The Farmhouse was built in the 1950s and has been added to and improved since then. It is above the beach and has sweeping views over Golden Bay and the Tata Headland, and views of the Tata Islands through the trees. Set on 6 acres, the house has a gracious relaxed feel to it and the extensive planting, orchard and gardens give a restful ambience. The gardens are a magnet for birds, with bellbird, tui, kereru and quail frequent visitors.
At the end of the drive, Ligar Bay awaits with the sheltered and safe lagoon area perfect for kids to swim and kayak. Tata Beach and the boat ramp are a few minutes away by car or a pleasant walk.
Ligar Bay is a short 5 minutes to Pohara (general store, takeaways and cafes) and 15 minutes (12km) to Takaka. Abel Tasman National Park is 9 kms away with the beautiful beaches of Totaranui and Awaroa.
