Where the Tui Sing
Seeing is believing and from your new lounge on the top of Melville Drive you can soak in sweeping views from rustic rural through to shimmering ocean and out over the plains, township and beyond. On a clear day you can even sometimes sight snowcapped Mt Hikurangi in the distance, this is a wonderland that will excite and amaze you.
The vendors fell in love with this site a number of years ago and built their home to ensure maximum potential, over time they have thoroughly enjoyed raising their family and creating a lifetime of memories. After 38 years, it is now however time to hand the reins to new owners to discover all it has to offer and settle in.
The two level home has 5 bedrooms, although one is currently used as an office. Downstairs you will find a generous double with ensuite, perhaps ideal for extended family or other options.
Upstairs there are 4 bedrooms, the master opening out to a deck with spa pool, especially positioned for the view to relax in after a long day.
The lounge has a handy balcony for relaxing or morning coffee and the views are sensational whichever way you look.
Leading out from the dining and kitchen area will take you to a paved entertainment area that will be used time and time again as guests sit back, watch the kids play hide and seek in the established gardens and take in the changing views all year around.
There are many varieties of edibles in the garden supplying an abundance of fruit along with a range of natives that attract regular birdlife, the Tui are a favourite and more recently a couple of cheeky Weka have been spotted in the backyard. Bring your bird spotting book as there are many more!
There is a dedicated vege patch complete with its own irrigation system and a handy feature is the separate outside building, that could perhaps be claimed by the gardener in the family, or why not explore other uses it could have for you?
The double garaging is large as having handyman work space was important, (ask to see the man cave if inspecting). Apart from this there is a park for your camper or boat and further off street parking.
This is a home that is full of surprises, and having a prime location in one of Whakatanes' most popular streets ensures your family will be very happy here for many years to come. Call me anytime to discuss - Chris Robson 027 577 0029. 'EXPECTING INTEREST OVER $820,000'
