Majestic Restored Villa - Private and Family Friendly

DEADLINE SALE with all offers to be in on or before 4.00pm on Thursday, 10th May, 2018 (unless sold prior). Phone for viewing appointment.

A chance to live the country life, this unique home will captivate you from its first glimpse along the driveway. A fully restored villa, over 100 years old, complete with covered verandahs and stained glass windows. From the turret there are commanding views of the Tararua ranges and Kapiti. This home is a fine example of period character, yet offers the convenience of modern comforts.

Featuring beautiful native timbers throughout, there are four generous sized bedrooms, plus a large multi-purpose room upstairs (48sqm). The property has two bathrooms, one with a clawfoot bath and separate shower and the other with a shub. The large open-plan living area consists of a well-equipped kitchen with pantry, double dish-drawer and 5-element gas hob, through to the dining room, then lounge area with wood-burner and TV room or study. Underfloor and ceiling insulation has been added for extra winter warmth. There are lovely rural views from each room and great separation and privacy for family members within the house.

An impressive outdoor entertainment area contains a BBQ, wood-fired pizza oven and seating under a grapevine-covered pergola. Relax in the family-sized spa pool while the family plays cricket on the lawn with the kids in the playground area.

The property has four car garaging, woodshed and workshop. In addition are two barns, utility shed and various animal shelters. Near the house are several garden boxes for veges and herbs, a chook house and an orchard with a great mix of fruit and nut trees.
All this is set on just over 2.5 hectares (6.4 acres) of fully fenced paddocks including a small valley with a pond surrounded by native plantings.

The property is on the border between Kapiti and Horowhenua, an area known for its mild climate and fertile soil. The homestead is approx 10 mins drive to either Otaki or Levin, Waikawa beach is just 5km away and Wellington and Palmerston North are both approx one hour's drive away. The new SH1 upgrades are making the capital city more accessible.

This graceful lifestyle property really needs to be experienced. Please call for your appointment to view.
