  • Property Details

    Creating an environment of healthy, peaceful country living and being at one with nature takes time and passion. Combining that with an ideal home for entertaining family and friends while enjoying the wide Waitamata Harbour views and scenic rural landscape seems a near impossible task. Fortunately, this wonderful property encapsulates it all, plus more. For the health conscious, there are a variety of fruits and vegetables including olive, macadamia, almond, avocado, lemon trees as well as an organic vege patch. Bush walks through the Totara and Kauri groves, which encourage native birds such as Kaka, Kahu, Kereru plus quail and pheasants to be your neighbours, add to the properties appeal. Relax in the inviting lounge or cook in the spacious kitchen complete with butler's pantry and watch the Kahu swoop past the windows. The start to relaxation begins along the long tree-lined driveway past the grazing deer. Arriving at the solid masonry, two storied home reminiscent of a Tuscan or English countryside villa, you will feel instantly connected with the environment. Unity between the interior and alfresco areas surrounded by beautiful sweeping lawns is easily achieved from the casual and formal living areas. Unobstructed views over the protected native bush to Rangitoto are available from these rooms plus the master suite. Two more double bedrooms are on the upper level with the fourth on the ground floor. With approximately 2.2 elevated hectares as your playground, you will see why this property has been nurtured for the past 15 years.
