For the Christmas and New Year's holidays...
Overlooking historic Russell in the Bay of Islands, New Zealand: A beautiful Edwardian country home with views of the Bay and out to sea...3 floors, 3 bedrooms, 4 baths, spa...upstairs the master bedroom has a bath with tub and shower, balcony, and office with computer and printer...the main floor is open plan with antique fireplace, recessed TV, clavinova, and country kitchen with island, sliding doors open to the decks surrounding the house and the barbecue and outdoor table off the kitchen...downstairs are two ensuites with access to the outdoors and the spa, as well as a completely kitted out video room. WiFi throughout.
Very quiet, as the home is situated on a private cup-de-sac, with a double lot, and without passing-by or through traffic. Yet a short walk down to the town and its restaurants, galleries, and museums.
Amazing birdlife (5 weka) and great sunsets.
And Russell is nothing if not entertaining with beaches within minutes, and charter sailing (Phantom!) and game fishing.
Available by the week over the holidays.
