The Cottage at Brighton Beach

This early 1900’s cottage is one of the most idyllic homes in the Brighton community. This 3 bedroom, 1 bath, home has some of the best views of the popular surf beach for families on the South Island’s east coast. Only a few minutes walk to the dairy for your paper, or the local cafe for a flat white, this cottage is a dream spot in paradise.
Brighton is only 20 minutes from the Dunedin CBD. Mosgiel is 15 minutes over the back hill to another bustling wee community. Green Island is 10 minutes where the doctor, pharmacy, grocer and gym (to name a few) can be found.
Our home is partially double glazed, has a heat pump and wood burner that heats the water and can be cooked on/in. There’s a wee room that can be used as an office/study and plenty of storage, as well as a 1 car garage and off street parking. The bus to town come every hour and takes 45 min to get to town (roughly).
The cottage comes fully furnished. Please no pets or smokers. We love this cottage and want people that can appreciate its heritage and beauty as much as we do.

About Me
I’m an American expat living in beautiful Brighton, Dunedin. We bought our seaside cottage a year ago as a Bach (or holiday home) and then we found our dream home 5 minutes up the road. So now we have a wee gem in paradise to share with others. We have school aged children and met a family from overseas who are using Sabbatical Homes to experience New Zealand as a family while the parent(s) work for the Uni. Brighton is a wonderful, quaint seaside community that is chilled-out and true Kiwi. There’s a dairy (convenience store), a cafe, a club (or local tavern that is members only), surf life saving patrolled beach, surf club, rugby club, bowls club, and a wee school that caters to years 0-8 (first grade to junior high).
