I'm Stephen, a father of two adult children who are currently living in Europe. I have 50 acres of land set high above the township of Taumaranui in central North Island.
I have about 20 cows and there calves on my property who are like children to me. My other hobby is playing golf.
I'm friendly and easygoing and really enjoy meeting new people, and am always up for a chat! However if you prefer some quiet time, then I am happy for you to have that.
My property has views in all directions, mostly distant tree dotted mountains. The property is great for nature lovers and those who enjoy the peace of rural living.
You can easily walk to town (2 minutes) where there are supermarkets, shops, cafes.
