Profile

72 Shady Lane (off Kaitemako Road), Welcome Bay


Ever wanted to live on an island with your own currency and where complete self sufficiency would be the order of the day?


This property is the next best thing.


Our vendor built his home in 1996, way above the tsunami line, high on a hill with bird's eye rural and sea views, and he hasn't paid a power bill since! As a result of his ingenuity, power is generated by windmill, solar and backup generator and the home is kept beautifully cozy and warm from controlled under floor water heating throughout.


8 hectares of land provide plenty of meat for the freezer and there's fun to be had for the children in the swimming hole, tadpoling or with their horses and trail bikes.


Farmside satellite internet access keeps you in touch with the outside world - which after all is only 20 minutes away in downtown Tauranga city


Hillary, the pet cooney cooney pig, loves life here - I'm sure you will too!
