My grandfather first brought a house in Purakaunui in the 1920’s and it has been a family favourite ever since. I was brought up in Dunedin, taught at a local high school, went back to University as a young mum and trained as a clinical psychologist in the 80’s. Buying As You Like It was a childhood dream and we spent many years bringing it up to modern living standard and restoring its original features. After 20 yrs as a psychologist, I brought a country hotel in Naseby, Central Otago as a complete change. The goal was to restore the 1863 building as I had As You Like It. Now life is a bit more peaceful, living at Purakaunui and enjoying seeing people enjoy Purakaunui as I do.
Why barblm764 chose Dunedin
It is so unique.. a modest, charming and likeable house close to the water. So close it feels like living in a boat.. but not getting sea sick. As a child I always wanted this place... so intimately close to the sea and so easy to get back home to get warm and dry after a days adventures in the sand and sea. The only traffic is by boat or walking which makes for such a peaceful place, yet not isolated. I love the sense of history, getting a feel for how people lived a hundred years ago, but still enjoying some modern comforts.
What makes this House unique
Historic and unique to be so surrounded by the sea.
