Beautiful country life gilded with G.3 kiwifruit
A comprehensive country property where every aspect displays high quality and care.
The authentic replica villa is beautiful, the vista wide, the garden gracious, the shed superb, the grazing good and the 0.68 canopy hectares of G.3 kiwifruit a bountiful bonus. This 3.0340 hectares has the advantages of elevation for sunshine, protection from prevailing winds, high shelter for the orchard and nice sloping tree dotted paddocks. At first glance the character profile and suggests a home that has settled in over a century. Completed in 2010 this wonderfully spacious four bedroom home built by award winning Harwood Homes references our colonial past while creating contemporary comfort and convenience. Smartclad timber weatherboard and modern aluminium joinery meld with traditional fretwork on wide verandahs. Stained glass in the front door, high stud paneled ceilings, dado walls and decorative cornices are features in a four bedroom home which also displays seamless creamy decor in large open plan living where cavity sliders link a large formal lounge, lots of French doors to covered outdoor living.
Railway sleepers add patina to the beautifully laid out grounds with sweeping lawns, trees and formal gardens which enhance the views to the coast and night lights of Papamoa.
The 113sqm concrete floored, sky lit, vermin proof Aztec shed has two side doors and an extra height end one to accommodate a camper van. The lawns merge into immaculately husbanded L-shaped 0.68 can/ha block of G.3 kiwifruit on agbeam pergola, the fruit currently providing arguably the most lucrative horticultural income per hectare. There is a wide load-out area near the entrance to the property plus yards and loading bay which serve the paddocks each side of the drive, enough to graze a couple of horses, a few sheep or cattle. There could also be scope to plant avocados here and increase the income potential of the property.
Country life does not get much better, here in the hills above Te Puke, almost equidistant between Tauranga and Rotorua
