An iconic, original homestead, built in the early 1800's and developed further in the 1970's has been cherished as a family home for over 44 years by the current owners.
Positioned on the 'Matakana Golden Mile' this home has far too many features to list - from its stunning polished wooden floors, stunning glass windows and doors, stand-alone traditional claw foot bath and a hand-crafted kitchen butchers block with solid concrete top. With so many special features this home needs to be viewed to appreciate the craftmanship and beauty that it holds.
French doors in the living/dining areas flow effortlessly out to large outdoor decks and a wrap-around veranda.
A separate 55m2 (approx) self-contained one bedroom cottage is an added bonus, it is completely private and has its own covered outdoor veranda. Easy care, well maintained, English country gardens surround the home and cottage, an added bonus being an on-site bore which gives plenty of water for the garden during the dry summer months.
Near the entrance to the property is a large 19 x 10m2 barn which is currently being used as a pop-up antique shop. Being divided into 4 separate rooms, the possibilities for the use of this space are endless; this could easily be made into a perfect man/women shed or used as an extra source of income. There are also a further 2 large sheds dotted around the property, one being a lock up garage with a separate annex attached.
Have you dreamt of escaping the hustle of the city, of collecting your own free range chicken eggs, grazing some sheep, growing your own vegetables or picking fruit from trees in your own orchard? - well this property is for you.
Come and view for yourself this tranquil lifestyle gem. The improved travel time and connection to Auckland makes it a perfect time to secure a property in this highly sought-after holiday destination. Viewing strictly by appointment. Tender Closes pm Friday 29th September 2023
