My husband and I are retired farmers who live on a 42h small farm where we graze cows and sheep. We are very active and enjoy travelling,(just back from Brazil) nature, art, reading,music sports. As well as a farm, our property includes a native forest with a stream running through it.Our home is perfect for children with tons of space, great for bike riding( we have both big and little bikes) and outdoor games. We also have a fenced swimming pool which is very safe.Our grandchildren love the place.We also have a self contained cottage which would be suitable for grandparents who may come with your family. 15mins drive from village where there are shops and cafes or 25 minutes from Hamilton city.40 mins from the most wonderful beach in NZ.
We are keen to swap our home for a house somewhere in West Sydney as our daughter (and husband) lives there and we wish to be near her to welcome our new grandchild.
