A unique and truly compelling opportunity presents itself as the owners of world-renowned natural fusion 'Moritaki" garden have made the decision to pass on their legacy property to a new generation of owner.
Featured in numerous garden and leisure magazines many of you will already be familiar with the garden created in the lee of Blenheim's Wither Hills which wears the colours of NZ native bush yet bears the stamp of Japan.
Planning and planting commenced 25 yrs ago, 'Moritaki" garden has been a regular feature of Garden Marlborough Festival since 2003 with numerous people visiting over that time. The garden also hosts overseas tour groups.
The meticulous eye of Japanese landscape designer/architect Hiro Yoshida is credited with gifting this garden its unusual essence.
With many contrasting visual elements sometimes the stream burbles and in other areas as in the pond it is silent where the large ferns droop their elegant foliage towards the still waters.
The architecturally designed home is expansive in its approx 288sqm skin. Built by master craftsmen the cedar cladding works so harmoniously with the garden.
Naturally the house living areas all face north and look directly out over the gardens and pond teaming with invited bird life in which this garden abounds.
Located on the edge of Blenheim the site is elevated but flat in what is a semi-rural location yet still very much in touch with the town and its amenities.
The Wither Hills Farm Park and its walks and bike tracks are just a minute away.
This lush and glorious rendition of a native forest and water garden environment with a sympathetic architectural bespoke home awaits a likeminded new owner to love, care and continue the legacy.
The vendors are in no particular hurry and would entertain a settlement well into 2024 or perhaps even 2025.
