New Zealand Stone Cottage with Modern Finishes

The flat-front wooden cabinets are so modern and accent the stone walls beautifully.

The eating area and living room share this space in the stone cottage.

Such a lovely view out the front door.

A cozy wood-burning stove provides heat in the cooler months.

Clean lines combined with choppy stone.

Wow! The ceiling in this home is fantastic.

The bathroom is behind that stone wall. Lovely feature.

Outside is the luxurious sauna!

    The question isn’t would I stay there, it’s more like how would you get me to leave after I arrived. Given the opportunity and timing, that could easily be my final home. New Zealand has been on my shortlist for a while to build an ecovillage but more so now with all the crap going on in the US. That is by far the best compliment I’ve given any tiny or small home on this site. You have now released the motivated beast in me. Thank you..

    This is breath taking. I would bring all of my Nikon cameras and take pics all over the place. Love the inside of the cottage. Saw the comment above. I would not want to leave. LMAO!!! The lawn and the flowers, bushes are beautiful. The mountains.

      I agree. I could stay in this little secret garden forever.

        As a Kiwi, I can tell you the hoops, hurdles and (virtual) barbed wire you’d need to navigate planning consents, resource management act consents, and a gazillion other things… I’d think you’d rather want to stay where you are. It would drive you insane.

        Eco village? Only a handful of them in the whole country. Try to get planning consent? All the nimby’s would come out of the woodwork with the same arguments you get in the States. It’ll cause property values to decline. Build one of them villages and nek minit all the homeless people will be there (to which I say, hey not homeless any more are they?)

        Oh, and then there is the cost of building these things as well. Really, really expensive to build in NZ. Just ask Bryce Langston.

    Oh, my gosh! I am drooling. This is so, so beautiful. It is homey, full of space, placed amongst beauty, and just different enough to release my inner maverick. Love this. I can’t figure out what the tower is on the right hand side. The bathroom is on the left, correct? And, that ceiling just warms the entire place up. I love the kitchen. It is also inviting. Did I tell you it is just beautiful? Ahhhh. Give me tea so I can sit in the garden for the afternoon. please?

      I think it might be the shower. I looked at it about 100 times while writing and couldn’t decide! And there were no hints in the Airbnb description either

        While it is hard to tell… looking at it myself I believe that the shower is on the right and the toilet (the John in America?) is on the left. How did I come to that conclusion? Enlarged the pic and that white bit looks suspiciously like the front of the toilet bowl to me.
