Where is it?


Situated in a popular residential area on the rural fringe of Masterton, the property is approximately 2 kg from the town centre and close to rail. Wellington the captial city is 1.5 hours away by train or car.

There is a local shop within easy walking distance if you forget the milk! The Tararua mountains, which can be seen from the front of the house, offer walks of varying difficulties. The whole area is surrounded by rivers, lakes and bush.

Masterton is situated in the Wairarapa (population approximately 40 thousand) and is a lively place on the tourist map especially for those who enjoy wine - as the local vineyards at Martinborough are world famous.
