Today we took possession of our land in Kaitoke. With the final planning permission coming through yesterday it now means that we’re ready to roll.
Some kiwis think that we’re mad to be building so far from town. We like to think we’re part of an exclusive community that sees the merits of country living. Also, there’s plenty of benefits to be close to the city, close to the Wairarapa and centre of a beautiful piece of countryside.
Kaitoke has plenty of history too. In fact, it used to have a railway running through it and there were some royal visitors on 15 Jan 1954 who stopped off in Kaitoke on their way back from the Wairarapa to Wellington. There’s a campaign and plan to redevelop this railway route – see the following link for more details. http://www.rimutaka-incline-railway.org.nz/index.html
