The Best of Town and Country
Once in a while a property comes by that just takes your breath away. This is one of those properties. Nestled at the end of a private lane about 12km from the Whakatane CBD, this home is perfect for those wanting a base in the country but still want to enjoy the conveniences of town.
The sheer size of the home makes it perfect for family living. Alternatively, there's potential for an AirBnB or business venue - the possibilities here are endless.
Entry to the home is via a tree lined driveway and there's sealed undercover parking at the door, as well as a brand new huge barn/implement shed at the entrance to the property for all the vehicles, boats and other toys. The measurements of the implement shed are 9m X 16m and has 5 bays. The property covers approximately 1.77 acres in total and has landscaped grounds, fruit trees and even the remnants of a grass tennis court.
The formal entrance leads into 220m2 of living space. To the left are the formal dining and lounge rooms, which have great views over the landscaped grounds. French doors lead from the living area out to the extensive deck which wraps around the entire front of the property. The formal lounge has a heatpump, stunning timber cathedral-like ceilings and the original open fireplace
Back past the entrance are the kitchen and family room with a computer nook. The timber lined kitchen has ample cupboard and bench space and fabulous views over the grounds. In addition to the informal living spaces, there is a mezzanine floor above which provides a tranquil private area overlooking the living room. This could easily be an additional bedroom, office or lounge. There is an additional heatpump and nearly new wood burner fireplace in the family room, making the home cosy and comfortable in winter.
Upstairs to the master bedroom suite, with a huge walk in wardrobe, full size ensuite and access to further storage in the roof cavity if needed. The mezzanine room is also on this level.
From the living area, head downstairs to the additional three double bedrooms and family bathroom, 2 of these bedrooms open out to the deck and have direct access to the spa pool, which will stay with the house sale. Central heating in the home feeds the warmth from the living area to these bedrooms. There is also another shower and toilet near the entrance for guests.
The exterior is a real treat. Large decks on multiple levels tie the areas of the home together and there are many special features - a wine cellar, a kid's playground and even a little stream meandering through the property.
A special property awaits a new family to call it their own. Your inspection is welcome, we're sure you are going to be impressed.
