Paradise in Pohangina
Pack up your bags and head out to the country living of Pohangina. Emma Goodwin explores a home in one of Manawatu’s prettiest spots.
Old English village charm and lifestyle but with better weather is what you get in Pohangina. Here people say hello, raise their hand as they drive past and everyone turns out for the school fair. If a little country living is something you are hankering after, then this might just be the perfect place for you and your family.
After all, character-styled homes that are low maintenance are few and far between. This one has all the charm of yesteryear but has been built with modern materials, which means you’re not fixing things every weekend.
This is great news because you are going to want to be enjoying the lifestyle you have bought yourself.
This low-lying, spacious family home has been built with a bull-nosed veranda that stretches the length of the house and offers views across the gorgeous Pohangina Valley that change with the seasons.
Surrounded by paddocks, with a stable block and tack room for horse lovers and yards and a race for stock, this is a practical home, as well as a beautiful one.
